Year 3

The Federation has received a large box of skipping ropes.  Skipping is great for fitness, co-ordination and team work.  Year 3 are learning to: skip forwards, skip backwards, skip with a double bounce, skip with a single bounce, skip with a 1-2 step and skip whilst running.  We were exhausted after our lesson!  We also had a go at giant rope skipping which requires perfect timing.

We finished our Ancient Britons topic with the Iron Age.  Here is our display, featuring: Making bread, wattle fences, Stone Henge, Iron Age houses, Iron Age helmets, Boudicca's letter to Emperor Nero and replica shields.



Year 3 enjoyed a privileged experience, to sing with The Choir of King's Chapel Cambridge at the Primary School's Carol Service.  Poppy and Sophia also represented Trumpington Meadows by reading excerpts from the Christmas Story.

Every week your child will be be sent home with an individualised spelling sheet and times table practise.  Please encourage your child to practise these.  These will normally be sent home on a Friday and should come back the following Wednesday.  We will have a short spelling and times tables test every week.

Our homework tasks are below (they're coming).   Your child should aim to get at least 10 homework house points per half term.  These should be returned to school anytime before the end of term.
