Palace Wood

Primary School

From little acorns, mighty oaks grow

Year 3

We are very pleased that the children are settling into Year 3 so nicely.  They already know their way around the Oaks and have learnt new routines.

Just a handful of reminders:

PE kit will be needed on Mondays and Tuesdays.  As several children have had their ears pierced please ensure that they know how to remove their earings or that you do this before school on PE days.

Swimming will take place in term 2. Please ensure your children bring their swimming kit to school with them on a Monday morning.

Homework is set on a Friday (English) or Monday (Maths) and returned on a Wednesday (English) or Friday (Maths).

Contact books are a fantastic way of celebrating their reading achievements.  We would like to ensure all children receive all the rewards they deserve so please ensure they have their books on a Friday for the early morning check.  We are encouraging childen to place money and notes in the hungry box or to give teachers messages that are about learning.


Both classes have enjoyed the school trip to Kent Life which bought to life thier understanding of The Stone Age.  The children met a Stone Age cave man and experienced how difficult it was to ground grain to make flour. They have been enjoying the story of The Stone Age Boy.  Children have created information books based on thier knowledge of the Stone Age.


During maths we have focused on place value and are moving onto learning the formal methods of addition and subtraction.
