In English, the children have been reading the Greek myth 'Pandora's box'. With our own mystery box in our classroom, the children have been creating persuasive posters to entice me to open the box. We will found out if they worked on Monday. They have been working hard and their final posters were impressive.
Year 3 Maths lessons have been focused on improving the children's fluency with addition and subtraction. They are now able to use formal notation and exchange when subtracting.
Our Science topic has been about nutrition and the body. This week we used jelly and play dough to recreate the heart and lungs, then investigated the best way to protect them using pipe cleaner bones. The whole class were engaged and the questions asked were well thought out and furthered their learning greatly.
I have been happy to see such high quality homework coming in to be marked. I mark Fox class homework every Wednesday afternoon to be returned at the end of the day. This week we ask that all homework books be brought in to be marked.
Please make sure your children have their PE kit in school everyday. We are planning to do indoor and outdoor PE this term, so please ensure your child's PE kit includes a warm jumper.
Individual and sibling pictures will be taken on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
Parents Evenings are on Tuesday and Thursday from 4pm. We ask that you please be on time.
