Welcome to Year 3 and Lower Key Stage Two! 

Garnet class are looking forward towards a fun packed summer half term which encompasses engaging, creative learning along with a much awaited trip: Whipsnade Zoo trip. 

This half term, our overarching topic is 'Creating a Better World'. In our Topic unit, we will be focusing on 'Flying Food Airways', a study in which the children will investigate fruits and vegetables from around the world and research where certain fruits and vegetables come from. 

Please see the attached link to find out about all we have planned this half term: 

Our PE days this half term are Mondays and Tuesdays, so children are able to come into school on those days in their school PE kit. 

Our spelling tests will take place on Friday. The children will receive their spellings homework every Friday and it is to be returned completed by the following Friday. The Maths and English homework will continue to be set up on Atom Learning platform. The homework will be given on a Wednesday and it is expected to be completed until the following Wednesday. Please ensure you child is logging into his/her account and completes their task weekly. 

We encourage children to read daily in school as well as at home. Please continue to support and encourage your child to read and once he/she has read with an adult we would like a parent/carer to sign the record. Every child should read 5 times a week with an adult.

Please ensure that your child comes to school every day with the following items:

A water bottle

Reading Book

Reading Record

A suitable coat (weather appropriate).

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for your continuous  support and looking forward to a great half term together.

As Garnet Class learned all about Stone Age last term, we managed to organize a workshop all about this period of time for the human history. The children had a full day experience of what Stone Age might have been and enjoyed every single activity. It was so much fun! Have a look at our pictures:
