Welcome to Year 3!
This week in Maths we have been exploring place value further, and concentrating on writing our numbers as words correctly. We have also been working on counting backwards and forwards in ten.
In english we have been watching The Pirates! Band of Misfits! and using it to help us write our own stories for what happens next? We really concentrated on using speech and the correct punctuation. We focused on using lots of adjectives, as well as making sure we picked brilliant words to replace 'said'.
We also had a fantastic P.E lesson where we used yoga to create different pirate themed poses.
Here is Year 3's work of the week!
We have had a really exciting and busy week in year 3 this week, particularly with a visit from Warburtons who came in to bake delicious bread with us.
In maths this week we have been working really hard to learn to learn our numbers bonds to 10, 100 and 20. We have also been investigating place value.
In english we have been working hard on our descriptive writing by creating our own descriptions of characters and scenes. We started by working in groups to generate ideas together and share them with the class, before challenging ourselves to create our own descriptions.
Welcome back after the summer holidays and to year 3!
This week we settled into our new class and met our teachers for this year: Miss Pring, Miss Smith and Mrs Parker. We spent time creating our 'Golden Rules' together as a class which are now displayed in our new classroom.
We spent time getting to know each other by writing our own autobiographies in english. We focused on answering questions in a plan, transforming it into a draft before finally putting it on some posh paper!
In maths we also created and completed tally charts to discover year 3's favourite thing. We investigated: favourite teacher, favourite crisps, favourite fruit and favourite sport. We then presented our data in a bar graph, being very careful to use a ruler so it was accurate and neat. .
