7th December Weekly Review

Weekly Review – 07.12.18

This week

In Literacy, we looked at the features of persuasion. Be careful, they may start using some of these these techniques on you!They applied their knowledge of The Gladiator Games to plan and write a persuasive letter.

In Numeracy, we have been converting measures. The children have been able to convert between mm, cm and m and were able to apply this in their QR code treasure hunt.

In Science, we were able to apply our knowledge of rocks to organise them into groups by identifying similar properties. The children used excellent observation skills to recognise the differences and similarities.

In Art, some classes were finishing off their colour wheels, while others have moved onto their final piece. A magnificent mosaic depicting a Roman scene.

In Computing, the classes have continued their excellent work on PowerPoint and have added animations to their slides. The children thoroughly enjoyed this addition to the presentations and had objects whizzing around appearing from nowhere on their slides.

Notices and dates for your diaries:

  • Celebration Assembly Monday 10th December, lesson 6  – please bring/wear house shirts on this day.
  • Tuesday 11th December – Year 3 Roman Day. Children will need to come dressed in Roman costume so start organising outfits! Parents are welcome to join us from 1.30pm for the Roman parade/battle march on the playground outside of the Prep building.

Have an enjoyable and restful weekend.

3OB Make Chocolate Rocks!

This week, 3OB have been exploring the rock cycle in Science in order to identify how different rocks are formed. We then applied our learning to create our very own sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic chocolate rocks!

Weekly Review: Friday 30th November

Weekly Review – 30.11.18

This week the children have continued to enjoy learning about The Ancient Romans and have been sharing some amazing home learning, including some fantastic Roman shields and model volcanoes.  

In Literacy, we have been learning how to take part in debates effectively. We have looked at the pros and cons of gladiator fighting and made notes to support arguments for and against this topic.  We have also been learning to use persuasive language in their debates and give reasons for their views.

In Numeracy, we have been learning to measure length accurately with a ruler using the correct units of measurement (cm and mm).  We have estimated the lengths of various classroom objects and explained their reasoning for their estimates. Finally, we have recorded their length estimates and checked them using a ruler.

In Science, we have been learning to describe the properties of rocks. We drew, labelled and wrote short descriptions of different rocks. We have been learning igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks and how they are formed.

In Art, we have continued to make our own colour wheel collages. We particularly enjoyed looking for various textures and colour shades to enhance our work. We chose primary and secondary colours for our collage wheel.

In Topic, we have started to research famous Roman Emperors. We have looked at their success and achievements. We have made our own Roman Emperor fact files and included interesting facts.

Notices and dates for your diaries:

  • School will be closed on Wednesday 5th  December.
  • Celebration Assembly Monday 10th December, lesson 6  – please bring/wear house shirts on this day.
  • Tuesday 11th December – Year 3 Roman Day. Children will need to come dressed in Roman costume so start organising outfits! Parents are welcome to join us from 1.30pm for the Roman parade/battle march on the playground outside of the Prep building.

3OB – An Introduction to Measurement and Length

This week, 3OB have started a new topic on measurement and length in Maths. Our learning started with a discussion about the term ‘length’ and the units in which we measure length. We then used rulers to accurately measure different objects around the classroom in centimetres and millimetres. Take a look at us in action…

Happy Loy Kratong – 3JS

Weekly Review – Friday 23rd November

We have had another fantastic week of learning as well as celebrated Loy Krathong. Yesterday, we wore our traditional Thai clothes to pay our respects and show gratitude to the goddess of water. In class, we made beautiful lotus-shaped rafts decorated with flowers to take home and participate in our own personal celebrations with family.

In Literacy, we revisited our previous genre of writing – non-chronological reports – to demonstrate how much we had learnt and could remember from this unit of work. This time, we applied our toolkit features to research and write an informative report on all aspects of the Romans from their daily life to their Empire.

In Maths, we focused on the 8 times table and used our previous learning about the 4 times table to support us with our fluency. We also had great fun learning about Roman numerals, exploring the school for numbers that we could represent using the Roman numeral equivalent.

In Art, we have studied the colour wheel to develop our understanding of primary and secondary colours. We then used this to create our own collage-version of the colour wheel.

In Science, we have been developing our understanding of rock formation. Using varying types of chocolate, we have explored how different rocks are formed due to heat and pressure and made our very own ‘chocolate rocks’.

In Topic, we have studied how the Roman Empire grew and used maps/atlases to locate the areas that were conquered and ruled by the Romans.
