Summer Term

   Welcome back to the Summer Term.  We will be very busy this term and have some important Sacramental Programme dates, which are:

1st May (Friday)  First Reconciliation (St James Church – 6pm).

21st May (Thursday) First Holy Communion meeting (The Ark – 3pm).

21st June (Sunday) Holy Communion (St James Church – 11am Mass).

21st June (Sunday) Holy Communion Breakfast (St James School Hall – After Mass).

26th June (Friday) Whole School Celebration Mass (St James Church – 9.15 am).

We also welcome back Miss Scaife, a PGCE student, who will be working with Class 3.

This term we will be learning about the Romans in history.

In Science we will be looking at animals, skeletons and looking at how plants grow.

In English we have already started looking at advertisements;  watch this space for our final edits.  Once our advertisements are complete, we will be moving on to using traditional tales to make play scripts.

In Maths we have been looking at division, and will be moving on to geometry shortly.  We have also been continuing with our daily tables practice and weekly problem solving.  Please help your child wherever possible to practise their tables; the ones they need to learn this year are in the front of their homework book.

Our ICT time will be used to have a go at using coding to create our own programmes, as well as continuing with Lexia or Nessy.  Most of our ICT programmes can be accessed from home, and all the login information you need should be in the front of your child’s reading record.  Please do not hesitate to ask if you need further information about logging on to programmes at home.

Our art will be linked to our topic.  We are going to be looking at Roman shields and mosaics.

PE will continue with Terri on a Tuesday morning and all children should have a full PE kit in school on that day.

Reading books and reading records need to be in school every day and will be changed as and when necessary.  We thank you for your continued support in hearing your child read.  Guided reading sessions will continue on a Friday morning.

We have an exciting event coming up in music later this year (details to follow), so it is really important that your child brings their instrument into school every Friday morning and takes it home again Friday evening so that they can practise.

This is just a brief outline of what we will be covering this term.  If you wish to find out more about what we are learning, please look at the curriculum overview pages for more detailed information.

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at home for all the wonderful outfits you created, the day was a great success and enjoyed by everyone in year three.
