How Does Our Human Body Work?
We've enjoyed another busy week of learning in Year 3. Monkeys performed wonderfully in their class assembly! This week, we have created our own explanation text on a system in the body and wowed our teachers with our scientific knowledge. We've learnt about the purpose of muscles and the skeleton and planned an investigation to see how we can test our muscles.
Year 3 have also begun reading and writing all about George's marvellous medicine.
We're looking forward to another fun week of learning next week.
The Year 3 Team
Mindfulness Body Scan
If your child would like to take part in a mindfulness exercise at home (the body scan) please click on the link below
In Year 3 we would love for your child to read as frequently as possible. Your child has a reading book and a Reading Record diary that you can write comments in. We are also keen to see children writing their own comments about what they have read! Each Wednesday, your child will be sent home with a reading comprehension activity. Please complete this with your child for the following Wednesday.
Writing (We love writing!)
Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text.

BIG Write and the BIG Talk!
Every Thursday your child takes part in the Big Write. We would love for your child to discuss the Big Write with you so they are full of ideas for the session! You can find details on the Big Write on our homework page.
