European Day of Languages – 25th Sept 2020

The children in Chestnut and Rowan had a fantastic day on Friday learning about all things Italian! They drew flags, learnt the numbers to 20, played Italian bingo, learned how to say hello and goodbye and to say the alphabet phonetically, played board games, completed a wordsearch and had a “cr-afternoon” making fans, Venetian masks and bridges out of spaghetti and marshmallows!

Term 1 – Maths ‘Key Instant Recall Facts’

This year in maths we will be focusing on Key Instant Recall Facts with a different focus each term.

Year 3’s term 1 focus is: ‘I know number bonds for all numbers to 20′.

To compliment the children’s learning at school, please could you help them at home as the key to these facts becoming embedded in the children’s memory is to practise little and often.

If you have any questions, please contact your class teacher via ClassDojo.

Many thanks

The Year 3 Team

Welcome to Year 3 – 2020/2021

We’d like to say a big ‘hello’ to all our new children and families joining us in Chestnut and Rowan this year. We really enjoyed welcoming the children back into school on Thursday and it was lovely to see all of them smiling and excited to be back after such a long time away.

Our PE day will be Thursday.  Please can you ensure your child has a full PE kit in school, clearly labelled so they can participate fully in our PE activities. Please could you also remove any jewellery (e.g. earrings, etc.) before the children come into school.

Please could you also ensure your child has a named water bottle in school each day to keep them hydrated and able to learn.

We look forward to getting to know you all over the next few weeks.  If you have any queries, please direct them to your class teacher via ClassDojo or phone/email the office.

As a reminder, the school day start and finish times are as follows for each class:

Rowan8.30am start, 3.00pm finish
Chestnut8.50am start, 3.20pm finish

Please adhere to these start and finish times to minimise the number of people on the school site at any one time and to allow social distancing to be observed.

Many thanks for your understanding
