Welcome to Year 3!
Please enjoy looking at the Year 3 class blog and following our journey over the year. Our blog will be updated weekly to show a snapshot of what we have been up to that week.
News of the Week
We have been so busy this week. We have been working on our ability to unpick a text and find key facts and information. We have also been looking at practically representing numbers up to 999. We worked on this in teams and it was a lot of fun. We have also been looking at using different textures and tones in our sketching work and lots of us really enjoyed taking our time to experiment with different approaches when sketching a simple landscape.
We have had a great time in year 3 this week. We have been really enjoying our reading and enjoyed sharing our books with each other during our class book club. Lots of children in our brilliant class have put themselves forward to be part of our school parliament. Each of them had the opportunity to tell the class why they would represent their class well and we then voted. I can't wait to see who wins! We also spent our PE lesson focusing on finding space in team games. We played football, hockey, rugby and netball to develop this skill.
We have been so busy this week. We have launched our learning in all of our subjects and the children have shown just how much they can remember from Year 2! Mrs Gemmell would be so proud of them, I know I am! In Science, we will be learning about the human body and started by learning the three main functions of the skeleton. We have also looked at finding patterns to do with hand size and height across our class. We found some brilliant exceptions to the general rule and discussed these at length.
What a great first week back! It was brilliant getting to see everyone reconnecting and having fun with their old friends and even making some new ones. We worked very hard this week and impressed Mr Bull with our fantastic attitude to learning. One of the highlights of the week was our Smarties Maths session. We were asked how much Maths can we get out of a box of Smarties. You'd be amazed at what we were able to come up with.
