Celebration of Work

13/10/2017 - As part of Year 3's Egyptians Topic, they have been using pyrus paper to begin creating portraits from photographs of themselves. Watch this space for the finished article! They have also had a great time making Egyptian necklaces using paper plates.  They decorated them with scarabs made out of clay and embellished them with paint and gem stones to make them look authentic.

 

29/09/2017 - Year 3 have started to explore addition and subtraction this week.  We have used counters to make sure that we fully understand the place value of what we are doing and have really enjoyed it.  In English, we have been writing letters to Mr Wonka trying to persuade him to build us a school made from chocolate.  Lots of the children believe that being allowed to eat part of the classroom would motivate them to work harder!

 

15/09/2017 - Year 3 have all settled really well back into school life and are starting to work very hard. We have been recapping our knowledge of place value and learning to mentally add and subtract ten and one hundred from any number.  We have also been writing recounts about a film that we watched where a young boy heads into the woods to go camping and comes face to face with a menacing monster, who wants to eat his marshmallows!
