3EM week 4
Well done to Abdullah for achieving 10 out of 10 on his weekly spellings.
Arithmetic scores have improved and remember you can play TTRS at home for free!
Very impressed with how much reading the children are doing, changing their books up to three times a week!
We are drawing closer to our Christmas Production which is looking great so far. Remember to bring in your costumes asap and let your teacher know if you need help with costumes.
Christmas jumper day is on Tuesday and we will be spending Tuesday morning making festive decorations to hang on our gigantic Christmas tree.
School disco is on the 12th Dec 6-7:30pm and the class party is on the 16th Dec.
Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday

Week Beg 26.11.19
Congratulations to Daisy who has received 'Star of the Day' this week. Hard work, kindness and contributing to the class really do make a difference.
Congratulations to our new school councillors Seren and Elijah. Mrs Eliis was so impressed with the first meeting last week.
We were fortunate to have Miss Brerton join us for a one week placement. The children have benefitted from her support, especially with reading.
The year 3 production will now take place at Newsome High School, letters with details have been sent home. Please make sure that your child will be available for the after school performance (slip to be returned to school as soon as possible).
3EM Week 3
Can you believe it, we are half way through the 2nd half term? The children are continuing to impress me with their hard work and attitude to learning. We are so close to achieving the 150 mark on the whole class cylinder, just a few counters away from having 1 hour of playing games on laptops.
We were fortunate to have Miss Surman join us for a one week placement. She enjoyed herself so much, that she will be coming back to join us as a volunteer. A few children were tearful when she left, just shows how much impact you have over a small amount of time.
As Maths leader, I was so impressed with the children's understanding of multiplying numbers using the grid method. I hope you are ready for division next week!
Spelling and arithmetic scores are still a focus. Please spend 15 minutes learning spellings and facts with your children so that they can use and apply their knowledge in every day lessons.
The year 3 production will now take place at Newsome High School, letters with details will be sent home next week.
Enjoy the extra two days and I will see you all on Tuesday.
Mrs Mitchell :)
Week Beg 18.11.19
Welcome to Miss Huggett who is on placement from college this week. The children have benefitted from her support, especially with reading.
Congratulations to Aminah, Cassara, Harry, Charlie and Amelia, who have all received 'Star of the Day' during the last couple of weeks. Hard work, kindness and contributing to the class really do make a difference.
We finally got outside this week for PE. Although a little chilly, at least it was dry! Please check that your child has a full PE kit in school, including a sweatshirt and leggings/tracksuit bottoms. The children were developing their football skills and all made progress with dribbling a ball. We also started a dance theme this week and the children made excellent Roman soldiers preparing for battle.
3EM Week 2
The Black History Month competition work is now up on display in the year 3 corridor. I am so pleased with the effort that went into the project.
Rehearsals have started and it is looking great! Parents and carers you are in for a treat on Wednesday 11th December.
Spellings scores have increased and don't forget to practise your times tables. Well done to Sheikhomar and Burhaan for moving onto their 8 times tables.
The boys are half way through to achieving their times table glow in the dark band.
Congratulations to our new school councillors Mathilda and Tyren. Mrs Eliis was so impressed with the first meeting today. There is a Pudsey Bear colouring in competition. Please bring these in by next Thursday.
Pride in presentation is a focus and I hope to send more children to see Miss Fraser next week.
Have a lovely weekend and I will see you all on Monday :)
Class 3LG Wk Beg 11.11.19
Rehearsals have begun this week for our Christmas production. It is early days, but enthusiasm has been in abundance! Please help your child to learn the lyrics of the songs and if their lines if they have a speaking part.
Children are loving listening to the story of George's Marvellous Medicine, which we are reading whilst Roald Dahl features as our author this term.
In literacy we are looking at newspapers. Please encourage children to have a look at newspaper articles and ask them to identify some features. First News is a newspaper written for children, although articles within the Examiner will also have features we have been looking at too.
3EM Autumn 2 week 1
Wow, what a busy week!
The children have worked hard during assessment week and some children were actually disappointed that it was over!
The Black History Month competition ended today and we had some fantastic efforts. Well done to our two finalists, Evelyn and Mohsin.
Over half the class achieved full marks in arithmetic but only 3 made the super spellers board. Class counters for

3EM week 8
The children have completed the first half term and should be proud of themselves.
In honour of Black History Month, the children researched about the famous Alice Coachman, a dedicated and determined high jumper.
We are also holding a competition, where the children can find out information about another famous black leader and present their findings as they wish. The deadline is Friday 8th November 3:15pm. Prizes will be awarded to the best effort made.
Yesterday, the children were rewarded with a cinema experience for achieving 1000 dojos over the half term. After half term, dojos will be replaced with counters to fill a container.
Homework over the half term is to read every day for 15 minutes, learn arithmetic facts and spellings.
Spelling tests will now take place on Fridays.
Have a lovely and safe half term break and we will see you all on Monday 4th November 2019.
3EM week 6
This week the children have been working hard understanding properties of 3D shapes. I was particularly impressed with their attempts of making 3D shapes. Even though this was tricky, they had lots of fun.
13 children achieved full marks on their arithmetic facts test WOW!
In PE the children have been practising how to balance on mats and then onto apparatus. We have a lot of have some flexible athletes!
Next week, the children will be painting Roman designs onto a vase.
At the end of the half term, children will be going home with a copy of the Christmas production script. Auditions will be held after the half term.
We had 6 super spellers this week, who got full marks this week. Please practise this week's spellings ready for our test on Monday.
Congratulations to Elizabeth, Thomas, Charlie, Mackenzie and Ruby for completing some amazing Roman themed homework.
The children now have their username and passwords for TTRS and are ready to compete. Battle of the bands started yesterday and will finish at the end of the Autumn term.
This week, the children have been learning a song, "Just like a Roman". The actions are fun and easy to learn.
We certainly have some Mathematicians in our class. This week, we have been learning how to add numbers mentally and then using a number line.
In English, the children will be learning how to write a character description, we hope to share those next week.
It's week 2 and the children are still working really hard.
Well done to those children who achieved 10/10 on the spelling and arithmetic facts!

The mosaics are looking fantastic and we should be finished by next week.
Remember Outdoor PE is on Monday and Indoor PE is on Tuesday.
Have a lovely weekend
First week in year 3!
Year 3 have settled into Junior School smoothly. It's clear from their attitude to learning and behaviour that they were more than ready for Junior School.
Well done for remembering to bring in your planners, learning your spellings and arithmetic facts and keeping a log of the books you have been reading at home and at school.
So far, I have seen some amazing pieces of ART/DT work for the Roman Holiday Project. Don't worry, you still have three weeks to enter.
Next week, we hope to have our first ICT lesson, where you will receive a username and password and login details for TTRS.
Keep up the hard work year 3!
