Welcome to year 3!
Please ensure your children have their PE kits in at all times as we have PE on a Monday and a Wednesday.
Homework and reading books are given out on a Friday and are expected back in the following Thursday.
This week we have been learning about our class expectations and wrote a Class Charter that we all signed.
Our PE this term is dance and we we learning how to run and do dance jumps.
Our topic this term is the Stone Age. In English, we have been looking at pictures, writing a setting description and trying to understand what the Stone Age was like from cave paintings using our book The First Drawing. We have also been lucky enough to have a box of Stone Age artefacts from the museum, which we spent time looking at.
In maths we have been counting to 100 and learning more about 10s and 1s.
This week in science we looked at the properties of different rocks and sorted them into different catagories.
Maths was exciting, we were representing numbers to 100 and 1000. To help us, we used place value charts and dienes.
In English, we carried on with our book, The First Drawing. It goes with our topic this term, which is about the stone age. We did character descriptions, thesaurus work to do with stone age words and we sequenced the events of the book.
In PE we have moved on with our dance routine and have started to perform them to each other. We are also doing a whole class dance routine.
In English we have been writing the beginning, middle and end of a narrative of our class book, The First Drawing.
In maths we have continued to learn about place value and exchanging ones, tens and hundreds. We have also been learning to add 1 more, 10 more and 100 more and and the same with less than.
In science we have been looking at which rock would be best to use on a roof.
We had a Paralympian visit it us called, Aaron Phipps. He plays rugby in his wheelchair and won a gold medal!!!! We were lucky enough to be able to hold the gold medal and it was VERY heavy!
