In Year 3 this week:

On Monday, some children completed a multiplication and division assessment and I'm delighted to say that lots of hard work on times tables at home as paid off. Everyone has made good progress after working hard to learn some tricky methods to calculate, and, by using their new times tables knowledge, children have made as much as 63% improvement on assessment scores! What a fantastic effort. Keep working on times tables...they will help with your work in so many areas of maths.

We've started work on fractions, and again, times tables work is paying off. Children made fantastic progress in just two days, and astounded me today as they were able to find equivalent fractions such as 2/7 = 4/14! We've also successfully calculated fractions of amounts. Brilliant!

Others have continued work with Mrs Van Russelt and she reports that many children are now bringing newly acquired skills to other areas of maths. Great work all round year 3.

In English, we started the week by completing dairy entries and also wrote letters in character. On Thursday, we started to think about explanation texts and wrote explanations for how magic cupboards work. You wouldn't believe what can happen once the key is turned! There has been some great imaginative writing.

We've also worked on Light in Science and enjoyed a range of activities to help us understand that we need light to see, and also how light travels and how shadows are formed.

We thought about where our tribes might live if they were in the U.K. rather than North America. We studied maps of Great Britain to decide where to place our tribes based on the geographical information we could find.

Plans are underway for our Powwow celebration day at the end of the summer term. Perhaps Year 3 could begin to think about the regalia they would like to wear as we celebrate all our Native American Indian work on this day?

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
