Welcome to the Spring Term Woodpeckers!
What a busy and wonderful start to the term.
On Monday 22nd January, we enjoyed learning with two very different expert visitors. We spent the morning learning all about resilience, team work and tower building. As you can see, the Woodpeckers did brilliantly, working well in their groups and persevering with many tower tumbles!
In the afternoon, Charlotte Collyer kindly gave up her afternoon to help with our Science lesson on plants. The children learnt all about micro plants -WOW! Warmth, oxygen and water - three essentials for growing all of our seeds. Don't forget to ask how they are doing each week!
We are also having a focus on handwriting. By the end of Year 3, there is an expectation that children will be joining all of the time and they need to make sure that their ascending letters (b, d. h, k, l, t) are tall and their descending letters (f, g, j, p, q, y) go below the line.
Home Learning/Spelling Routine:
As in Year 2, home learning is handed in on a Thursday and apart from over the holiday, your child has a home learning activity to complete each week. Home learning will be handed back to the children on a Friday.
In Year 3, the children use the Read, Write Inc spelling scheme. We are awaiting the arrival of the work books so in the meantime we are working on spelling errors that have become apparent in the first week.
The children need to have their P.E. kits in school on a Monday as they begin their week with a P.E. session first thing on Monday morning.
We have had our first swimming session already and the children were great at getting themselves ready in the short time that they have.
The links above will take you to more detailed information about our work this term.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to speak to either of us at the end of the school day or make an appointment at the school office.

On Wednesday 3rd October, Years 3 and 4 visited Lunt Fort built by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago.
What a great trip we had! We learnt how to march whilst shouting 'Sin Dex - Sin Dex' (Left Right) and discovered the daily life of a Roman soldier living in Britannia amongst the crazy Celts.
