Yr 3 weekly blog 24.9.21

Date: 23rd Sep 2021 @ 5:08pm


Another week gone already! It really seems like the days are flying by in Year 3 at the moment, especially now we are well and truly getting stuck into our Harvest service preparations. The children will be visiting church next Tuesday to meet with Reverend Matt and to put the finishing touches to our presentation. We have been rehearsing our lines with gusto at every opportunity. If your child has a speaking part they will have come home with a prayer or a few words to practice. Please encourage them to read their words aloud with plenty of expression. We hope to fill the church with our glorious and confident children’s voices.

Hopefully everyone now has a torch in school. We have been harnessing the unseasonably sunny September weather in our work on shadows. Ask your child the question, “How is a shadow formed?”

Now we have settled into more of a routine in class the children are working extremely hard with very little ‘down time’. The calories they are burning as their brains discover new things is evident. Many of them are asking when it is break time and complaining that they are hungry. Can we remind everyone of the benefits of a healthy snack? Even if the children are not used to having a mid-morning snack at home could we please ask you to consider sending them to school with a simple piece of fruit, vegetable, cheese or crackers that they can enjoy at breaktime.  The children then return to class refreshed and refuelled ready to tackle another few lessons before lunch.  Unfortunately, we cannot allow the children to have any type of cereal bar at playtimes due to the fact that we have a number of children with severe nut allergies in school.

Another plea… pencils and red pens!  We aren’t exactly sure where they are all going, maybe the children are munching on them at snack time but we have emptied our emergency supply of writing pencils and red biros replenishing the children’s pencil cases. If you have any lying around at home could you please send your child in with an additional set. Many thanks!
