Year 3 Autumn 1 Week 2

Date: 13th Sep 2019 @ 4:43pm

A lovely week in Year 3!

Continuing with our whole school theme of Trolls, we selected one of the characters and discussed their behaviour and personality. We then considered the character’s actions in relation to our school value of Hope and reminded ourselves of the importance of having a positive outlook. We linked this to our school motto ‘choose wisely’ and recognised that happiness and kindness are choices we can make. We realised that any act of kindness we make can have a ‘ripple effect’, bringing happiness to ourselves and others.

In Collective Worship this week, we enjoyed exploring our new monthly value ‘Creation’. We discussed how God made each one of us unique and then we selected adjectives to describe our personal qualities.

On Wednesday, we enjoyed our first class visit to Formby Pool and had fun. Today, we celebrated Roald Dahl Day by reading extracts from his books and examined the imaginative vocabulary he invented. Excitement filled the air as we created our own words!

Spellings for next week are as follows:

Group 1: fearless, sadness, playful, payment, happiness, loneliness, brightness, hopeless, movement, beautiful.

Group 2: annoying, thirsty, statue, whisper, phone, morning, drew, tomatoes, haunted, Thursday.

In the words of Roald Dahl, have a ‘splendiferous’ weekend everyone!

Autumn 1 Week 1

Date: 6th Sep 2019 @ 4:39pm

It was lovely to be greeted by so many smiling faces when we returned to school on Tuesday.

This week we enjoyed a detective hunt which began when we found a letter from Poppy, from the Trolls movie, and ended when we discovered a special message which read:

‘Happiness isn’t something you put inside you. It is already there! Sometimes you just need someone to help you find it.’

We discussed what this message means and the children recognised that the Trolls work hard to help themselves and others to feel happier so we thought about what we can do to also achieve this.

In Collective Worship, we shared what makes us happy at home and in school. We recognised that 'gratitude is the best attitude’ and decided that one of our class goals is to try our best to notice what we should be grateful for, as this in turn, will help our happiness and that of others. We are looking forward to put into practice our Notice-Think-Feel-Do model.

This week we have particularly enjoyed designing and creating our own Trolls and sharing our hope and dreams for Year 3.

Wishing you all a ‘happy’ weekend!

Please find below spellings for next week. We use the flip learning approach to spellings which means the children have the choice to begin learning these spellings over the weekend. On Monday we will have our weekly spelling session in preparation for the spelling quiz on Thursday. This will happen every week, please return spelling books by Thursday. 

Group 1: copied, happier, chillier, funniest, biking, making, closest, latest, shiniest, completed. 

Group 2: wood, afraid, coin, week, bright, coach, group, search, before, scared. 

Welcome to Year 3!

Miss Fitzpatrick would like to wish you a warm welcome to Year 3!

During the Autumn term, PE lessons will take place on Tuesday afternoon and Swimming on Wednesday afternoon. Children must have the correct indoor/outdoor PE kits with them and swimming kits on the relevant days.

This term, children in Year 3 will have a recorder lesson each Thursday afternoon and their recorders will stay in school. More information regarding this will be sent out shortly.

Children are encouraged to bring a snack each day to be eaten at break times. Please remember to provide your child with only a healthy snack – e.g. fruit, vegetables.

Bottles of water with a sports cap type lid are also encouraged so the children can drink as and when they need it throughout the day.

Please see the Powerpoint below for all additional information to ensure your child has the best start to Year 3.

I am looking forward to another year with you all and I am excited to see what wonderful things this new year brings.

Thank you!
