Friday 6th January 2017 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome back to school.

We began this term, dipping back into our Whatever the Weather topic, looking at weather forecasting and the season of winter.  We thought about the types of weather we experience during the winter and how the weather forecasts help us to prepare.  We enjoyed some winter poems through our guided reading and made bird cakes to look after those birds that stay with us through the cold winter months, writing instructions so that others could make one too.

We thought about winter being the season of coughs and colds and learnt the "Catch it, Bin it, Kill it!" slogan to help us to reduce the spread of coughs and colds when we cough and sneeze.

We ended the week presenting our own weather forecasts and you wouldn't believe how varied the weather across the UK could be!


Next week, we begin our new topic "And they lived happily ever after" with the very exciting spark of a visit to the theatre to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

About Me

Name: Year 3

We have begun our new topic of Chocolate with gusto in Year 3. We are learning the history of chocolate and about its origins.

The children are enjoying discovering characters in our story, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, and imagining their own inventions to be considered by Willy Wonka!
