Sorry for not updating the page recently! I have been having trouble getting onto the website... technology!
The children have been working so hard over the last 2 weeks, I am really pleased with everybody. This week, we finished writing our first big write of the half term, a retell of 'The three little pigs'. It was a different version of the traditional tale and the children had lots of fun with the sequence of lessons.
In maths, we have moved onto adding and subtracting 1,2 and 3 digit numbers. In science we have learnt about the human skeleton and this week are looking at the muscles and what they do for our body.
We have also had lots of fun this week doing D&T. The children have designed and made some fantastic stick puppets with moving parts - pictures to follow. These will come home after they have been displayed in school for a little bit.
I will do one more homework for next week but will not be giving them anything to do for half term! Continue to read and practise times tables but mainly, enjoy the break!
What a busy week Year 3 have had, we have been working really hard and I am really happy with our progress!
In English, we have continued our writing on 'The true story of the three little pigs'. We have covered: complex sentences, onomatopoeia, adjectives, verbs, adverbials and using repetition for effect - just this week!
In maths, we are still working through our 'place value' work, this week we moved onto numbers up to 1000. We have also been practising our times tables, these are going to be very helpful for our learning in KS2.
In Science, we have been learning about nutrition and designed a healthy/balanced meal that contained all 5 food groups. In art we explored how atmosphere can be created using different colours and used this to create 'Once upon a time' themed castles.
In curriculum for life we have been learning about 'relationships' and in geography we looked at different cities in the UK and will compare London to Blofield.
A busy but very productive week, enjoy your weekend Year 3.
I won't be in Monday/Tuesday as I will be on a first aid course so I will see you all Wednesday - I have planned some fun lessons for the next couple of days so don't worry!
There is no designated book changing day. As soon as children have read their book, they can do a quiz and change their book in the school library. We will help them do this!
We have had a fantastic first week in Year 3! This week has all been about settling in, decorating our classroom and having some fun. We talked about our dreams and aspirations, we made our new safe guarding hands, we started some of our topic work by making some 'groovy' skeletons and painted self portraits!
Thank you to all of Year 3 for making our first week back so enjoyable.
Have a great weekend, Mr H

PE will be on a Monday and *Friday* afternoon, children will need to bring their PE kits on these days.
