Another busy week of learning in Year 3. Thank you to the parents who came to look at the children’s learning.
This week was Anti-bullying week. Following on from the workshop last week, the children have been listening to different scenarios and explaining how they could show courage and kindness. The theme this year is one kind word. The children have been nominating other children who have been kind during the week. They wrote letters to each other to spread kindness. We made the word kind with our bodies.
In Maths, we have been rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. They have been drawing rounding mountains to show what multiples of 10 the numbers are between. We played a game where they had to add numbers to the rounding mountains and round them to the nearest ten.
In English, we read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and have been writing news reports on the story. The children have been learning to use inverted commas correctly when writing direct speech. We acted out different scenes from the story. The children made excellent freeze frames.
In Religion, we have made a class Advent calendars with a prayer inside each door. Then they retold the story of the Annunciation as a diary recount.
In PE the children have been learning skills to support them when playing tag rugby. They learnt a game called Shadow Shaker to develop their dogging ad marking skills.
Thank you for the creative rainforests! The children were delighted to show their art work to the class and they all look wonderful on display.
