500 Marble Reward tomorrow

Wow! The year has rushed by and we are in the final week.

We said goodbye to Samuel on Tuesday and will be saying goodbye to everyone else on Friday.

Tomorrow afternoon, Thursday 24th, we will have our final 500 marble reward for Y3. Come in your own clothes.

Party food will be provided by school.

Also please remember to bring a large plastic bag to school to put artwork, record of achievement and Egyptian books.

This week's homework is to design and make a poster to advertise your busking day act (busking day will be on Tuesday 22nd June and Y3 will performing from 10:00 - 10:30).

Please spell all of these words correctly if you use them in your poster:


Please make sure you tell the poster reader about where and when you will be performing.

It might be a good idea to draw a map of the walkway and the hardcourt to show exactly where you will be.

400 marble reward

Well done to 3W for reaching 400 marbles!
Each child received a marble for their reading during book week and this pushed the total past 400.

We will be having a classpartyDVDcombination reward from 1:30 - 2:30 on Thursday 17th June.

We will spend some of the hour watching a DVD and some of the hour playing games and eating nice snacks...but we will need children in 3W to bring the snacks.

You can also wear your own clothes for the day, to celebrate reaching 400 marbles.

Reading minutes challenge - Day 1

Our reading minutes challenge started yesterday and today we have collected in the minutes.

Well done to Bubblegush group (what an amazing group name too!) for reading the magnificent total of 208 minutes yesterday. All 4 members (Melanie, Toby, Joe and Annabel) of the group:

  • read
  • wrote down their reading minutes
  • brought their sheet to school

Not far behind is The Beast Children with 175 minutes.

Ahead so far in the individual challenge is Seb on the page turning total of 101 minutes!

Have a look here for the scores.

How many minutes did 3W read altogether on Monday?

Parents, please remind your child to bring in the reading minutes sheet every day this week, with minutes written down and a signature from you (if possible) to "certify" the minutes.

Mymaths - coordinates homework

Tonight's homework for maths is the Mymaths coordinates activity. It should be completed by next Monday, 14th June.

Reading minutes

I gave out the reading minutes record sheets today and will start to add the information to the class spreadsheet tomorrow.


You must record your reading on the record sheet.
You must bring the record sheet to class every day so that reading minutes can be added to the class spreadsheet.
When reading at home, try to get an adult to sign for the minutes you read.

You will need to have a reading book in class - either a school book or a home book - so that you can Drop Everything And Read.

Today was great, with lovely, silent, enjoyable reading going on in class.

Keep it up at home!

Do you have any square pants?

For Y3 book day on 11th June, you could come as Spongebob Square Pants...if you have some square pants!

Come dressed as your favourite book character.

If you want to come with a few simple props, then that's fine.

If you want to make a fancy costume, that's fine too.

You could come as Charlie from the books of Roald Dahl...

You could come as Wally and dress in red and white striped clothes.

There will also be an individual and a team reading minutes challenge...details to come soon.

Egyptian Day

Thanks to Rachel for these photos...I was really pleased to see you learning and having fun.
Great costumes...well done for looking very authentic!
What material would the Egyptians have used to make their clothes?
How would they have made it?
