News from Year 3

Home » News » News from Year 3

This week in year 3:

We celebrated harvest by sharing our worship with the rest of school and parents and grandparents. It was lovely to have such a sunny day to say Thank you for the Harvest.

In English, we studied letter writing and discovered some of the features of a letter are the same as those for a diary. There are different features too though...and the layout is different. We worked hard on conjunctions and connectives and found that we could be writing magicians, dramatically changing the meaning of a sentence by using the power of small joining words. Look how different these two sentences are in meaning if we change the conjunction or connective:

Sir Guy was cross because the sheriff poured water on him.
Sir Guy was cross so the sheriff poured water on him!

We'll be using lots of conjunctions and connectives next week (if, so, when, while, until, before, after, so, although) to help us write longer sentences in our letters, when we write in the first person as characters from our class story.

In maths, we've explored the language and properties of shape. We can use the terms: quadrilateral, lines of symmetry, vertices, regular, irregular, length, and we can use properties to sort shapes using Venn Diagrams. The photos show some of us busy with our work.

We've studied maps too, to help us answer the question: Could we act out the story of Robin Hood in our village? By looking carefully at an aerial map and an Ordnance Survey map, we discovered evidence of a stream, a bridge, woodlands, a road to London, churches...and even a moat. Could this have been a castle? We'll learn more about this when we explore the History of Wybunbury from its first mention in the Domesday book, right up to present day. Our study work book is taking shape as we've added this work today.

What a busy week but, as Harry said, "Don't lessons fly when we're having fun". Lovely!

Have a great weekend everyone. Keep an eye out for letters about our Robin Hood adventure day. They came home this week. Look after your plants too, if you took them home. It would be great if you could harvest the beans from them...and take a photo if you can to show how well they grow!
