We have had a very Christmassy week in year 3!
We have continued writing poetry and have begun to include skills such as alliteration and onomatopoeia, leading to some absolutely fantastic poems. We have also being reflecting on our own Christmas traditions and recounting the special ways that we celebrate this time of year.
In maths, we have been learning about money. We have learnt to identify the different types of coins and how to add different amounts. We also investigated which combinations of different coins can be used to make a given amount. Finally, we have looked at how to find change when paying for items using coins and notes.
We ended our 'How Humans Work' topic by creating a healthy meal that contained all five of the food groups. We used various ingredients to make sure our meal had carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals, calcium and a small amount of fat, all of which are vital for humans to function.

Message from Miss Davey
Dear Parents and Carers,
It is safe to say at Chilton Primary School, we love to read! We love to read in class, in the forest school, outside on the playground, in the library and in lots of comfy and cosy places around the school. In order to encourage children to read as much as possible over the Christmas holidays, we are setting a Festive Reading Challenge! We ask children to send in a picture of them reading a book that they love in a festive setting. This might be wearing their favourite Christmas jumper, sat next to their Christmas tree, or maybe even with the big man himself. Please can photos be emailed to Miss Davey on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will pull out two winners on the first Friday after Christmas during Chilton Heroes assembly. The winner will receive a book of their choice from the Scholastic website.
Happy Festive reading!
