We have had a very exciting week in Year 3.  The children ran their cross country races with enthusiasm and showed perseverance. The children enjoyed Roald Dahl day where they read and performed poems by Roald Dahl with Year 9 pupils.

In Literacy, we have been identifying verbs in poems and have also had opportunities to perform poems in class.  We have identified and used different tenses.  The children are able to explain the difference between the past, present and future tense.  Next week we will be focusing on using similes and alliteration.

In Numeracy, we have been learning to find 10/100 more and less than a 3 digit number. The children have been practising counting in multiples of 50 and 100.  They have estimated and written numbers on a number line.  Next week will be focusing on addition and subtraction.

In Science, we have designed our own healthy lunches explaining reasons for our choices.  The children discussed the importance of a balanced diet and how we could improve our eating habits. The children have learned the names of the main food groups that make up their diet.

In Topic, the children have been finding out the reasons why some animals are endangered.  They have learned about how deforestation, pollution and over fishing can contribute to animals becoming endangered.

In Art, we have been representing different animal prints with a range of media. We have also been studying photography of endangered animals, taken by the talented photographer ‘Joel Sartore’.
