First I would like to say how lovely it was to meet so many of you on Tuesday at the meet the teacher session, I hope you found it useful. The slides are on our class blog for those who could not attend.
This week year 3 have continued to explore place value in maths and have been justifying their answers to tricky word problems.
They have written letters to Duncan as one of the crayons in the book ‘The day the Crayons Quit.’ We are looking forward to editing and performing them in class next week – check out our photos and videos next week!
The children were super busy on Wednesday, celebrating Roald Dahl day, sharing their books and learning about the B.F G. The day started with them learning the B.F.G.s Whizz Pop – Whizz Bang song and making B.F.G. ears, which they even wore during playtime. Thank you Fr Shaun for coming to visit us and joining us in the B.F.G. madness, your ears looked great!
Later on Wednesday, the children highlighted descriptive language in an extract from the B.F.G. and used the adjectives found to draw some wonderful pictures of the much loved characters. Finally, we made the B.F.G.s famous frobscottle (drink) and after sampling the emerald cocktail they wrote fabulous instructions using imperative (bossy) verbs.
We have also explored the types of rocks and soil found in Potters Bar and compared them to those found in the highlands. I’d like to say a special thanks to Dame Alice Owens geography department for loaning Y3 a very extensive and interesting rock and fossil collection, we can’t wait to find out more about them next week.
Home learning has been sent out today and is due back on Tuesday. Please see the letter inside the pink book, which explains how home learning will run. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Enjoy your weekend
