Week Beginning 11 April 2016

Please label all school uniform, snack boxes and water bottle to avoid items getting lost in school. Every child needs to have a water bottle to bring in each day. No glass containers please.

In the summer term, please ensure children wear sun hats on hot days to protect them when playing outside.

Year 3 will be basing our work around “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory “by Roald Dahl, It would be fantastic if you could support the children out of school by helping them to read the book and/or watch the film to get them all ready for learning in class!

Trip to Zotters Chocolate Factory Tuesday 12 April.

ECA/BISCAP/BISS Lions Swimming start Monday 11 April.


This week we will be looking at the features of an adventure story, exploring what happened inside some of the key rooms in the factory, including the inventing room, nut room, television room and chocolate room. We will then be applying this knowledge by planning our own adventure for a character of our own creation.


This week the children will add and subtract numbers with up to three digits, using the efficient written methods of columnar addition and subtraction. They will also cover estimating and using inverse operations to check answers.



The children will be focusing on history over the next three weeks. They will be researching the history of chocolate using their ICT skills and answering the big question: “Who was Hernan Cortes?”


Linked to our Themed Learning, the children will be thinking about the lives of people living in other places and times, and people with different values and customs.
