Weekly Review 15.6.18

Dear Parents,

Year 3 has gone ‘Varjak Paw’ mad!  We’ve been loving reading the book and have been drawn further and further into this brilliant story.

In Literacy, we have practised punctuating direct speech in our writing.  We have also revisited some of the writing genres we looked at earlier in the year.  Additionally, some classes have used their drama skills to create freeze-frames about the ‘7 skills of Jalal’ from Varjak Paw.

In Maths, we have learned about short (‘bus stop’) division.  We have used this and our times tables knowledge to make our divisions more and more efficient.  We have also looked at area and perimeter.

In Topic, we have compared old and modern Thailand, looking at pictures of places we know, like Charoenkrung Road, and seeing how they have changed over the past 100 years.  We used contrasting connectives to write informative sentences about the changes.

In Computing, we have started to investigate email. The we have practised writing an email to a fictional character and learnt all the technical vocabulary associated with electronic mail.  We have also furthered our understanding of E-safety, with lessons on our ‘Online Communities’.

In Science, we have looked at magnets in more detail, investigating which materials are magnetic and which are not.

In Art, we continued work on our Thai salas.  They are looking fantastic and we have really enjoyed using modroc to develop our designs.

As a final note, please check at home for any school books: these could be library books or guided reading books.  Teachers are giving out lots of house points for any books that are returned!

Have a great weekend,

Year 3 Team

The Way of Jalal 3JB

3JB enjoyed using drama techniques to explore the characters and events of the story ‘Varjak Paw’. Here we are, using freeze-framing to demonstrate the ‘Way of Jalal’. We have so far read about 6 of the 7 skills. We are looking forward to finding out what the final one is next week.

Year 3 – weekly review. Friday 8th June 2018

Dear Parents,
The children have enjoyed starting our new topic, ‘Ancient City’ having now finished all the work from ‘Inventors’. It has been a great week, with everyone working hard with lots of earning going on.

In Literacy, we have been studying the book, ‘Varjak Paw”. We have read a huge chunk of the story, creating a story board of the events so far as well as writing poems about the ‘monsters’ in the story. Some classes have looked at direct speech and diary entries. All this is preparation for writing part of our own story soon.

In Maths, we have been looking at efficient ways to multiply and divide accurately. The children are working hard to understand each step and be able to explain what his happening at every stage. We are working hard with our times tables and corresponding division facts.

In Topic, we have studied the different time periods during Thai history and put these in chronological order on our own time line, converting the year to the Buddhist era date too.

In Computing, we have started to investigate email. The children have practised writing an email to a fictional character and learnt all the technical vocabulary associated with electronic mail.

In Science, we have been learning about the scientist Michael Faraday. He was responsible for creating the first electric motor. Ask your child if you want to know anything more about him!

In Art, we have made our Thai temples using the junk that has been bought in. We have designed our models and then put them together using tape. Some are really creative and we look forward to the next step of adding modroc to them.
Have a great weekend,

Year 3 Team

Harry Potter!

Dear parents,

A quick note from the Year 4 team…

We are really excited for all the fantastic learning that will take place next year and are especially looking forward to our 1st term topic of Harry Potter! To help prepare yourself for the new term, we would love it if you could read the first Harry Potter book over the summer holidays – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The reason I mention this now, is because there are currently some copies of this book on sale in the Book Fair outside the PE department, which may make it easier to get a copy. There are also copies in the library which can be borrowed!

Many thanks for your support,

Alan Wright and the Year 4 team
