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 our very own Caine’s fair in 2 weeks and are busy designing and making!

In Literacy, we have been learning about explanation texts. We have been thinking about the features, learnt about cause and effect conjunctions, labelled diagrams and are presently planning to write our very own invention!

In Maths, we have been learning all about division. The children have divided a 2 digit number by a one digit number, including exchanging! The concrete resources have really helped deepen the children’s’ understanding. Some classes have been learning about scaling

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 been learning about algorithms and using this information to create our own, which we will use for our very own arcade games.

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
