Y3 Poetry and palindromic numbers

Home » News » Y3 Poetry and palindromic numbers

This week in year 3, we have enjoyed a range of poetry, trying to use expression, tone and volume to enhance our performances. We have read City Jungle, Mini Secrets and The Magic Box and produced our own poems in their style.

Examples:

The dragon's secret
I'll never tell anyone but
I have a volcano safe in me.

The acorn's secret
I'll never tell anyone but
I have an enchanted forest locked inside me.

The sunflower's secret
I'll never tell anyone but
I have the light of a thousand suns
tucked away in my heart. Shhhhh...

In numeracy, we have revisited expanded and compact methods for addition of 3 digit numbers and then we used our skills to investigate palindromic numbers. There were some surprises and patterns found!

In R.E, we are learning about some aspects of the Islamic faith and today we learned about some of the 99 names Allah is known by. We also learned that Muslims use pattern for decoration, rather than animal or human form, and we designed prayer mats with geometric shapes.

In art, we used careful sketching to produce a Native American Indian scene, drawing the horizon as a starting point and using this to place trees and tepees in the foreground or background. We used watercolour carefully to create the right tones and shades of colour. Some examples are shown in the pictures here.

In history, we learned about the Native Americans and how, when European settlers arrived, there were battles and skirmishes over land. We role played and then wrote contracts which could have helped the American Indian and European settlers live in harmony together.

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend.
