World football day
To celebrate The World Cup today we had a Football Day which consisted of World Cup comprehension, football skills and watching some of the England matches!
Take a look at what we’ve been up to.
This week we were visited by the PCSOs who taught us all about road safety and the green cross code.
Have a look at some of the posters we made showing how to stay safe when crossing the road.

Take a look at our work below.
Homework 25th May
Over half term we would like the children to keep a diary for a day. They will need to write about their day using descriptive language, conjunctions and sentence openers. They can also add the time that they did each event in the day to practise writing the time digitally, including AM and PM.
Due on the 8th of June.
We recreated a giant clock and practised using the correct hands to make different times.
Homework - 18/05/18
Our new topic in maths is time, we would like children to practise telling the time at home as much as they can!
The last 2 weeks in Art we have been focusing on sketching and using different line types and tone to produce an image.
Today we moved on to collage. We used different materials including paper, card and fabric to fill our pictures and create tone and texture.
Homework - 11/5/18
Using the learning your children have done in Science this week, we would like the to find 5 to 10 objects around the house or garden and predict whether they are magnetic or non-magnetic. If they wish, the children can then test these predictions using magnets at home or using the internet.
Please write down the material of the object and your predictions for us to see!
Homework is in for Friday 18th May.
Thank you :)
Magnets in Science
This term we are learning all about magnets and forces in science. Last week we investigated which materials are magnetic and which are non-magnetic. We tested lots of materials, including different types of metals, wood, cardboard, plastic and rubber bands! We were surprised to find that not all metals are magnetic.
Last week we carried out an investigation to see which magnet was the strongest! We used paperclips and a ruler to see how far the magnet could pull the paperclip from.
This week in maths we are learning to find fractions of amounts. We started today using lots of different resources, including counters and cubes, to help us find a fraction of an amount. We learnt that to do this, we need to divide the whole into equal groups, depending on the denominator. Well done Year 3!
Last week we celebrated St George's day.
In class we learnt all about democracy and how we all have to follow and are protected by the same laws (even the Queen!)
Throughout the week we completed some British Values based art, looking at Lady Justice in the style of Picasso and created some collage inspired by British soldiers.
Have a look below at our wonderful display!
