This week in year 3
This week, in Literacy, we worked on writing poems inspired by the work of Pie Corbett and Jenny Joseph and used our senses to write poems titled: A Poem To Be Spoken Silently and The Magic of the Brain. Some of the results were enough to give us goose bumps!
In maths, we have worked on puzzles and then focused on writing EXPLANATIONS of how we solved them. Today, we looked at mathematical spirals and found patterns and created spirals of our own, recording results and explaining them. We were amazed to find that nature uses maths to build many repeated patterns such as the petals on flowers and the spirals on shells. We learnt that this was based on a special sequence of numbers known as the Fibonacci sequence. Amazing!
Some children have now learnt all their tables and their next step is to learn the square numbers and their inverse.
We have enjoyed a fantastic week of sport. It was brilliant to see ALL the children giving their best on school sports day and I would like to congratulate the year 3 Town Sports team who won their group and brought a trophy back to school. Well done everyone.
I have already added details of our upcoming powwow and will send more information over the next week or two.
We have also considered the environment of our Native American Indian tribes and used atlases and other sources to locate places in the UK which could have been a suitable home for them. We looked at land use, population, climate, the geology of the areas and whittled places down until we were sure our tribe could survive successfully in our selected regions of Britain.
In French, we learnt the names of some animals and practised phrases such as I love, I like, I dislike. We will continue with this next week.
What a busy, fun and productive week. Well done everyone and enjoy your weekend.
