What is one?

This week the whole school is having a focus on the number 1. In Y3 we have been doing some hard thinking about how 1 can sometimes represent more than 1 thing. For example one bag of apples actually contains six apples, each of which can be cut into eight slices. So one bag could represent 48 slices! We demonstrated this knowledge practically by looking at other fruit packages and discussing what each one bag could actually represent. We then investigated this by cutting up the fruit to create a yummy fruit salad we got to eat!

Dictionary skills

This week Y3 have been working on building up their dictionary skills. First we discussed what a dictionary is and how to use it. We then had races to see who could find different words in the dictionary. Finally we used our skills to find adjectives starting with different letters of the alphabet. 

Self portraits

Today in Y3NH we draw some self portraits to go alongside our fantastic ‘All about me’ writing we have been working on over the last two weeks. Miss Hall was very impressed with some of the children’s  attention to detail and their shading work when thinking about the colour of their hair. 

Direction writing 

Today Y3 have been writing directions to instruct people how to get to different places in WCM like the sports hall, the cafe and the bottom muga. We then followed our instructions to check we were right and made and corrections on directions needed. The final test was when we read our instructions out to the rest of the class and using a map of the school they had to guess where we had directed them too. Luckily we are amazing and accurate direction writers and everyone knew where our instructions were suppose to be taking them. Here are some photos of us in action. 

Break dancing

Every Monday the Y3’s are lucky enough to have a dance teacher come in and teach us street dancing. This week we had Chris come in and teach us some break dancing moves. Watch this space for some more moves next week and a performance for parents at the end of term.

Chilling..

Since it’s been so hot, Miss Edwards and Mr Hiron went to the shops at lunch and bought some ice lollies to cool us all down! Here’s some of Y3AE enjoying theirs..
