Weekly Review - 11th June
The first week of Term 6 has seen Year 3 make a lot of new starts.
In English this week, we have started our new book – The Green Ship by Quentin Blake. We did our predictions for the book this time, in the form of art. Everyone created their own masterpiece for what they thought the children had stumbled upon in the woods. Once we started reading further into the book, we were very surprised to discover the ship! In class we did some drama to explore how the children would have felt stumbling onto this treasure and looked at the character of Mrs Tredegar in more detail.
Tying in with our new English text, we became our own explorers on Wednesday when we all enjoyed our first Forest School session. The children were very excited to have fun in the woods, and walked at lightning speed to make the most of the time! In the session the kids got the opportunity to: build dens, climb trees, forest art, digging and hammocks. I am sure some of you have seen the art pieces that came home on Wednesday ? Sadly the camera died so you’ll have to rely on the children’s stories to picture what fun we had this week.
Our new reading book of the term is – Anisha the Accidental Detective by Serena Patel. We made our own predictions and started to enjoy the amusing and creative story. Each day, we will read a different section of the book and use our inference, vocabulary and explanation skills.
In Maths this week, we recapped over the four operations (x, - , + and ÷) and the different vocabulary for these operations. We were then Maths detectives to identify what the word problem was really asking us to do. With this knowledge we then focused on missing number problems and identified what it was really asking us to do. To support our learning of times tables, we continued to have a go at Big Maths Beat That and beat our previous score.
We worked hard on our computer skills this week and designed our own E-Safety posters on the first day back considering how to stay safe online. We spoke about the importance of speaking to an adult if we are not sure of anything, and not sharing any personal information. In our computing lesson we began our coding module on Purple Mash and were able to write our own code to move our character with noise.
In RE with Mrs Bateup, the children identified what they would like to know about Sikhism and what they already know. This term, the children will be beginning their second unit on Sikhism. In Music this week, the children continue to look at a range of different music.
Plant update: we finally have some growth of our sunflower plants and maize seeds. It would be great to see some pictures of the children's corn at home if it is growing :)
Have a lovely weekend everyone,
Love Mrs Leach
