This week is Healthy Eating Week and as part of our science learning we have investigated the importance of staying hydrated and tasted water infused with cucumber or lemon to encourage us to drink more – lemon was the most popular choice in Y3. We enjoyed moving and being active together this week, running, dancing, beat the teacher PE challenges and karate and had lots of fun creating bar graphs that show which fruit and vegetables we have eaten each day. Now we understand that we should try to ‘eat a rainbow’ in order to stay healthy. We also celebrated kindness in the class and enjoyed some delicious banana bread made with whole grain flour.
In maths this week, we have been ordering and comparing numbers, while during fluency we have been balancing equations:
> means greater than. 56 > 45
< means less than. 45 < 56
= means the same as or equal to 4 + 2 = 5 + 1. This is also a balanced equation.
In English, we have written very exciting descriptive paragraphs about the character Stickman falling into a river! We have worked hard to include prepositions and interesting verbs to catch the readers attention. We will continue these stories next week.
Please look out for awards in the Newsletter!
Have a lovely weekend,
