Just when we thought Ella couldn’t wow us any more with her home learning she exceeded all our expectations with this amaZing model of Stone Henge!

She is the queen of home learning!

Problem solvers

In Maths this week, Y3 are working hard on reasoning and problem solving in groups. Yesterday we played a game called ‘ Strike it out’ and today we are dealing with money, finding solutions for the problem below:

Thesaurus

This week in guided reading we are learning how to use a thesaurus. We decided on 4 pretty boring words as a class and are finding synonyms (words that mean the same thing) for them.

P4C

The concept for our P4C lesson today was “responsibility”.

We are really good at getting into small groups and sharing our first thoughts and making an argument for our points.

As a class we have been doing a lot of work around our self and our identity. We have all created an identity circle which are displayed in our classroom. These will be sent to our linking school, Arbourthorne who we will be meeting up with soon to share a P4C lesson with!

Dictionaries

This week in Y3, we are working on becoming dictionary masters! Today we’ve been finding definitions of topic words such as ‘archaeology’ and ‘spear’.

Getting critical…

This afternoon, Y3 have been busy critiquing a letter ready for our letter writing next week. We’ve been saying what we liked about the WAGOLL (what a good one looks like) to help us understand what to put into our writing.

More fantastic home learning

Dawid and his Dad worked very hard making an excellent bow and arrows at home as part of Dawid’s home learning. It is made out of wood and nylon to make it extra strong. Today we finally got the chance to see Dawid shooting his arrows and we were amazed at how far they went!

Stone Age Boy

This morning Miss Edwards was very impressed with our reading of Stone Age Boy! We’ve been working really well together to predict what might happen next…

A very windy PE lesson

Today in outdoor PE, we’ve been working on our ball skills. Some of us practised our accuracy with throwing and catching using hoops and tennis balls and the rest of us practised hitting the ball over the net with a tennis racquet.
