Year 3 - Chestnut 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Chestnut's class page!
This year we are looking forward to many interesting topics. This half term we will be exploring the world of Potions.The Potions topic will have a Science theme and will allow the children to imagine the wondereful, magic world of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' which is the text they will be reading.
Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or sticky goo. Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties. Now scientists, beware. There are some powerful and deadly potions out there, dangerous, unpredictable or tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet.) Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard’s Potions class. Feeling sleepy? That orange juice did taste a little strange...
P.E days: Wednesday and Friday. Please could children keep a drawstring bag containing their P.E. kit in school so they can change into their P.E. kit on the relevant days.
Make sure that children come in with their library books if they have taken them home.
Spelling book and Homework books must be in bags on Wednesdays.
Home learning expectations
Homework and Spelling day: Wednesday
Chestnut are practicing our 3 and 4 times tables. Practice in this are will be very useful. Purple Mash is a great resource to help you with this. Any problems with this let Mr Jones know.
It is always paramount that Children have an enjoyment of reading. Children should be read to and encouraged to read independantly. Children should be encouraged to read a variety of genres inculding non-fiction.

At the end of last half term, Chestnut had an amazing visitor come in! He was from history squad and he taught us lots of intersting things about the Anglo-Saxons. Chestnut were able to handle some historic weapons and attempt to carry a humungous shield (Even Mr Jones struggled). It was a fabulous day and it was amazing to see the joy on the childrens faces!
