Summer 2 Week 6


This week was Sports Day. Everyone did a fantastic job and it was lovely to see lots of parents staying to enjoy the picnic. 

Summer 2 Week 5


Over the last few weeks we have been lucky enough to receive 3 sets of Book Trust books. It was lovely to see how excited everyone got opening their packages and seeing all the lovely books and colouring pencils. 

Summer 2 - Week 2


This week it has been a scorcher!! 


Well done to everybody in Chipmunk for working so hard this week despite it being so hot in the class. We were very lucky to be able to spend most afternoons in the shade outside doing work instead of inside the stuffy classroom. 


This week we sat our final quizzes of Year 3 and everybody did fantastically - well done!


In History this week, we learnt about how Howard Carter discovered King Tutankhamun's tomb. In Science we created a poster on how to stay safe in the sun and to protect ourselves from UV light. 


On Friday it was Pyjamama day to promote the charity BookTrust. We did lots of fun activities to celebrate the day. 


I hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy the summer fair tomorrow!

Summer 2 - Week 1


What a great first week back we have had!


We have started our new English topic on the Egyptian Cinderella. Over the next few weeks we will be learning how to write diary entries to portray how the different characters are feeling in the book. 


In Science we are learning all about light for our final half term topic. This week we learnt all about artificial and natural light. 


In History this week we have started learning about The Ancient Egyptians. We were very lucky to look at lots of Egyptian artefacts from Chertsey museum. The whole of Year 3 went into the gym to learn about different artefacts found. 


Finally, in Art we tea stained our books and drew different Egyptian symbols and patterns.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Summer 1 - Week 6 


A lovely end to a busy half term!  Our walk to the river was just fantastic, the children behaved impeccably and were able to sit down and look at the River Thames in detail, they then drew sketch maps, labelling the key features they saw.  We then used these sketch maps to inspire our watercolour paintings.


In maths we have been looking at money, adding subtracting money and knowing the value of notes and coins. We would really like it if the children were able to have some practical experience over the half term holidays ready to put their skills to the test in a real life context. We will be setting up a shop on the first day back!


Our writing has culminated in the children writing a newspaper report all about the coronation.  We are very impressed with the end results, we have got some great headlines and interesting information. We have some budding journalists in our year group!


I have uploaded our curriculum map for the final half term of the year - please do feel free to encourage the children to research all things Egyptian. 


I hope you have a restful and sunny half term break!


Kindest regards

Miss Wallace

Summer 1 - Week 5 


This week in Maths we have done a short unit on fractions, focussing on adding and subtracting. Next week we will be starting our unit on money. 


In English we have been continuing to learn about newspaper articles. We have done some role play pretending we were journalists and focussing on writing speech correctly. 


We have finished our science unit on the water cycle. This will help us next week when we go on the river walk. 


In DT this week we made pouches for little devices called micro:bits. The class enjoyed designing and creating their pouches.


I hope you all have a lovely weekend, one week to go!

Summer 1 - Week 4 


It was lovely to be back in school all together again - I do hope you enjoyed reading the children's best bits about Sayers Croft that they should taken home with them. We spent some time talking about what their favourite memories were then spent some time writing about their favourite memories!


This week in Maths  we have completed our unit learning about measurement - and we moved on to our second unit on fractions - we will be looking at adding then subtracting fractions then will move on to fractions of amounts.


For the remainder of the half term Chipmunk class are training to be journalists - we aim to write a newspaper report and spent the week in both guided reading and English looking at features of newspapers - ask the children to tell you what the five W's stand for!


We spent some time this week looking at the History of the River Thames and the importance of the Thames Barrier, we discovered many important events - we are very much looking forward to our walk to the river in a couple of weeks.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Summer 1 Week 3 - Sayers Croft Week 


A fantastic week had by all! We will be updating with a full run down of events and asking some of the children to contribute next week - the highlights for me were getting to know the children outside of a classroom environment and seeing great teamwork. Some children were so kind to others and every single one of them made us incredibly proud to be their teachers.


Pictures have started to be uploaded under the Sayers Croft part of the page - there are a few more to go!


I hope everyone has caught up on a bit of sleep and I am very much looking forward to seeing all the children back in school next week.


Kindest regards

Summer 1 - Week 2 


What a fun week!

The football workshop on Tuesday was a enjoyed by all - the children learned some fantastic tricks and watched in awe as our visitor delivered a really exciting assembly.


In addition to this we had a company called IRock visit - I hope you saw the letter sent home with the children. They were really engaged with this and some children even got to perform in front of their peers.


We also had the amazing PTA run the Guinness world record event - they really made a huge effort to make it fun for the children and all of the Chipmunk children participated.


In our learning this week we have continued looking at measurement - capacity and volume and looking at equivalent capacity and volume.  


The children have produced some wonderful poetry which we will display on the windows for you to enjoy on our return from Sayers Croft.


We have mapped the Rivers of the UK in Geography finding out the smallest river and answered some challenging questions using research skills and map work. In science we explored the water cycle further and drew a scientific diagram to explain the different stages water goes through on our planet.


In our RSHE lessons we are exploring relationships, how we can resolve conflict and how to treat everyone with kindness. This is something that we as a team feel very strongly about and talk about often. 


We are very much looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!


Kind regards

Year 3 team

Summer 1 - Week 1 


Welcome back to our Year 3 family ! We have had a great start to the term - it has been clear to see that lots of the children have done  research over the holidays and have started off our new topic with some really good knowledge - ask the children how many rivers there are in the world - they should be able to tell you! 


In English we have had a lovely week of immersing ourselves in Poetry. We will be continuing with this next week, and the children will be producing their own water themed shape poem.


In Maths we have looked at mass, comparing mass and using scale to help us. We have learned how many grams there are in a kilogram, this is very important when making comparisons. Next week we move on to adding mass, then we will look at volume.


Our Geography and Science units looking at the water cycle and rivers has really hooked the children (not least the catchy song we are learning!) We have started with an experiment creating our own water cycle in a bottle. In Geography we have explored the main features of a river from source to mouth. We move on next week to mapping the UK's rivers.


Next week we have a number of extra activities which will be great fun - we have a football skills workshop in addition to PE on Tuesday. On Friday we have our Guinness Record attempt in the morning and some special visitors leading a music assembly in the afternoon.
