Term 3


We have had an amazing first week back, the children have shared all the exciting things they have done over the half term. We have started to look at poems this week and the features of a poem. We have used our amazing ideas to complete and write our own poem. We have also been busy in Maths this week and have been looking at arrays and multiplying. They have also looked at atlas' to find where Weston-Super-Mare is located and have drew their own map of the south west of the United Kingdom.


We have been very lucky to have M and M productions come into the school to perform the play 'Peter Pan'. Our children loved watching the play and took hints and tips about performing. They later performed their own plays of 'The princess and the Pea'.


We have been looking at traditional tales in English, the children have created a whole class story map and then we have used actions to retell the story. The first story we looked at was 'The Princess and the Pea' and now we are looking at 'The Elves and the Shoemaker'. The children then had to retell the stories in their English books and change characters or objects within the story. We were amazed with their stories and the use of adjectives within their work. We have also been focusing on multiplication and division in Maths, the children have been using different techniques to answer some problem solving questions.


Year 3 have been enjoying their Friday afternoons at the woods with Mrs Parker, at forest school. Here are some photos of the children exploring.
