We Enjoy and Excel in the Presence of God

Year 3 Blog - 11.5.23

A super week in year 3, with lots of enthusiasm and energy in  our learning.

In English, we started our new text (film) driver ‘Ruckus’, we have enjoyed unpicking the meaning, making predictions and sharing likes, dislikes and patterns we noticed. The children have been very excited about finding out more.

In Guided Reading, we have continued to explore the text; ‘The Iron Man’, we have been building fluency in our reading, practising in partners and reading aloud in class. We have stressed the importance of reading at home to grow in confidence. 

In Maths, we have been learning multiplication, making links between numbers for example; 2x3 =, 20x3= explaining we multiply by ten. We have also been learning how to multiply using column (long) multiplication, using the place value table to help us partition numbers.

In Art, we explored mixing primary colours using powder paint to creating our own secondary colours. Then the children created names for their new colours. The children were fully engaged in their learning, they made some great colours and came up with some fantastic names. (see attached)

In R.E, we have been learning the story of the ‘Pentecost’ and what this means to Christians. We have been looking at different pieces of art work to represent Pentecost and explained our thinking.
