A message of thanks…

Kate, Jane, Matthew, Giles, Debs and Dave would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who sponsored our 40 mile ‘Trek Through the Night’ walk. We set off at midnight and we all crossed the finish line at 3.30pm yesterday (Sunday).   It was one of the hardest things we have ever done and we were one of very few teams who crossed the finish line with all members standing.  Knowing that we had everyone’s support made such a difference.
We’ve raised about £3000 for Action Medical Research which is a fantastic amount.  And it’s still not too late to donate if you would like to – just follow this link https://www.action.org.uk/sponsor/TheSlendertones

MAPP Day

A reminder it’s MAPP day tomorrow. If your child is going to do a sports activity please come dressed in your kit. It is school uniform as always.

Please have a chat to your child about how they are going to behave when off school premises to support the expectations of the school and ensure that they stay safe.

Thank you

Miss Conner

Our World

As part of our project ‘One World’ we are going to be learning about walls and borders. We want to bring this learning to life for the children by constructing our own, year 3 wall! We are therefore in need of lots of junk materials like old cereal boxes, large milk cartons, any other boxes you might have.

We are also in the need of little figures such as lego men, so that the children can appreciate the scale of the wall!

If you could bring things in for Monday that would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

The year 3 team.

Other than all the books…

Other than all the book week events, our creative afternoon and the start to our one world project we have continued to look at onomatopoeia’s and making up phrases to describe sounds we hear at home.

In Maths we have carried on learning about fractions.

What we do to find out a tenth of an amount such as 34. Reminding our selves of what happens to a number when it is divided by 10 helped us. Look back at previous post or our Maths page to remind you. We have also been learning about adding two fractions together. Ask any member of 3EC to tell you why we don’t add together the denominator.

This weekend why not eat a pizza or slice up some fruit into equal pieces. What fraction of the slices will you eat? Keep reading and think about all the places in the world your family come from.

Have a great one,

Miss Conner
