One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News 23/2/24

What a fab start Year 3 have had to Term 4! Let's have a look at what we have been up to this week.


This week in English, we started our new text The Magic Faraway Tree which the children have really enjoyed. In our writing we have been focusing on using adjective, verbs and adverbs to describe characters from the story. We have written a character description on the Saucepan Man and Silky.


Next week, we will be carrying on our character descriptions, focusing on the Angry Pixie.



Our Maths learning this week has seen us fo0cusing on dividing a two digit number by a one digit number using the short division method. The children have really tried to understand this method and have made great progress. We then finished our week having a look at statistics. We created our own bar chart on the classes favourite animals.

Next week, we will be continuing our statistics learning and then moving on to money.



This week, we started our with a PSHE day learning about British Values and Protected Characteristics. Year 3’s protected characteristic was Religion and Belief which means that we should not discriminate against people. We then started our Thematic learning on Romans by asking our big question which was ‘What impact have the Romans had on us?’. The children were really engaged with this and are excited to learn more next week.

Next week, we will be continuing our Thematic learning on the Romans, including going on our school trip on Wednesday to Dover castle!


Love to Learn

Choose one of the following:

  1. Continue practicing your speeches for the Speaker competition. Both Year 3 classes will be holding their in class competition on Tuesday afternoon

  2. Make a poster about the Romans, including fun facts and key dates

Top-Up PE is on a FRIDAY next term. Please could children come to school wearing their uniform and trainers.

World Book Day Thursday 7th March 2024

This year's World Book Day theme will be bedtime stories / reading for pleasure.  We invite children to share their favourite bedtime story book on this day and if they wish, come to school dressed in their bedtime clothing!  Children are invited to dress up as their favorite character from a book if they prefer another option.  We would like to remind families that there is no expectation for you to spend money on costumes.  An enjoyment of reading and sharing a story is our main aim for World Book Day this year.  

The Chilton Masked Reader

This year, we will share Chilton Masked Reader videos for World Book Day.  These videos will be created by our talented members of staff who will read a story without reveling their faces.  We hope our Chilton families will enjoy the stories and guess who the masked readers are! Links to these videos will be available on all school Blogs. 

Book Fayre

The Chilton Book Fayre will arrive on Monday 11th March and run until Friday 15th March outside the Year 5 classrooms. World Book Day book vouchers can we spent at the fayre. Cash and online payments are also available and a percentage of monies raised will go towards funding more books for Chilton children.
