    What we have been doing!

    We have had scooter day and skateboard day. These days are fun, but they are trying to encourage children to actively travel to school. In English, we have  been looking at the book 'Here We Are', by Oliver Jeffers. From this we decided to write letters to people we have not seen for a while, tell them about Lockdown and share a memory.

    > Homework should be completed for Tuesday. Mathletics there are 3 tasks and try to complete 3 spelling tasks. 

    >PE Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    It's hard to image that the children have been absent for 8 weeks of this term, as they have settled back like summer flip flops on the beach. 

    Poetry! That's all we have been doing (in English). The children have been engaged, they have performed, written and performed again. On our Google Classroom page you can see the first set of poems that I have managed to film. If you want to leave supportive comments then please do. 

    In Maths, we have started looking at place value again. Just to refresh our memories.

    Art - we focussed on Rembrandt and his obsession with noses. We created a scribbled pencil page then sketched portraits of our classmates using only erasers. 


    Mathletics - there are 2 new tasks due for Tuesday

    Spelling Shed - Due Tuesday

    TT Rockstars - we are focussing on the 6 timetables.

    This week

    A busy week in English, we have learnt: what an imperative verb is and how to use it! When we should use exclamation marks, we have looked at some of the problems with plastic pollution in our reading and finally, we have planned letters to write to Julian Lewis to ask him to petition Boris Johnson to ban single use plastics. 

    In Mathematics, we have taken small steps into understanding how fractions are created. We firstly looked at Europe as our whole and countries within Europe as our parts of our whole. We have moved onto understanding how to write fractions and what a unit fraction is. 

    In geography, we looked at wind turbines and solar farms and asked why they are becoming more popular. 

    In PE we rolled around on mats a lot. This was part of our movements in gymnastics topic. Outdoor PE, we looked at sidestepping and pivoting, which we then used to play a game of piggy-in-the-middle.

    A lovely week!

    This has been an active week in Year 3, but the children have taken to it with enthusiasm. We were lucky enough to be given a book each for free from Karen who owns the COOP. The book inspired us to create a tree from plastic waste (see results below). 

    In Maths, we have investigated the relationship between mm, cm and m. We have measured everything, from our noses to the ends of pencils. We have converted the units and found halves and quarters of them. 

    In English we started a new documentary unit, call The Majestic Plastic Bag. It showed a mockumentary of how a plastic bag ends up in the Pacific Ocean from a supermarket. 

    In art we had a model pose for us whilst we undertook drawing challenges, where we were not allowed to take our pencil off the paper until we had finished our picture. After, we were only allowed to use straight lines to draw the model. 

    Book changes: Wednesday and Friday


    Indoors = Tuesday

    Outdoors = Thursday

    Library = Thursday.
