It has been fantastic to see the children buzzing with excitement throughout Science Week. In assembly, Dr Thompson spoke about what the job of a meteorologist involves. Following this, the children were fascinated by our visit from a microbiologist, Mrs Smart who demonstrated just how quickly germs can spread from one person to another. A group of children covered their hands in glitter and carried out everyday tasks including sharing pens and shaking hands. It highlighted just how important it is for everyone to wash their hands thoroughly. On Wednesday, Mrs Smart came back to each class and took a sample from two children’s hands back to the laboratory. We are looking forward to finding out about the germs that have grown!

Helping at Home
On a Thursday your child will bring home a home learning task related to something they have been learning during the week. This needs to be returned the following Tuesday.
Each week, your child will be given spellings on a Monday, to be tested on a Friday. Your child will be working on either Year 1/2 or Year 3/4 common exception words, alongside the Year 3 National Curriculum words.
This term, you will be given multiplication tables to learn, to be tested each week. Below are some links to help you with your tables:
There are many times table songs on YouTube which can help children learn them off by heart.
Your child will be given a log in for Times Table Rockstars, which is a fun way to memories the tables and compete with their friends. https://ttrockstars.com/login
They will also be given a log in for RM Easimaths, where they can work through different mathematical questions and problems. https://www.rmeasimaths.com/
Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
