16 Sep Fantastic work Year 3!
It’s been a very busy week in Year 3! Getting back into the swing of things!
In Maths this week we have been continuing our place value work, looking at numbers up to 1000. Children have been fantastic in their maths lessons. We did some fun work doing some rota activities, I know the children loved playing a dice game that I taught them about creating 4 digit numbers.
In Literacy we have continued out work on the book Gorilla. We spoke a lot this week about direct speech and the punctuation that we need to include when doing speech. We also wrote some acrostic poems, where we shared our understanding of the book using the word: GORILLA.
In History we have been looking more at tools that were used in the Stone Age and comparing them across the different eras of the Stone Age.
In Science we got a chance to look at the lovely rocks that the students have brought in, we tried sorting them based on different criteria. We also looked at some important pieces of vocabulary when it comes to describing the rocks and discussed what this vocabulary means. Children created mini-dictionaries with these terms that we will be using throughout the unit when trying to sort the rocks that we have. Any more rocks that children want to bring in will be much appreciated!
In RE we spoke more about the Bible’s big story, focusing this time on the Creation story and the story of Adam and Eve. This allowed us to look at how the Bible focuses on God’s connection with people.
Children also took part in PE and had their Music and Spanish lessons. The Year 3 class have been on their best behaviour all week in all of these lessons. So, well done children!
Speaking as your class teacher it’s been lovely having the opportunities to sit and work with every child in the class individually, ensuring that children understand their work and doing our best to support them as much as possible!
Have a fantastic weekend, families! I will see everyone again on Tuesday!
