Dear Parents,

We have enjoyed another action-packed week at school. Time really does fly when you’re having fun- there are only two weeks left of this half term to go! We are all looking forward to seeing each other’s Long Term Projects next week and look forward to seeing you all at our Invention Fair on Thursday.

In Literacy, we have completed our work on instructions and have started to learn about explanation texts. We have been thinking about the features and have enjoyed linking our learning with our Invention theme.

In Maths, we have enjoyed continuing to work on our addition and subtraction, trying out different methods and applying our knowledge in practical problem solving questions and fun scenarios, such as the Blockbuster game.

In Topic, we have been considering the impact that various inventions have had on our developing world. We had to order different inventions from those which had the least to the most impact. Some of us completed consequence wheels, considering how the world would be different today if some of the inventions had never happened.

In Computing, we have continued to use ‘Wallace’s Workshop’ to develop problem solving and computing skills.

In Science, we have been learning about seed dispersal. We have displayed the different ways that seeds are dispersed in a poster.

In Art, we have continued to learn about how we can create different tones using hatching and cross-hatching. We tried to replicate some of the work of Leonardo de Vinci, who used this method regularly in his work.

Have a great weekend,

Year 3 Team
