Year 3

In year 3 there is lots to remember so here is a brief overview of our week…

  • PE: Monday/Friday

Please remember school PE kit must be worn for indoor and outdoor. Earrings must be removed by child or parents before the session (teachers cannot do this nor can they be covered). Children will not be able to take part in PE if earrings are worn.

  • Homework is given on Friday and this will be both Literacy and Maths. This must be returned by Wednesday. Your children will be expected to attend homework club if it is not returned. Your child is more than welcome to attend homework club on a Monday or Tuesday if homework cannot be completed at home.
  • Spellings are given on a Monday and tested on the following Monday
  • Reading books are changed regularly. We ask that your child reads at home 5 x per week.

World War 1

We really enjoyed our WW1 topic. We know which countries took part in the war and some of the reasons for war.  We walked to the war memorials in Hetton and Easington Lane and remembered those who had lost their lives.  Some of us even saw names of people we were related to.

 

We took part in a workshop looking at the life of a WW1 solider.  We got to handle a shell, a rifle and some of the equipment they would have.  We also sang some songs from the war.  Our main area of study was the Christmas Day Truce.  We found out all about the football match between the German and British soldiers and reflected on how they may have felt at the time.  

Bones and Skeletons

Our favourite Science topic was all about bones and skeletons. We visited Sunderland Winter Gardens and Marie told us all about the scientific names for our bones and information on the joints where the bones connect. To help us remember the names we learned a song. Can you guess what it is?

We also investigated animal bones and skeletons and had to identify which animal the skeletons belonged to.
