The mystery of Tutankhamun

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

This week, we have been learning about King Tutankhamun, ready to write a newspaper report about the discovery of his tomb. ~The children have loved beginning to learn a song about King Tut... why not ask them to hear some?

In literacy, we have been looking at newspaper reports and have picked out the key features of the reports. Watch this space to see some of the fantastic reports we will be writing over the next two weeks.

In maths, we have started to look at multiplication and have been practising recognising multiplication as equal groups of the same number. We will be continuing to look at multiplication over the next week, and will be moving on to using the column method to multiply.

We have started out new class book of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone this week, and the children are absolutely loving every second! Wizards in the making...

Have a wonderful weekend, whatever the weather!

Feeling hot hot hot!

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

What beautiful weather we are having and are still being treated to yet another sunny weekend! I'm starting to believe that the weather reporters do know what they're talking about! We have been very lucky and kept cool in our air conditioned classroom ;)

This week we were absolutely fantastic in our class assembly! Thank you to everyone who came and supported us, we hope you enjoyed looking at our hard work! We have loved our Egyptian topic and now know lots of facts about it. We're sure you'd agree that we certainly have some budding actors and actresses in our presence too!

This week was also an opportunity to meet our new teachers and spend time in our new classrooms. Hawthorn went to Mrs Trolley for two days and Juniper went to Mr Holt. The children had lots of fun meeting their new teachers, but it was lovely to have them back in year 3 ready for a 'normal' week next week. With this in mind, this week's homework is to write a letter to our new class teacher to introduce ourselves. You could include: your favourite lessons, your family information, your favourite things, and any interesting or important facts about yourself that you think your teacher may like to know.

This week's spelling are:











Happy practising! I must apologise for the spellings not being marked this week- they will be marked on Monday!

Have a lovely, sun filled weekend. I look forward to hearing about your fun in the sun on Monday.

Super Science!

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

This week we enjoyed sharing our science work with our Year 1 buddy classes! We took our books into the hall and told Year 1 all about the wonderful work we have been doing. We are following up our work with our homework this week, which is to find different plants in your garden or near your house and make a list. You can draw them too if you like! Our main focus in science for the next few weeks is plants. Today, we planned an experiment to investigate what happens to plants when you change factors such as their leaves, the light they get or the water they have. We are going to see how not having these things effects our plants! Poor plants, we are sorry in advance...

In maths, we have focused on 2D shapes and their properties. We have looked at the angles they have and the lines they have, recognising parallel and perpendicular and all the angle family!

This week's spellings are from our 109 words that Year 3 and 4 need to learn. We are doing them all in alphabetical order, so some may be ones we have had previously:











Happy practising!

This weekend and following week are meant to be beautiful. Don't forget to bring your sun cream to school if you need it! Enjoy your weekend!

Egyptian travel agents!

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

This week we have researched aspects of Ancient Egypt to put in our very own holiday brochure. We have looked at lots of brochures for research and made a note of all the features they have. The children loved looking at the different ways the brochures were folded and their heads are flooded with ideas about how they can make their brochure exciting! Next week, we will be starting to make our brochures. This week's literacy homework is to find 3 facts about Ancient Egypt, and we will be including these in our brochures.

In maths we have been introduced to the angle family! We have focused mainly on finding right angles in shapes and in our environment. We can now recognise that acute angles are smaller than right angles and obtuse angles are bigger than right angles. Next week we will be looking at 3D shapes!

This weeks spellings are:











Happy practising!

Have a lovely weekend. Don't forget to come in your sports clothes and coloured t shirt on Monday ready for sports day! Make sure you do your sun dances in aid of the occasion.

Auto or biography

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

This week in Hawthorn class, we have been researching J K Rowling, the author of Harry Potter. We have found out lots of facts about her life and were very surprised to hear how much she was worth!! We plan to write a biography about her next week to run alongside us reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (we are more than halfway through!).

In our topic lessons we have focussed on Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and have written descriptions of the main ones. We are working in partners to conduct our own 'Egypt's got talent!' next week, where we will present our descriptions and actions for the Gods. The children are really excited about this, as am I!

In maths, we have continued to look at digital time and how this shows us times to the hour e.g. 50 minutes means ten to. This has been a little confusing, but the children have worked really hard at this and it is clicking (or ticking!).

This week's spellings are:











Happy practising!

Have a great weekend everyone, I've heard it is meant to be beautiful!
