Y3 weekly update
Wow, we've had another very productive week in Year 3.
In Literacy, we continued to work on descriptive writing and, towards the end of the week, wrote descriptions of the Sheriff of Nottingham as he grew increasingly angry at news that Robin had foiled his plans yet again. We considered what happens to our bodies if we are angry to draw on real experience and then how we might behave. We even acted these feelings out and this helped us write some very powerful descriptions indeed. The sheriff is really quite funny as he has some serious tantrums...which the children described brilliantly!
In Numeracy, we began to look at column addition and everyone had success. In our outdoor lesson today, we used Robin Hood style wooden staffs to chant our three times tables and worked on place value.
In science, we learnt about the life cycle of a flowering plant and successfully turned some celery red as it absorbed water with added food colouring and we re-potted the seeds which have started to germinate.
We have continued to count in French and worked on numbers up to 30 today. Our French accents are sounding very authentic indeed! We also started work on introducing ourselves.
In RE, we considered reasons people might read the Bible. The children's responses showed real thought.
Today, everyone did their very best at their first times tables test! Well done to you all.
Some of the girls have been making 'perfumed water' from rose petals and herbs. We decided Maid Marion would probably have done the very same thing! They will design a perfume bottle label next week and write up how they carried out this independent task.
Next week, we will begin our art work, carefully sketching trees and paying close attention to detail and all of our sketches will go into study work books.
I have set new Mymaths homework and the children have until next Friday to complete it. Log in details have been sent home with those children who had forgotten theirs over the summer. The new spelling lists have also been sent home tonight with a letter explaining how the new system works.
I have also started planning our Robin of Sherwood adventure day. How exciting! More details of this will follow shortly.....
Have a happy weekend everyone.
