Friday was a really exciting day for everyone at Belgrave as it was our 50th Anniversary and we celebrated with Goldfest. Year 3 were out swimming as usual in the morning but got back to a great day of celebration and fun! We had circus skills with Alex in the afternoon after our celebration picnic lunch. It was too hot to go out so we sat in the hall to eat our lunches.

In the evening the children returned to show the dance to their parents and Year 3 did a great job of remembering all of the moves! Then the party began.......

A great day was had by all of the children and it was lovely to see you all and get the chance to chat over the evening. A fantastic end to a fantastic year and a celebration to remember. I wonder if we will all be at the 60th Anniversary celebration?

It is already Week 4 of swimming and the children have been enjoying their Friday monring trips to the Chester City Baths. The staff and the swimming coach have noticed that the children have gained in confidence and stamina and are developing their skills week by week. Swimming is such an important life skill!

Swimming is a statutory part of the national curriculum, just like Maths and English and it is important for all children to be able to swim by the end of primary school.

We try to make the lessons fun for the children with a short play session at the end of each class and you can see in the photograph what a lovely time we had last Friday!




Don't forget Thursday 17th at 6.00pm is the meeting for the Year 3 Residential. I look forward to seeing you all then!

This week in Year 3 we have started our Where My Wellies Take Me topic. We have been looking at the book by Clare and Michael Murporgo and have started to create our own work for our books.

Today we have been thinking about trees and are starting a piecce of work called 'Talking Trees' using information we have found out about trees and writing about our trees using the first person narrative. We imagined we were one of the trees in the woods and wanted to tell people about ourselves. The children created mind maps with all of the trees they knew and then facts they already knew about the trees. We will then use this to help us to create our writing.

In Geography this week we have been looking at the United Kingdom and using our skills in map reading. We looked at human and physical features of the landscape and located key features, such as Big Ben, The River Severn and Durdle Door on our maps.

In Maths we are looking at time until half term. We have been practising the Days of the Week and Months of the year, learning about leap years and why they occur and learning a rhyme to help us remember how many days in each month. Next week we are looking at telling the time to the minute using analogue and digital clocks.Have a look at the following website for some games to practice telling the time, it'd be useful before next week!
