The End of The Stone Age! 20.10.17

Dear Parents and Carers,

What a wonderful start to Year 3 we have had! The children have been a delight to teach and so engaged in their learning.

This week marks the end of the Stone Age as we will be moving on to the Iron Age next half term.

We have had a lot of great lessons learning all about Diwali this week. It has been lovely to hear first-hand from our Hindu followers how they celebrate.

In Science, we learned about the process of fossilisation. Please ask your child all about sedimentary layers of rock forming over a dead sea creature to form a fossil. We brought this process to life in the classroom with slices of bread and foam sweets. Do check your child’s book bag as many students have brought them home to share their learning with you: they won’t be pleasant in a week’s time!

Homework for half-term allows for creativity. The instructions are attached. This is due in on Tuesday, 7th November. We will be sharing their homework with the whole of Year 3 on Thursday (09.11.17) morning at 9:05 in the main hall. You are all very welcome to join us and this will be an opportunity to watch their dance videos too.

We hope you all have a restful, safe and happy half-term and look forward to seeing all the children on the 30th October.

The Year 3 Team.
