A busy but enjoyable week!

It has been a busy and exciting week for Year 3 this week! On Monday, we had a wonderful awards assembly to celebrate the children’s achievements this academic year. Well done to Alex Russell and Adam McCarthy for winning the Pupil Voice award, Gracie Coates for winning the music award and Hardie Roberts for winning the art award. All the children have worked hard this year and even if they did not win an award, they should all be proud of their achievements. We are all winners!

Tuesday evening was Crabtree Junior’s opening evening and all the classrooms looked stunning! Well done to all the children, they have worked hard to create some beautiful pieces of writing, art work, clay models and photo frames which were displayed that evening. Thank you for all those who attended and a big thank you to Year 3 who sang ‘Let it Go’ beautifully that evening!

This Friday will be Year 3’s final P.E lesson so P.E kits, trainers and football boots can go home from then onwards.

This week there is no homework or spellings but next Wednesday we will be sending home some Geography homework which will be expected back in September by their new teacher.

School will finish for summer next Wednesday at 2pm.

It has been a wonderful and enjoyable year and on behalf of all the Year 3 team, we would like to thank you for all your support over the year.

We hope you have an enjoyable and restful summer!

We have had lots of fun this week in Literacy, looking at persuasive writing through the context of advertising. The children have had some great ideas for slogans and catchphrases and have even made their own TV advert! We certainly have some budding marketing professionals in Year 3.

We will continue the theme next week and the children will be writing persuasive letters to parents. Watch this space!

In Science we have been investigating the magnetism of different materials. Attached here is a clip for making a magnet or a compass. It would be great if anyone could have a go over the weekend and let us know if they were able to get any of these to work.

Just to remind you it will be the last swimming lesson on Monday. Two children in Rowan have lots some of their belongings. Ollie Clarke managed to come back in the wrong pair of school shorts. His pair were named, so could please check your washing piles and check that they haven't got mixed up with your child's?
William West has lost swimming trunks and goggles, which were also named. We do regularly remind the children to put all their clothes in their bags when changing, but could we ask that at the very least on swimming days all items are named to help avoid confusion.

Next week looks set to be fun with sport's day on Wednesday. We hope that some of you will be able to cheer the children on in the afternoon events. Also, on Thursday  there will be a chance to meet next year's teacher!!

We will also be fitting in the construction of a photograph frame for our DT project. Could the children bring in a favourite photograph to place in their frame for Thursday next week please?

Have a great weekend
