Welcome to our Year 3 blog
Come here for weekly updates!
Week beginning 16th September 2019
What a week! We have been busy writing lots of poetry in Year Three this week. We have used similes and metaphors in our dinosaur poetry to help captivate the reader. In Maths we have been looking at number bonds to 100 and using our known number facts to help us. On Friday we had such an exciting day because it was out Palaeontologist Day! We all came to school dressed as explorers and scientists for a fun-filled day of dinosaur related activities. However, our morning was interrupted when Mrs Bloomfield burst into the hall and told us she had spotted an egg outside her classroom and was worried about how it had got there. We snapped into action and set out to discover a whole nest of eggs from a dinosaur! We found lots of clues on the playground and in Wildlife Way. Have a look at the photographs from the day!
Week beginning 9th September 2019
What a busy week in Year 3! Our first full week back has been very busy and we have really got stuck into our first learning theme. In Science we have been learning more about rocks and the three main types which are called sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. In Maths we have continued our learning on Place Value and have learnt how to use the greater than and less than symbols (> <) when comparing two three-digit numbers. In English we have been researching about different dinosaurs and writing non-fiction texts to create dinosaur fact files with the information we found out! We have also done Music, Computing, PE, PSHE, RE and lots, lots more!
Week beginning 2nd September 2019
This week we have been busy in Year 3! We have started our learning theme for this half term which is called 'Fossil Hunters'. We created our own fossil artwork using a wax resist technique in Art for our topic book covers. We had to carefully use a paint wash over the top of our dinosaur fossil which was drawn using oi pastels. In Maths we have been learning about place value and ordering numbers by looking at the hundreds, tens and ones. In English we have been trying to use powerful verbs in our writing to help make our writing more exciting for the reader. We have all enjoyed our first week back and are ready for a busy and exciting year in Year 3! We all feel very grown up now we are in Key Stage Two.
