Year 3 are given homework every week. Spellings are given out on Monday. Children practice these throughout the week in school and should practice them at home throughout the week. Spelling homework is due the following Monday, when children will complete a spelling quiz on the words learnt.
English homework is set on Monday, to be completed by Wednesday. Maths homework is set on Wednesday, to be completed by Friday.
Homework can be set either in paper or online format. Online homework is through Education City and MyMaths, see the links below. Children have individual logins for these.
Your child will need help completing the homework. Thank you for your support!
This year the children performed an exciting twist on the classic Nativity. Taking inspiration from Strictly Come Dancing, the children gave a wonderful retelling of the birth of Jesus Christ through dances and interviews. Lights, Camel, Action! excited children and they worked well together.
We have been studying African music, thinking about how it makes us feel. It certainly got us up on our feet!
We then performed our own version of 'Siyahamba', which is a South African hymn and it mean 'We Are Marching'.
The children then performed to Year 4 who evaluated their performance. They were very impressed!
This term we have been studying the Paleolithic, Mesolithic and the Neolithic periods of the Stone Age and the Bronze and Iron Ages. Children have researched and studied different tools and how they have contributed to the survival of the early humans. We have visited Touchstone Museum in Rochdale, with tools that we have created, to have them critiqued by a real archaeologist. We have really enjoyed learning all about the prehistoric periods of human history!
