Welcome to Y3AG
We hope you had a lovely Easter and enjoyed all the chocolate and other goodies that accompany the Easter holiday!
Gods and Mortals
This half term our class book is “Percy Jackson and the lightning thief” by Rick Riordan, and we will also be looking at the Groovy Greeks by Terry Deary. As part of the topic we will be creating our own Greek island, plagued by mythical creatures. We will be exploring myths and legends in English, and creating our own myth based on the island and creature we have created. In PE we will be practicing athletics to get ready for sports day, and in History we will be looking at the influence the Greeks have had on modern times. Hopefully we will also have a Greek workshop with some of the actors from the popular Horrible Histories tv show coming into school, and towards the end of the term we are hoping to have a Greek Day!
Monday afternoon is our library slot and children will have time to change their library books at this point. If they wish to change their book at any other time during the week, then school librarians are on hand to help your child with this during break and lunch times. We also ask that children read as often as they can at home – this does not need for extended periods, but five or ten minutes whenever possible, and sign their diary every time you do read with them. We will also be monitoring reading diaries to help keep track of how many books your child reads and how often they read each week.
Your child will participate in 2 PE lessons per week (weather permitting) and these take place on a Thursday and Friday afternoon. If the forecast for the afternoon is rain, we will do this in the morning. We would really appreciate it if your child could bring their PE kit to school on Monday and take it home on Friday then it will save any confusion if for any reason the PE times change due to unforeseen circumstances.
Thank you for your continued support.
Miss Gough, Mr England and Miss Jackson.
