Welcome back! We hope everyone enjoyed a lovely break.
We’re straight back into it in Y3, learning all about Kenya 🇰🇪 which is our new topic! Today we used atlases to locate Kenya and find different features of the country such as the capital city, Nairobi.
In Maths we are continuing our fraction learning and today we began learning about equivalent fractions, using fraction bars and walls to find the equivalent fractions.
Before we broke up for Easter holidays, it was beautiful weather so we thought we should celebrate our hard work by having ice lollies in the sun ☀️
Well done to everyone who got a special badge for losing no golden time in the last term (since Christmas). Hopefully we will have a whole class full next term!
A big well done to all our reading miles badge winners in Y3AE! They all achieved 40 or more reads since Christmas!
This week in Y3, we are recapping the Easter story and learning why the cross is such an important symbol to Christians. Today we sequenced the Easter story.
In maths we are continuing our learning about fractions and finding fractions of amounts.
Check out Abdullah’s death mask he made as part of his home learning!
On Friday, Y3AE sadly said ‘see you soon’ to Miss Porter, who has been visiting us from university since October. We’re all going to really miss her!
Special shout outs to a few people this week!
It was Yezids turn at getting full marks on all his tests this week! He’s been so close to 24/24 for weeks now on the beat that test so a big well done to him!
James, Joseph and Chloe all made it on to the Taekwondo rocket after lots of hard work on their times tables!
Ahmed was on fire on Friday, passing his 2, 5 and 3 taekwondos! Well done Ahmed!
This week in Y3 we have been writing the story of Egyptian Cinderella using speech.
We are so amazed at the vocabulary and use of punctuation that the children have used. Here’s a few examples but please do come and ask for their Literacy books to have a look at your child’s writing!
