It has been such a beautiful, sunny week! This week we have really explored our class text, Nen and the Lonely Fisherman. We have been reading the text together and thinking about how to read with expression to engage the listener. We have also been explroing the feelings of the characters by writing diary entries from the view of the character at different parts of the story.
In maths, we have been learning how to add and subtract values of money. We can recognise different coins and notes and use partitioning and number lines to calculate.
We are learning about animals in our science lesson next week! Habitats and ecosystems! We will be exploring the behaviours of different species, their habitats, food chains and food webs. The children could do some research before our lessons if they wanted, perhaps looking at the habitats of their favourite, wild animal. Habitats of Animals | Ecosystems | DK Find Out
As summer seems to have arrived, the children are getting quite warm on the playground. Please send the children in with a bottle of water each day, this means we can ensure they drink enough to cope with the heat.
THE POOL IS OPEN! This means we should be swimming on Tuesday, please remember your swimmers and towels!
Have a lovely weekend!
What a wonderful start to the last half term of Year 3!
This week we have explored our new class text, Nen and the Lonely Fishermen. Using clues we made predictions about the text before reading the book. We were right in some cases! We will be learning this text to recite in our Rainbow Day assembly!
In maths, we have completed another unit on fractions and the children have shown such a good understanding of how to find fractions of amounts. Finding two thirds of 21 is quite tricky but...not for Oak class.
We began our new Geography unit by exploring the water cycle and how earth's water is used and where it is! We realised that some will be solid, some liquid and some in gas form.
Today,we had the most amazing trip to Meeth Quarry .We paddled in canoes and played canoe polo before jumping into the cool water! We then paddled our way across the water on one, GIANT paddleboard! I am beyond proud of each and every member of Year 3 (including our adult helpers, Chloe, Mr Dray and Mrs Armstrong!). It was a day I will never forget, thank you for being such brilliantly behaved, fun children.
Have a lovely weekend!
