Year 3 - Saracens

Weekly Update (Week ending 18.1.19)


We have had such an eventful few days! Our classroom had a break in and we could not believe the mess! We discovered that it must have been the bear from our 'Book club' story. We found paper planes and and angry note from the bear. I am sure you have heard all about it and we will be looking at how to resolve the issue over the next week.


In English we have been learning about twisting traditional tales. We started by reading 'How the library (not the prince) saved Rapunzel' and discussed what we liked and disliked about the new story. After this, we twisted 'The three little pigs' and turned it into 'The three little children and the big bad teacher' it was hilarious coming up with these ideas. We have then turned other tales into more exciting and gruesome versions of the original. 


In maths we have been learning about the 4 x tables and how we can use different methods to work out the equations. 


In topic we have been looking at diet and comparing a human diet to an animal diet. We pretended we worked in a zoo and we had to order different types of food for the animals depending of if they were carnivores. omnivores or herbivores. We have also been learning about Roman Gods and comparing them to Greek Gods.


Have a lovely weekend

Next week ……...



We will be learning about play scripts and how we read plays. 



In maths we will be learning how to use our knowledge of the 4 times table to help us learn our 8 times table


Science and Topic

We will be researching Roman life in history. In science we are  looking at how healthy our meals are.. 



Talk about any plays you have seen and compare this to a book.


Homework (to be handed in on Wednesday)

We have changed the way we do homework in Lower Key Stage 2 this term.  Children will have a homework book sent home with them.  Inside is a grid (as below), please select one activity to complete per week (this sheet will last until half term).  Please complete this homework in the homework book, alongside weekly spellings and sentences (as before)- also completed in the book. 


One week, homework is a family week- NO HOMEWORK! So no need to record this in the book. 

You may choose this option for one very busy week, or when you have a lovely activity planned. Enjoy! Spellings must still be completed in the book every week.

This has been explained to the children, so hopefully they will explain this much better than I can!





Have a lovely break

Mrs Harris
