More certificates today for times tables and great scores in our end of unit Science test on Light.

Lots to celebrate at the end of last week. Lots of children moved up to their next times table, having scored 12/12 on their previous three tests. Great work!

There were also lots of Cypress class certificates for colourful and informative posters on the dangers of UV light. They are now on display in the classroom.

We've had a great first half term and the children have been keen and hardworking. They have just produced some fantastic newspaper reports on the Viking invasion of Lindisfarne.

Now enjoy a well earned week off!

We have been doing some fantastic work on 3 digit numbers in maths since the start of term. Today we had a break from that and did lots of measuring length activities.

In Science we have been learning about reflection and today used mirrors to write secret messages and to follow a wriggly line on the floor, backwards. 

w/c 7th September 2020

Welcome to Year 3 Cypress Class

All the children have made a fantastic start to the year. Most are arriving on time and in the correct uniform and have shown a positive attitude to their learning. 

We have been focusing on 3 digit numbers in Maths and looking at a variety of fables in English. We have started our topic of Light in Science and have some homework to do on light sources this week. In topic, we have also started learning about the vikings. Keep up the good work, Year 3!
