Year 3 news
We are at the end of our first full week back. What a busy week it has been.
In Literacy, we have worked very hard on writing descriptive sentences about the storm which began the story Robin of Sherwood and have used adjectives and adverbs to bring our writing to life, with sentences like 'Howling wildly, the raging wind tore through the forest' appearing in our work! What a great start!
In maths, we have looked closely at number families and learnt that subtraction is the inverse of addition and division is the inverse of multiplication. This has prepared us for the new way we will be tested on our times tables. We also enjoyed an active outdoor maths lesson, revising odd and even numbers, multiples and consecutive numbers and we made ourselves into a human number line!
In science, we have planted a range of seeds and waited to see what would happen. Ashton's seed was the first to germinate and we were all very excited to see if our seeds would germinate too before the week ended. We will continue to observe our seeds closely and re-pot them when they are strong enough.
We dissected lilies and looked for all the parts of a flowering plant we now know. The photograph shows Georgina and Emme's plant parts laid out. Didn't they do a careful job? Can you see the carpel, stamen, petal, stem and can you name the parts which make up the male and female sections of the plant? We are also waiting to see the results of our question: How do plants use water? We placed flowers in water containing food colouring to check out our theory that the plants absorb water through the roots and it travels up the stem.
In French, we have already learnt to answer the question How are you? and we can count to ten (and some of us have progressed to counting up to 20). Fantastique!
In RE, we have learnt that there are 66 books in the Bible and we know what some of these books contain and in PE we enjoyed learning ball control skills in basketball.
Phew! What a lot going on! To add to all that, our class novel Robin of Sherwood has really got going and next week we will find out who is travelling through Sherwood Forest and what the Outcasts plan to do next!
Have a lovely weekend year 3. You have certainly earned it!
