This week in Year 3
In English this week, children have been planning their persuasive letters asking the three farmers to allow the Fox family to go free. By adding more relevant detail, children have learnt how to use conjunctions in order to extend their sentences. We have also been looking at the correct use of ‘a / an.’ Please ask you children to see if they can remember the rule.
In Maths, children have been subtracting 2 & 3 digit numbers using a variety of representations including number lines / part-whole method / place value counters & Dienes. Pupils have also learnt how to check their calculations by using inverse methods.
In Science this week, Year 3 have continued with the topic of ‘Animals including Humans’ and have been looking at what makes a healthy diet. Children have looked at the different food groups before planning their own healthy meal.
In History, we have been looking at ‘Skara Brae’ and where it is located in comparison to the Isle of Wight. Children have taken an imaginary journey through a stone age village to see how a stone age house was designed and used by the people of this time.
In Design Technology we have been working hard to design and create our own puppets based on the characters from ‘Fantastic Mr Fox. I am sure you will all be impressed with their creative skills.
Well done Year 3 for another fabulous week!
