What an amazing week! It has been STEM week, where we have taken part in an amazing school-wide project exploring what would be needed to take the school to Mars. In Year 3, we explored the need to grow crops to feed everybody, including learning what nutrition  different plants provide, planning an allotment plot and designing a growing structure model, making it out of art straws.

The next two weeks will include a focus on raising money for NSPCC as well as supporting sports relief. Someone from the NSPCC will talk to the school about the importance of speaking to an adult when they are sad or if something has happened that they are not happy about. On Friday 16th, Year 3 will be having a 'Supermoverthon' to raise money. The children will be moving non-stop to dances on the bbc website. A letter will be sent home with all the details shortly. Another exciting event on Friday is the Year 3 assembly. Rehearsals have gone well and the children can't wait to share their learning with you!

It is world book day on Thursday. We can all come in dresses as a character from a book and in Year 3 we will be sharing out favourite books with each other, so the children need to bring in their favourite book from home. We will also be writing a diary extract through the eyes of the main character in their book, plus we will be having a book quiz.
