Parrots

We are a year 3 class.  Our Teacher is Mrs. Wood and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Smith.
 
This week in Parrots Class:
We have been writing our leaflets about Salisbury this week as well as improving our use of adjectives and conjunctions in English.  In maths we have been concentrating on developing our strategies for mental addition and subtraction, using equipment to support this thinking.  We have been collecting evidence about ourselves in Science to begin to collate a database that we can look at through the year.  In addition we have continued with our singing, discussing different types of land use and street dance as well as ball skills.

Our Home Learning choices. These are to be brought in, or emailed ready for a Monday afternoon:
 
NB: The children need to bring in their Reading Related Activity books this Friday 13th October instead of home learning from the menu.  We will be sharing work from these on Monday 16th October.

 

Maths Passports:
The passports should be first dated by your child when they think they have achieved the goal, then by yourselves when you think they have achieved the goal and that is when we will check them in school and move them on. Try to complete at least one goal per week.
We have given out the passports now.  Please make sure the passport has been signed by your child and yourself before being handed in for checking.  If the passport is not waiting for checking then it needs to stay inside the reading record book at all times.
 
 
P.E:
We have P.E sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday, please make sure your kit is in.
 
Reading:
We change our reading books on a Monday and Thursday.  If you have finished your book before these times, find something to read at home and write it in your reading record.
