What another busy week in Year 3! We have continued to learn about our topic for this half term – Ancient City Adventure – as well as begin to prepare for the end of a very successful academic year. 

In Literacy, we have loved reading more of ‘Varjak Paw’, using the text as a stimulus for our own poems and diary entries. We have been challenging ourselves to include our ‘toolkit features’ checklist in our writing as well.

In Maths, we have used a range of strategies to find fractions of amounts as well as develop our reasoning skills when solving problems related to fractions.

In Science, we have investigated and discussed how magnets act as a non-contact force, using technical vocabulary in our explanations. 

In Art, we have explored the architecture at Ancient City and started to design the basic structure for our own sculptures. 

Have a great weekend.
