This week in Year 3…
This week we have focussed our English learning on the book Fantastic Mr Fox. Children have used adjectives, alliteration and similes to describe characters in the book, making their writing more descriptive. In Guided Reading we have also focussed our learning on this book, selecting and retrieving information and developing our understanding of punctuation.
In Maths, we have been looking at 2D shapes and their properties. Children have become experts in using a ruler when precisely drawing shapes. We have found right angles around the classroom and in doing so have successfully named angles larger and smaller than a right angle. In addition we have also located and named horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines within shapes.
In Science, we have completed our topic on ‘Animals including Humans’ and the children are looking forward to beginning their new Science topic on Forces and Magnets.
