We have made it!
Well done Class 3 for giving 110% this half term, I am very proud of all your efforts and hard work both in school and with home learning.
In Guided Reading this week, we have continued exploring The Rainforest Grew All Around. This week, we developed our summary skills, recapping the adventures we have experienced throughout the book and summarising what we have remembered and learnt.
In Literacy, the children have worked very hard to develop and create a persuasive advertisement, encouraging their target audience to visit a European country. This links well with our current Geography focus of Europe.
In Maths, class 3 have been exploring money, estimation and problem solving this week. We have used money to subtract amounts, round and estimate amounts and to give change. We have also explored diameter and mass this week, challenging ourselves further with money.
As this week is well-being week, afternoon tasks have been very crafty and creative, inspired by our class book Emily’s Idea. The children have made paper chains, explored origami, created fruit faces inspired by Italian painter Giuseppe Archimboldo and much more.
Thank you for all your engagement and hard work this half-term, I am very proud of your fantastic efforts.
Stay safe and have a lovely half-term!
Well done once again for another brilliant week of hard work Class 3!
In Guided Reading this week, we have continued exploring The Rainforest Grew All Around. This week, we developed our retrieval skills further, extending our knowledge of animals living in the rainforest.
In Literacy, the children have written a newspaper article about a rare fossil or bone discovery, inspired by The Pebble in My Pocket. This also linked nicely with our Science module of Rocks and Soils. We have also explored persuasive writing this week, identifying key persuasive writing features.
In Maths, class 3 have been exploring money and estimation this week. We have converted pound and pence, compared amounts of money using greater than, less than and equals to and worked hard with our column addition to support our understanding of adding amounts.
In Geography, we researched ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions that interested us the most. For example, how do rivers flow? Or why do volcanos erupt? The children had lots of fun during this research task and found out plenty of new information.
Thank you for all your engagement and hard work this week, keep up the hard work!
Stay safe and have a lovely weekend!
Well done for another week of hard work!
In Guided Reading this week, we have continued exploring The Rainforest Grew All Around. This week, we developed our summary skills, using information from the text.
In Literacy, the children have planned a newspaper article of a rare bone or fossil discovery, linking it to our class book The Pebble in My Pocket.
In Maths, class 3 have been exploring properties of shape. We have also learnt about right angles and right angle turns. Next week, we will explore acute and obtuse angles.
In Science this week, we continued investigating rocks and soils, this week exploring famous palaeontologists like Mary Anning, linking well with our Literacy writing.
In Geography, we researched the population, vegetation, climate and physical geographical features of European countries, before identifying similarities and differences.
Keep up the hard work and have a lovely weekend!
We made it to Friday!
In Guided Reading this week, we have continued exploring The Rainforest Grew All Around. We have worked hard to develop our retrieval skills this week.
In Literacy, the children have worked hard to develop their knowledge of writing in the third person and in the past tense, as well as using inverted commas to support our newspaper article writing next week.
In Maths, class 3 have been exploring tenths, hundredths and decimals. The children have worked very hard to further their understanding, completing recall activities and comparison tasks.
In Science this week, we continued investigating rocks and soils, this week exploring how fossils are made.
In Geography, we researched the physical features of particular countries in Europe and thought about why these physical features may change population and vegetation.
Well done for all of your hard work this week, keep it up!
What a week it has been! Class 3 have worked very hard once again this week, engaging well both in school and through home learning.
In Guided Reading this week, we developed our retrieval, comprehension and summary skills whilst reading The Rainforest Grew All Around.
In Literacy, the children explored the essential features of narrative writing and developed a plan to create their own narrative piece of writing, inspired by The Pebble in My Pocket. We have also completed plenty of SPAG exercises, focusing this week on personal pronouns, adverbs and prepositions.
In Maths, Class 3 have continued to learn about fractions. This week, children have confidently completed various activities to develop their understanding of adding and subtracting fractions.
In Geography, we have learnt about physical and human features of Europe. Next week, we are going to investigate a specific location in Europe and think about how physical and human features may effect a locations population.
Thank you for your continuous hard work and engagement with home learning. Have a lovely weekend and a well-deserved rest! Happy Friday!
Class 3 have worked incredibly hard this week, both in school and accessing home learning.
In Guided Reading this week, we have looked at our new book The Rainforest Grew All Around. We have made a prediction about the text and retrieved key information about the Amazon rainforest and the Amazon river.
In Literacy the children have used our class book The Pebble in my Pocket to explore, develop and create a setting description, including exciting adjectives and similes.
In Maths, class 3 have been looking at unit and non-unit fractions. I have been very impressed with the creative ways used to explore fractions at home, using the resources available.
In Science this week, we started our Rocks and Soils module, studying natural and human made rocks. This links very well to our Geography topic this term.
In Geography, we explored our topic focus of Europe. We used Google Maps and Google Expeditions to explore differing landscapes in Europe, comparing population, climate and vegetation.
Keep up the hard work!
