Autumn 2 Week 4

Another busy week in Year 3.

In Religion, we made a class Advent calendar. Behind each door is a prayer written by the children. The children painted pictures after reading the story of Mary visiting Elizabeth and they wrote their own litany. We have been practising our songs for the Advent service.  Children’s readings have been sent home so please practise them.

In Science, we planned and did an investigation to find out the best surface to move a plastic tub across. The children predicted, observed and recorded their results.

I have been impressed with the children’s newspaper reports this week. They have written their first two paragraphs using speech, conjunctions and prepositions. I look forward to reading their final reports.

In Maths, we have been explaining how some number facts can help us to solve others. The children have been developing their explaining and reasoning skills.

In History, we have continued our learning on Stone Age. The children used a picture and a story to describe what they have learn from it.

In PE, we took part in karate and building our skills for tag rugby.

Thank you to all the parents that supported their children making the rainforests, the class looks fantastic! If your child has not made one, please complete as we would like to add a photo to their topic books.
