Home learning

Year 3 have already created some amazing home learning this term, from Stone Age code breakers to fact files and a fabulous spear. The children have all enjoyed sharing their home learning with the class, keep them coming in!

Stone Age Day

Today, the Y3’s enjoyed spending the morning with Mr Allsop learning about different aspects of life during the Stone Age.

The children enjoyed learning about making fires, weapons and foraging for food.

Summer Challenge

Today the children took home their Summer Challenge. This year the challenge is to send a postcard to school telling us about somewhere you visited during the holiday. We would also like you to bring into school an ‘object of interest’ to share with the class.

As always there is also the 30 Summer Reads to complete!

Have a lovely summer break!

The Year 3 team.

Kenyan Koekies

In Literacy we have been looking at using imperative verbs in instructions. On Wednesday we followed a recipe to make Koekies – a Kenyan sweet biscuit. On Thursday we ate them during Guided Reading and they were delicious! On Friday we will be writing up our recipe!

Active Maths!

Today we have enjoyed the sunshine by taking our maths outside. We worked in groups to find different objects with values on around the tennis court. We then had to add them together and find the total, proving it with number lines, bar models and column addition!

Community Week – recycling

This week we have kicked off community week with a visit from Becky Lynne who spoke to us about plastic pollution in Kenya and in the UK. We then made a ball out of recycled plastic and used them in a P.E. lesson. From this we planned and wrote a leaflet on recycling to show to the Year 6’s.

We then had Mrs Walsh visit the class on Tuesday and talked to us about how we could all improve recycling in and around school. We learnt a lot from this and made our own recycling posters. We have had a big push at the start of the week to try and bring in a recycled bottle for water instead of buying one from the cafe everyday and we have even used reusable trays instead of wasting paper pick and mix bags!
