We Enjoy and Excel in the Presence of God

Year 3 Blog - 20.4.23

It has been lovely to see all the children back this week. It has been a busy but fun week, starting our new units of work.

In English this week we started reading ‘Charlotte’s Web’, practising our fluency, inference skills and marking the text. The children have loved using expression for the different characters and loved discussing the personalities of different characters.

Homework; listen to or read chapter 4 in readiness for next Monday.

In Maths, we have focused on telling the time. Many children have found this challenging therefore to support their learning I have set additional homework on EdShed. The best way to learn time, is physically telling the time on a daily basis. The children need to know how to tell and solve problems using an analogue and digital clock.  

In jigsaw we have started our ‘Relationship’ unit, we have been talking about males, females and stereotypes. We have been looking at different roles within the home and different occupations.
