Year 3 - Saracens

Weekly Update (Week ending 22.3.19)


This week in English, we have started our new book 'Atlas of adventures'. We have been finding out different information using the text. We got our passports and flew to Finland to learn about the Northern Lights. The next day we went to London and had a great view of the city from the London Eye and then we jetted to Paris for a virtual tour of The Louvre.  


In maths we have been learning about money.We have been subtracting different amounts of money.  


We have been learning all about Holi. It is a Hindu festival that celebrates the beginning of Spring. We have made some Holi art work by making explosions of colour using watery paint and blowing it on to coloured card. 


We have started our tooth decay experiment. We have put some eggs into different liquids and will now wait to see if anything happens! 


Thank you to everyone who came to our class assembly on Thursday. It was amazing and the children worked so hard to put on a fabulous show for you. I hope you enjoyed it!


We have our Spring concert coming up on the last week of term so please keep rehearsing the songs at home.


Have a lovely weekend 


Mrs Harris

Next week ……...

In maths we will continue our learning about money


Science and Topic

We will be finishing our experiment on tooth decay and start making our volcanoes




Can you bring in any old newspaper for our volcano? How do you think we will be making them?



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 and sentences 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!



Thursday and swimming on Tuesday afternoon
