Year 3 Weekly News

Home » News » Year 3 Weekly News

This week we've been historical researchers, code creators and spent time shining the spotlight on our Science topic, light and dark!

In Maths this week we continued our place value work. We carried on by looking at 100s, 10s and 1s and in particular their values. This then helped us to explore number lines to 1000. We were able to use our place value knowledge to place numbers along a number line! We also used our new knowledge of intervals to decide which numbers were on a number line up to 1000!

In Book Club this week we started our guided reading in different groups. Each group had a text to read all about the Egyptian Gods! It was great to discuss tricky language and hear everyone's fantastic responses. We then completed comprehension questions on the text throughout the week. During the week, we also completed spelling work and quiet read!

In English this week we continued to investigate and use expanded noun phrases. This led to the very exciting news that we were going to be creating our own character for an adventure story. We all created an explorer-type character — whose mission it will be to explore the tomb of King Tut in next week's writing! We thought about both appearance and personality — allowing us to write brilliant descriptive writes on Friday .In SPaG this week we focused upon 'adding ING'. We recapped the main rules and practised in our books. We changed make to making, put to putting and even milk to milking (with some very funny actions, of course!). On Wednesday we completed an 'ING' crossword too! This helped us to spell lots of ING words throughout the week.

In History this week we completed a research question and placed Ancient Egypt on a timeline! We started by thinking about some key historic events like WW1, the invention of the telephone, the Tudors and of course James' birthday! We then went into the hall to spread out to demonstrate just how long ago the Ancient Egyptians were around! On our timeline was a pharaoh named Tutankhamen! This got us interested and we then spent time researching the question 'Who was King Tut?' 40 minutes later we found out he was a famous pharaoh — whose tomb was discovered by Howard Carter — he was only 9 when he ruled! It was amazing to hear all the facts and our new found knowledge was also explained to Mrs Chesters too! Well done, gang!

In Science this week we started our unit on light. Our focus this week was all about 'light sources'. We had key discussions about windows, the moon and mirrors — ultimately deciding that these WERE NOT light sources. We grouped things into two categories and discovered so many light sources including: lightbulbs, fire, headlights and the biggest light source of all, THE SUN! We will continue our investigations next week.

Throughout the week we continued our Daily Mile exercise! How many laps did you do? On Friday we took part in a calming breathing exercise — it was all very peaceful!

In R.E we started our learning around one of our big questions this year: 'How did Jesus spread Good News through the stories he told?''. We read the parable, The Pharisee and the Tax Collector. We thought about some words to describe the two characters and began to think about the moral of the story.

In French we played ball games to master the greeting, bonjour and au revoir! Well done, Y3

On Friday we went through our homework, looked at our reading diaries and spent time celebrating all the children who have so far completed a book review and also to those children who completed the Summer Reading Challenge — a fantastic effort!

Have a fantastic weekend,

Mr Dale
