They say time flies when you are having fun and as quickly as we celebrated the new year then we are starting our second spring term!
We enjoyed a great first term and the whole class really enjoyed exploring Our Moving Earth, including doing plate tectonics with Oreo cookies and being paleontologists by extracting chocolate chips from cookies. (Lots of biscuits were eaten!)
This term brings lots of different areas that we will be focusing on during the next six weeks. In science we start to explore plants, what they are, how they grow and why they are so important to us. We will continue exploring weights and capacity in Maths before looking at time, geometry and addition and subtraction.
In the first week back we have our first Y3 school trip to the brilliant Natural History Museum in London on Friday the 28th of February. This will allow the children to apply their learnings from "Our Moving Earth" and see the fantastic exhibits and samples that the Museum has to really complete the picture.
As always if you should have any queries, questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Lynn via reception or in person after school.

Physical Education for this term is on a Monday and Thursday, so your children will need their named PE kit for these days.
Spellings are every week on Friday so children need to have practiced their spellings and bring in their folder by Friday at the latest.
