Weekly Update on Thursday December 6th 2018

Well done, Year 3 for working really hard in our Assessments this week! You have been a credit to KS2!

This week in Maths, we have been Counting on to Subtract, Multiplying and Dividing. In English, we are currently planning our own Information Texts, based on The Tree Giant Text. In Science, we have been looking at Soil and in Topic/DT, we have been planning our African-themed makes. We have also been making Christingles for this evening's service at HTCD.  PE, French, Music, RE and Chess continue as usual. Cherry 1 had a fun (indoor) Forest School project yesterday afternoon as the weather was simply atrocious!

In Maths next week, we will move on to Strategies for Addition and Subtraction and Problem-Solving. In English, we will be writing our own Information Texts based on the Tree Giant Text. In Topic, we look forward to finding out about everyday life in Africa, courtesy of a visit from Nicholas's Mum and in Topic/DT, we hope to start sewing. Please let us know as early as you can if you are able to support us with this, as our project is only really viable with adult support. On the afternoon of Wednesday 12th, Cherry 2 will have their Forest School session, so please bring the necessary kit as it could be wet and muddy!

Please also continue with Spelling, Reading and Maths support at home, as these can greatly improve the children's performance in these areas. Please note also that some extra Homework Challenges have come out in Homework books. Enjoy!

Have a lovely week!
