Celebration of Work
Year 3 have been working really hard over these past two weeks in all areas of their learning. They have really persevered with their multiplication and division in maths and are now ending the term with the revision of all the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In English, children are learning to write a recount through the perspective of the boy from the film, ‘The Snowman.’
Across the broader curriculum, we have continued to learn about natural disasters such as volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis in topic. We worked as a team to create and erupt our own volcanoes! It was such an exciting and insightful activity! In science, we have started to look at how sound is made and how it travels. In PE, children have been learning and practicing a range of new netball skills.
Over the last two weeks, Year 3 have been working extremely hard to master multiplication and division. We are now able to multiply by 3, 4 and 8! Please keep practicing these times tables at home with your child to secure their understanding. In writing and reading we are looking at non-chronological reports about natural disasters including tsunamis and volcanoes. We have also had lots of fun in our Jigsaw lessons with Jigsaw Gino and have been considering what makes our school amazing.
Year 3 has had a good start of Term 2! We have all settled well and have been following and adapting to our new school's 'Rainbow Rules' sincerely. We have been learning to be kind to ourselves, to each other and to our adults who support us at all times.
In English, we are learning to write a description of a mountain scene. In order to achieve an effective description writing we have been looking at using sophisticated vocabulary, prepositions, adverbs, verbs, conjunctions, similes and metaphors. In maths, we are mastering our multiplication and division operation skills and so far have learned to multiply and divide by 2, 5, 10 and 3. We are also solving lots of problems and reasoning in our math lessons. Please continue to support your children with multiplication at home.
In our broader curriculum sessions, we have started our Jigsaw approach to PSHE where we are learning to understand and value ourselves and other people around us through different activities such as calming time, sharing and self-reflection time. We have looked at how we can create shadows using different objects with different materials in science. Some of us made our own poppies and a picture with thoughtful messages on Armistice Day.
Over the last two weeks, Year 3 have been working extremely hard. In maths, we have now mastered adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers and have persevered at using the column method efficiently. In topic, we have been looking at Antarctica and why it is so cold. We have been looking at a number of explorers who have been to Antarctica. Our knowledge of the explorer Earnest Shackleton has enabled us to write a diary entry about a day that took place on his journey. We have also been focusing on kindness in our PSHE and assemblies and are currently working hard to use kind words and actions in class and on the playground.
Year 3 have had a brilliant start to the year. We have been working hard to remember the place value of 2 digit numbers as well as learn all about 3 digit numbers! In writing, we wrote a letter to the characters in the story 'The boy, the fox, the mole and the horse' telling them about how we persevere and show kindness. We have since moved on to writing a description about a rainforest, one of the extreme environments which we have been looking at in our Topic lessons.
