Year 3 visit to Queen Mary's College Science Department (November 2017)
Year 3 visited QMC to carry out scientific investigations to help them learn about magnetism and forces. There were lots of fun experiments which enabled them to use different magnets and think about how they could be used in real life. Also, they looked into how different forces effect magnets and other materials.
Each week we will set 3 home learning tasks for the children. One will be an English piece, another will be a Maths activity and the final piece will be spellings that the children will need to learn and practise. We also recommend you listen to your child read for at least 10 minutes 3 times a week, when possible, asking them questions about what they have read. The reading records are a useful way to share with the teacher when reading at home has taken place. Children can also record on these when they have read independently.
English and spelling home learning will be set on a Wednesday and Maths on a Thursday. All home learning will then need to be returned the following Monday. As we are trying to develop independence of the children it will their responsibility to hand in their home learning tasks on time. If your child forgets to take their home learning home it can be accessed on the separate homework pages. Should you have a problem please speak to a member of our team.
Each week the children will have two sessions of PE - one indoor session and one outdoor session. As ever we ask that children have their PE kits in school from Monday and take them home on a Friday. We ask this as although our usual PE days are a Wednesday and Thursday, sometimes the days can change depending on the weather or to fit around other events in school. Please ensure all items are named! For more information about PE kits please see our school uniform section.
