Celebrating learning in Year 3

Once again, the Year 3 team have been really impressed by the super learning that has been going on at school and at home. We have been busy since half term. In maths, we have been working on both mental and more formal strategies for addition and subtraction and in English the children have done some super diary writing. We have finished our science topic on bones and have been really impressed by how much the children have learnt about skeletons  (we have some future surgeons for sure!!). This week the children observed the minute silence for Remembrance day and showed great respect. Well done to all those who have taken part in Bikeability so far, you’ve been wheelie great!!  Thankyou for all the wonderful home learning around RE, Geography and Remembrance. As always we really appreciate the work the children bring in and send to us online. Here are just a few examples of the wonderful work that the children have done:

Keep reading as much as possible, practise times tables using SPARX and weekly spellings. In the week beginning the 22nd November, the children will be creating their own city landscapes in DT. Please try to bring in show boxes and small cardboard boxes (no cardboard from food products please) next week. Well done again for all your hard work Year 3 and have a great weekend.


Super Learning in Year 3!

We have had a very busy couple of weeks in Year 3 and we continue to be impressed with the learning that is going on in school and at home. In English we have been learning all about the features of non-chronological reports. The children enjoyed finding writing features in our text about penguins. In science we have been learning the scientific names for bones like: clavicle, mandible, thoracic cage and patella (not nutella!!!). We made our own funky skeletons and created x-rays of our hand bones.  We have been really impressed with the wonderful home learning that has been going on. There have been some really creative photos sent in (we are all very jealous of new puppies and delicious cream teas!!!) and we enjoy sharing these in class. We now have a very impressive selection of Stonehenge models ( well done all!) Keep up the great work Year 3.
