Just like that, the first week back after the holiday is over!
We have had a busy week starting some new and exciting units! In Geography we looked at populations of different countries and watched the count of the population of the world... live! We have been exploring using concrete resources in maths to support us with our pictorial and abstract representations. Working as a team to work through addition and subtraction equations of 3-digit numbers!
Our focus in English has been vocabulary, we have been learning about similes, can you make some fun similes at home? We were also lucky to have a tag rugby session this afternoon, it was great to see Year 3 having fun and working as a team!
Next week in science, we will be exploring our new unit - Raw Materials. It would be great if the children collected some objects from home made from different materials (plastics, cotton, metal, wood and so on). One or two per child is more than enough for us to share and sort as a class.
This half-term, we have started sharing books that we would like our friends to read. Each week a child takes their turn to choose some books for our display. These can come from home or school and are placed for others to read and share. This has really helped encourage a love of reading this week, we will go through the class in register order to help make sure everyone gets to share!
Here is a link to some information on similes that may help with some simile fun at home! Similes interactive - Teaching resources (wordwall.net)
