21.10.22 - Half-Term Sponsored Read

To celebrate and encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, we are running a sponsored read over half term 22/10/22-30/10/22. 
The project is being organised in conjunction with our local Usborne Partner, and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our school. In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne will also donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to the school. So, for every £600 raised, we will get an extra £360 in FREE Usborne books! 
We always aim to beat our last year’s target which was £1000 in sponsor money with Usborne donating an additional £600 of books for free if our target is met. This will give us a total of £1600 to spend on new books and resources for our children. 
Please help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read books, comics, magazines, newspapers, menus, websites, recipes, poems, leaflets, instructions – anything with words!  For younger children in EYFS they can listen to the adult read their books and that still counts. 
The class who have the most recorded minutes will win an extra free book and a small treat! All children will receive a certificate for taking part. 
If you are able to support our sponsored read, please find on the reverse a sponsorship form and an extra reading log for your child if they wish to use it to record their reading.  Please send any money in a named envelope with the class name and the amount raised alongside the forms by Friday 4th November.

Fantastic scenes at swimming this week! So many discarded arm bands meaning lots of our children have made phenomenal progress with their confidence and skills! We are extrememly proud!


Monday 10th October

Congratulations to these LEGENDS on winning our first 3LP certificates of achievement on Friday! They are all completely exceptional in their own way and deserve their awards for a range of accomplishments including reading, handwriting and resilience! Well done, boys!

We also had photo day last week, it was fantastic to see so many smart children smiling for their photographs. Please remember to return chistmas card purchase forms by Thursday 13th October if you would like your child's design created into any of the options shared on the form.

We have seen some impressive writing in our 'Villains' English topic this week - a big part of our focus was using vocabulary mats and thesauruses to extend our writing. Science has led us to delve into the formation of rocks and soon we'll be looking at fossils and linking it to our work on The Stone Age in History.

Friday 30th September

Please head to 3VT's webpage to find this week's 10 Minute Write homework. The downloads section on our 3LP page has been glitchy today. We did a practise write earlier but there are still two writes to go to complete homework for this week!

Monday 26th September

The children have had a wonderful day celebrating everything European Languages! Congratulations to our class winner for their costume representing the Czech Republic! We hope everyone enjoyed their French themed snacks this morning and thank you to all who shared their outfits and European languages (and languages further afield) spoken at home with their families.

Last week's first '10 Minute Write' homework of the half term was a huge success - it was clear a great deal of effort went into completing these, alongside the place value Maths homework which was fantastic to see.

Today, we also discussed in great detail the use of our new reading record resource 'Padlet' that the children will hopefully be eager to start using. The class link for our page can be found in an email sent home today.

We look forward to an exciting weekend ahead focusing on 'Villains' in our writing topic, considering our History key question 'How different did life become in the stone age when man started to farm?' and looking at using water colours in Art.


Monday 19th September

We are beginning to familiarise ourselves with the new routines in the juniors and had a super week last week delving into our new topics. We are learning about place value in Maths and are enjoying our History topic - The Stone Age. So far we have looked at familiar times in history on a timeline and have realised that the Stone Age was a long time before anyone built an army or invented simple machines!

This week's English homework is focusing on ‘10 Minute Writes’ (at the front of their books) and their Maths homework will be found, stuck in, in the back of their orange books.

Don't forget curriculum evening this week - Wednesday at 6pm!


Friday 8th September 2022

Today we spent some time talking and understanding a little more about the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Year 3LP and Year 3VT watched a Newsround programme dedicated to the story and asked/answered questions we had afterwards.

Spellings have been uploaded to the children's Spelling Shed accounts today and we ask they practice as much as possible in time for their test next Friday. We have carried out a short assessment to allocate spellings, however, groupings will continue to be monitored moving forward. The children will bring home a paper copy of their spellings at the back of their 10 Minute Write books (more information on that starting next week). If you have any queries or need a reminder of logins, please email year3lp@oldfield-brow.com 

On Tuesday next week, the children will begin swimming lessons as part of the Year 3 P.E curriculum. Please come to school in normal school uniform. Each child will need a towel and swimming costume/trunks (no board shorts are permitted). Goggles/hairbrushes are optional and swimming hats/arm bands/floats will be provided. PLEASE can children with long hair tie it up in a bun/plaits, to help with putting on hats before and changing times after, their lesson.

It has been wonderful to get to know our new class this week and we are looking forward to working hard and enjoying our learning as we navigate our way through the first year of the juniors!

Enjoy a lovely weekend,

Miss Pritchard and Mrs Smith

Wednesday 7th September 2022

What a super settling in day our new Year 3s have had! We have been learning about our new routines, getting to know one another and looking at our expectations for the months ahead.

The biggest change to the children's routine today was their later lunch time. Some became hungry before lunch time so in an effort to hopefully combat this in the future, please send your child in with a healthy snack for morning break - we are unfortunately unable to provide fruit for all in the same manner as KS1. 

If you have any questions moving forward, please email year3lp@oldfield-brow.com
