This week, Y3 have been designers and creators, forest school den builders and spag superstars!

In music this week, you created your own pan flutes based on a Roman musical instrument. You designed, measured and created your instrument using straws and sellotape to hold them all in place. You were so proud to show me these as you had worked very hard on them with Miss Holland.

In maths this week, you have continued to work on the addition and subtraction unit this time focusing on adding and subtracting three digit and three digit numbers, deciding on whether you need to exchange or not. Miss Roux and I have been so impressed with your resilience and perseverance skills in this unit of maths. You have worked hard on recapping number bonds which has helped you with quick recall and also checking your answers. Well done Y3.

We have continued on in English with our Iron Man trap creations. We had some VIPs from the council join us and we had to tell them all about our traps to see what they thought! They asked us lots of questions too about our traps which made us think how we could improve them! You also role played being news reporters and villagers, talking about the impact Iron Man has had on your village and ideas for what needs to be done about it! We also incorporated some new learning on adverbs. It was great to spot a range of different examples in our model text.

In well-being this week, we thought about what we want to be in the future and recorded our thoughts in the form of pictures, notes and doodles. We also learnt a new strategy to feel calm and positive which was thinking about saying nice things to yourself, starting with I am, I can and I know. We had a go at this as a team too.

In spag this week, we carried on learning about suffixes, mainly -ful and -ly. We recognised these in our writing and wrote our own. We also looked at the spelling pattern for the suffix -ous.

In RE this week, we completed our harvest unit of work, asking the question what do words in songs and prayers tell us about Christian beliefs at harvest time? We thought of lots of our favourite harvest songs and listened to them, noting down any phrases we liked that could help us answer the questions. We especially liked 'God helped to feed the earth' and 'the yellow corn stood strong in the field like God in all of his glory'. You wrote some lovely answers for our question and we enjoyed sharing them with each other across the week.

In art this week, we finished our painting with scissors unit of work, learning all about the work of Henry Matisse who used scissors to create all of his masterpieces. We focused in on two Roman pieces of art in a mosaic style and this time chose two of three aspects of the painting to inspire our own painting with scissors creations. Year 3 – I was so impressed! These were fantastic pieces of art and I loved how proud you all were of your creations.

In science, we continued our work on contact and non contact forces as we explored these forces within a practical activity. We observed forces and decided whether they need contact to work. It was great to see the power of these forces and we also became familiar with those forces that are invisible like gravity and magnetic forces. I wonder if you can spot the puzzling observation that we found when two of our magnets were attracted to one another?

In PSHE, we thought about Love to decide what what love is and what it is not. Heartsmart says 'Love makes our hearts strong so that as we let love into our heart, we're making ourselves strong for today, tomorrow and the future.' Our whiteboard was full of ideas of what we think love is. They were so lovely to read. One of our favourites was 'Love is the sparkle of life.' This links to the bible quote, Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, it does not brag, and it is not proud. Love is not rude, is not selfish, and does not become angry easily. Love does not remember wrongs done against it. Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices over the truth. Love patiently accepts all things. It always trusts, always hopes, and always continues strong. Love never ends. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. We also looked at a clip from the film Moana to help remind us that it is important to let love into our heart .
