Year 3

Weekly Review – Friday 21st September

Year 3 at the World Peace Day Ceremony

Weekly Review – Friday 21st September

This week in Year 3 has seen us watch the first class assembly of the year from 6JB, who gave us a good reminder on what is ‘respect’, to celebrating World Peace Day, where the children gathered as a whole school for a ceremony. Well done all for working so hard this week and enjoy a well deserved restful weekend.

In Literacy, we have continued our work on poetry, consolidating our learning from last week on similes, onomatopoeia and alliteration and expanding our understanding of rhythm and rhyme. This has been done through the use of the rhyming book ‘The Ugly Five’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. The children are now in the process of planning and writing their own poems using these skills.

In Numeracy, we have moved on to adding and subtracting. This is building on the work we have done with place value and using much of the knowledge developed over the past few weeks. The week begun by looking at adding and subtracting multiples of 100 and using the base 10 blocks and bar models to support the learning. As the week has progressed we have moved to adding and subtracting 1s from three digits numbers including crossing ten boundaries. This has been supported by the use of base 10 blocks and graphical representations.

In Science, we have begun looking at the skeleton. The children drew around themselves and then drew in what they thought their skeleton looked like. They have learnt the function of the skeleton and can name a number of the bones.

In Topic, we have researched different charities and how they support endangered species and how we can help the charities. We also discussed World Animal Day which will be happening on 4th October.

In Art, we have continued representing different animal prints with a range of media and started experimenting with printing using a range of objects and items, such as fruit and vegetables.

Thank you for your continued support.

3OB Celebrate Roald Dahl Day!

Last Friday, 3OB celebrated Roald Dahl Day by reading a selection of his ‘Revolting Rhymes’ with Year 9. Not only did we enjoy laughing at Dahl’s rhymes but we also practised and performed one poem of choice in smaller groups. To engage the audience, we used clear and loud speaking voices as well as included actions for different parts of the poem! Have a look at us in action…

Weekly Review Friday 14th September 2018

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’.

3RK Roald Dahl Day!

Today marked the birthday of a famous author we all know and love – Roald Dahl! The children learned about his life history and performed some of his ‘Dirty Beasts’ poems with the Year 9 children. It was great to see Senior school mix with the Junior school children and for them to perform together!

3JS Endangered Teddy Photo Ark

Another fun-packed week in 3JS. Our study of endangered animals saw us mimic the photography of Joel Sartore, an acclaimed photographer who has created the PhotoArk website to raise awareness of endangered species through his photographs. See below some of our efforts in recreating shots in his style.

3DO have been learning about endangered animals in Topic

3DO have been classifying animals according to their levels of threat. We were shocked to see so many animals that are critically endangered. But, we learnt the giant panda is now only vulnerable.
