Its Week 3 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

In Y3 this week we have been using our knowledge of rocks to create an information text. In writing we have been looking at the purpose and features of an information text. In maths we have been continuing our addition and subtractions, using different methods to solve problems. In reading and science we have been investigating light and experimented using torches and mirrors to see how light reflects from different surfaces. We have been using an atlas in geography to discover more about the UK and finding out about mountains, rivers and national parks. Y3 have also been enjoying their after school clubs this week doing sports, board games and learning to play the keyboard.

Bug Club information and guide for parents

Dear Parent or Carer,

Our school is using a reading system called Bug Club.  Please click here to view parents guide to access Bug Club

What is Bug Club?

Bug Club is a levelled reading scheme, which ensures that your child has access to books at their level. All of the books are available online and each child has their own personalised homepage.

Using Bug Club

To access Bug Club online then go to the website:

www.bugclub.co.uk

The school ID is nrsg

Each child will be allocated their own unique username and password. If your child loses theirs, please ask for a replacement.

Reading a book online

Your child is allocated a book according to their reading level. These books will appear in the ‘My Stuff’ area on their homepage. Throughout the books there are questions for your child to answer based on the book that they are reading. Teachers will be able to see your child’s response through the teacher site. To answer a question just click on the bug icon.

When your child has answered the questions in a book, they will earn coins. These coins can then be used to buy ‘a reward’ from the reward scheme.

Teachers will be able to allocate more books when your child is running low in their account.

How to help your child

  1. Find time to sit with your child so that you can share the online books with your child.
  2. Talk to your child about the book that they are reading. Look at the front cover and talk about what the book might be about.
  3. Listen to book together and help your child to follow the words. This can be done my clicking on the speaker icon.
  4. After listening to the book get the child to read the book to you.
  5. Re-read the book again if needed so that they can read the book fluently before moving on to the next book.
  6. Aim to read two books a week so that quality time can be spent reading each book.

Remember: books should be read more than once so that your child can become fluent readers.

If you need help

If you need any help with Bug Club, please ask your child’s class teacher.

Its Week 2 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

In reading and writing this week we have continued to explore the world of fairy tales but with a twist. We have planned and written our own twisted fairy tales changing around the heroes and the villains and thinking about the theme good vs evil. In maths we have been adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers using column method. In geography we have started our unit on the UK, using atlases to look up where different cities are. In science we have been investigating light, what light is and which objects are emitters and reflectors of light. In music we have been using glockenspiels and rhythm grids to compose our own music.

Its Week 1 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

This week we have been looking at the story of Hansel and Gretel and using expanded noun phrases to make our writing descriptive and exciting to read. In reading, we discussed how the different characters of the story are feeling at different times and using evidence to support our answers. In maths, we have been using place value to add 2 digit and 3 digit numbers. We have been really interested in developing our research skills in history and DT finding facts about Stonehenge. And in science we have started to learn about light and how some surfaces reflect light.
