A Very Old Rock!!!!!

Since we have been looking at rocks in Science, Lillie brought in a very interesting old rock to look at, her Grandad found it 30 years ago in a river. He took it to the Leeds Museum to be dated and he found out it was 290 million years old, yes I haven't got it wrong, it really was 290 million years old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I found it totally amazing and interesting and could not believe I had held something so old, the rest of Year 3 found it amazing too. Below are some pictures of the rock and a copy of the wording that was written in the museum analysis.
The Museum Analysis;
Found; 25th March 1981
In a stream on a farm
Report;
This is the root of a tree fern which lived during the Coal Measure Times, in the Carboniferous period about 290 million years ago. It is called STIGMARIA FICOIDES. The small pits on the surface are where rootlets where attached to the main root. You can also see the vascular bundle at the centre of the main root.

Half Termly Letter

Dear Parent/Guardian,
Welcome back, I hope you all had a relaxing break.

Here are some reminders of dates and topics for this coming half term.

P.E. Monday and Thursday afternoons, children will need indoor kits and suitable footwear e.g. trainers or pumps.

Spellings New spellings will be given every Monday and tests will be on the Friday afternoon of the same week, the spellings given are a focus on particular word rules e.g. suffixes, prefixes, singular, plural rather than the actual words. So when practicing them please emphasise the rule e.g. adding -ing.

Homework Homework is the learning logs, a new learning target will be put into the books every fortnight and your child will have 2 weeks to fill the 2 pages with anything they think relates to the learning target, the deadline date will be at the bottom of the target.I would be very grateful if you could encourage your child to complete every piece of homework and to hand it in on time. It is essential for your child to get into a routine before they start high school.

Reading Please make sure your child reads their school reading book at home. I would like them to read everyday, and if you could, please, write a small comment about what they have read and sign it in their reading record booklet. We will aim to listen to your child read at school once a week so please ensure your child brings their book and reading record on their designated reading day.

This half term we are continuing our class theme of Celebrity Chefs, so all our subjects will be related to this. We have now chosen countries and are in the process of researching them and with this information we are going to produce a booklet which includes information about the place and food native to it.

Here are some of the activities we will be doing this half term;

Literacy
Performance poetry and report writing.

Maths
As a school we follow the DCFS Mathematics framework and during this half term we will be covering blocks C, D and E unit 2 and also relating maths work to the theme, i.e. weights, measures and money.

Science
Changing state and food related science.

Information Communication Technology (I.C.T.)
Producing an e-booklet related to the theme.

Geography and History
The history, location and information about the chosen countries.

Design Technology (D.T.).

Mr Walls will be teaching Thursday afternoon, teaching R.E., PSHCE and P.E. to cover my PPA time.

Also don’t forget our Year 3 blog which can be found on the homepage of the school website, get blogging!

I am aware that there is a lot of information included in this letter! If any of the information is unclear, or if you have any further queries regarding your child, please do not hesitate to see me.
