Weekly review 16th November 2018

Weekly Review – Friday 16th November

This week has all been about supporting ‘Anti-Bullying’ across the school. The children have been learning about how we can make a difference. Thanks for wearing odd socks on Monday to bring attention to this important cause. Please continue to encourage your children at home to support ‘Anti-Bullying’.

We had a fantastic assembly from 3DO this week, A big thank you and well done to all those involved.

In Literacy, we wrote’ our Pompeii diary entries from the point of view of one of 3 characters; gladiator, a slave and a senate. Children have started to write their own, using all the correct features.

In Numeracy, we have been representing the 4 x Table using arrays and other models. We then used our knowledge of this times table to solve division problems. The children used grouping and arrays to represent the answers. Next week we are looking at the 8 x table.

In Art, we have been looking at creating a repeated pattern using mosaic tiles. We created a design using symmetry to show repetition more clearly.

In Science, we have been learning how volcanoes are created and labelling the features of a volcano. We learnt about the Ring of Fire and how igneous rocks form  after an eruption.

Weekly Review – Friday 9th November

We have had another busy week in Year 3! We have also learned about Remembrance Day and how to show respect to those who have lost their lives due to war.

In Literacy, we have been using Fronted Adverbials to extend our sentences when writing about Pompeii. We also used drama to portray different characters from the Roman era, generating questions to ask based on their thoughts and feelings. The children really enjoyed putting themselves in the character’s shoes!

In Numeracy, we have been representing the 3 x Table using arrays and other models. We then used our knowledge of this times table to solve division problems. The children used grouping and arrays to represent the answers.

In Art, we have been working on our folding and cutting skills, creating small collages based on Roman objects. These skills will ultimately contribute towards to our final collage. Next , we will focus on mosaic art.

In Science, we have continued our new topic on rocks and soils. The children have studied the cross-section of the Earth. looking carefully at how each layer is formed and describing the temperature of each section. This will lead onto our work around ‘Volcanoes’.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

3RK Hot-Seating Roman Characters

In Literacy, we have been studying the story of Pompeii, using characterisation to portray different citizens. The children took on the role of a Senator, a Slave and a Gladiator. They generated appropriate questions for each character, thinking carefully about their thoughts and feelings. How would you feel escaping from a volcanic eruption?

Weekly Review 2nd November

We have had a very exciting week in Year 3, and have enjoyed getting stuck in to our new topic: The Roaming Romans!

Not only did we have our monthly celebration assembly and get to have a House dance off, but we also enjoyed concerts, assemblies and workshops with the singing group Ex Cathedra. Their fun songs and enthusiasm brightened up the week.

In Literacy, we have started work on diary entries, and are building up to writing about Pompeii and the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.  We will be working to include fronted adverbials in our writing, and different elements of characterisation to make it seem real!

In Numeracy, we have begun work on multiplication and division. We have started by understanding that multiplication is grouping and we have been representing this in many different ways. One creative child even used shoes to represent the 2 times table. These representations have then been used to help explain our reasoning and to help solve problems.

In Art, we are looking at collage, and how small pieces can build up to make big pictures. We have used the vocabulary ‘texture’, ‘material’, ‘colour’, ‘pattern’ and ‘layout’ to describe different collages.

In Science, we have started our new topic on rocks and soils. The children have shared what they already know and what they would like to learn. In classes we became rock detectives and went on the hunt for rocks around the school and identified similarities and differences between them.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.
