We have really settled back in now and are enjoying being in Year 3.


Last week we had a little bit too much fun! 

Maths - In Maths we have been learning to tell the time. We enjoyed using the clocks to help us and thought it was funny when a few hads fell off! (oops!) It would be great if you could help us learn to tell the time at home too! Ask your child 'What time is it?' regularly to help them practice. 

Science - In Science last week we learnt all about what Plants need to grow and the Plant life cycle. Now we know this we will be able to grow our own plants!


This week we are starting lots of new and exciting learning! 

Science - We are finishing our plants unit this week with some exciting experiments! I wonder what we will find out?

English - We have been looking at Norse Myths and we are going to be thinking about using adverb starters in our writing this week! This will help us make our writing more detailed and exciting! 

P.E - We are REALLY enjoying our Athletics unit. This week we will be learning to throw javelins and long distance running.

On that note can you please help your child to remember a spare pair of socks and shoes for P.E. We go on the field first thing in the morning, at this time of year the ground can be wet first thing. We need a spare pair of shoes and socks so we are not in wet socks and trainers all day. I would recommend wearing 'school shoes' all day and changing to 'P.E trainers' for the session. This is in our uniform policy under P.E kit.

Sentences of three for description written by children in Class Onyx! 


The fireworks whizzed across the starry night, spirals of blinding golden sparks erupted and boomed as loud as guns on the battlefield.

The fireworks were crying with colour, twizzled above our heads and then accelerated across the sky.

The fireworks twizzled across the pitch black sky, gleaming like shooting stars and fizzing like a storm of spirals.

The fireworks raced up into the sky, exploded into hundreds of fiery sparks and disappeared into the darkness.

The fireworks zoomed into the sky exploding into bursts of colour, dived down and vanished.

The fireworks boomed as spirals of blinding golden sparks erupted, crackling rockets roared above our heads and fierce crimson flames raged.

The fireworks zoomed across the night sky, bursting into a disco in the sky and filling it with colour.

The fireworks whizzed across the night sky, bursting into beautiful circles in the sky and flashing brightly like lightening.

The fireworks whizzed across the starry sky, bursts of colour exploded and they roared above our heads.

The fireworks raced across the colourful sky, swirling with pride and exploded above us.

The fireworks raced across the starry sky, twizzling with beauty and blazing with pride.


Art work based on Paul Klee.
