Year 3 Class - 3G - Spring - 2017 -2018

Welcome to Class 3G
Our Teacher is Mr Greaves and our teaching assistant is Miss Mills.
We're in the Spring term now, lots of hard but fun work ahead!
Some important notes:
Our PE lessons are on Tuesday
Our Dance lessons are on Friday
Homework goes out on a Monday and is due back on the Friday
Parents: Please try to read at home with your child every night, even for just 5-10minutes and then sign their home reading record. It really does make a massive difference to their progression in reading and other subjects!
Home reading in 3G
We do lots of reading in Year 3, but we can always do more (plus it's fun too!)
We receive two Dojo points every time we read at home, get our home reading book signed by an adult and bring it back into school. That's ten points every week! If we manage to do this for a whole week, we also receive a bookmark!
There are 16 bookmarks to collect. Can you collect them all?
Music - Garageband
Our new Music topic makes use of the Garageband app on the iPads. We've listened to 'Dance with me tonight' by Olly Murs and figured out the main guitar chords. Now we're starting to play the chords on the app ourselves, following a tempo and soon we'll be getting a bit more creative by adding elements to our piece...
Coding - Codestudio
We're really hitting the computing this half term! We're using Codestudio to continue working through the online course on programing, learning how to: sequence a series of coding instructions, set up repeating loops of code and how to debug our coding. It's meant to be tricky stuff, but we're working hard and learning fast!
Science - Fossils
Our Science topic of Rocks and Soils led us to look at different rock types. One of those types is called sedimentary. These rocks have an amazing secret; you can find dinosaur fossils in them because of how they are formed - layer by layer. So, naturally, we set about making our own cast fossils of ancient sea shells. They turned out really well!
