Lights, camera, action...

Next Week

Don't forget you will need assembly costumes in school from Monday. If anyone has a white doctor's lab coat we can borrow, please bring in.
We have been very impressed how well you have learnt your lines and parts. Please keep practising speaking clearly and with volume at home.

On Wednesday am we will perform our assembly to the school and on Thursday at 9.10 to parents and families.

Don't forget Friday 28th  is our occasional day and the school will be closed.

Well done to the children who came to an audition this week, for main parts in the Christmas Play. We were very impressed with the effort you had put in to learn and perform a few lines. We have chosen some parts but there is still plenty of speaking parts to get everyone involved.

In English, we will continue our work on playscripts next week, using fairy tales as our stimlus. Talk through your idea for a 'twisted' fairy tale with a grown up and see what they think.

Have a great weekend.

Next week 

Anti- Bullying week- if you have any letter stencils they may help with an activity we will do in school on Tuesday so please bring them in.

Homework this week is to learn your words for the class assembly and practise the song at home.

We are short on glue sticks. Please bring one in if you have one at home. Remember to put your name on it!

We are planning to have auditions for bigger parts in the Christmas play. If you are a budding actress or would like to sing a solo listen out for further details this week. You can prepare something to perform if you would like. (A reading or a song)

Well done for all you efforts with assessments this week. It has been a lot of sitting in silence completing tests, but we hope you have enjoyed the more creative afternoon activities we have done.

Back to normal lessons next week and in Literacy we will begin looking at playscripts; specifically The Princess and the Pea. Do you have a version of this classic story at home, that you would like to share?

In Maths we will be focusing on the 4 rules of number.

Have a great weekend.

Light at the end of the tunnel.


Next week we will begin thinking about our class assembly. You will have come home today with your script, so pleased start to learn your words.

Here is a link to the song we will be singing,so you can start practising.

It would be great if as many of you as possible could come dressed in Egyptian themed costumes for the assembly and of course you will get to use them again for our Egyptian Day on 9th December.

We will perform the assembly to the school on Wednesday 26th November ( dress rehearsal) and then again to parents and families on Thursday 27th November 9.10am.

Other news

The teachers have enjoyed reading your stories this week related to the story "The Tunnel" by Anthony Browne.

If you want to read any other Anthony Browne books here is a link to show you what other books he has written. Perhaps something to put on your Christmas list!!

Formerly an artist, Anthony Browne's books are full of wonderful details that will keep you fascinated.

Well done to you all for the enthusiasm you have shown in the topics we have been learning about it school. It's lovely to see many of you bringing in things from home to show and finding out about trips you have been on to support your learning.
Next term we will be starting a Geography topic based on the immediate environment around the school. If you have any relatives who have been living in the area along time or know of a neighbour who is particularly knowledgeable on the area, ask them what it was like 30 or 50 years ago around Crabtree Schools?

Next week will be a bit of a 'show us what you can do' week. The teachers are looking for you to showing off all your new skills in reading, writing and maths in some planned tests.

Have a lovely weekend.

We hope you get to enjoy some fireworks but remember to stay safe.

The Year 3 teachers.
