Dynamic diaries

This week in maths we have been exploring subtraction with regrouping.  The children have worked on a variety of problems including some missing digits problems!  Today we wrote some fantastic diary entries about the life of a Roman soldier using some specific key vocabulary as well as emotive language.

We have been busy completing our Roman mosaics this week using coloured paper.

Marvellous Myths

Welcome to the new term!  We are very excited about our new topic, the Romans, and we are just finishing putting together our class book of myths.  Come in and read them sometime!

Maths has involved lots of addition problems and methods this week.  Do have a look at the back of your homework book to check the column and regrouping method we have been learning.

Here are some pictures of our mosaics which we created using glass tiles.

Reminder: Homework was issued today and is due back on Wednesday 10th October.

 

Thank you

Thank you so much for all the kind words, cards and gifts from the Year 3 team. We have had a great year! We wish you all a great holiday. All the best in Year 4.

Home work for the summer from the Year 4 teachers

Over the holidays we would like you to practise your times tables up to 12×12. We look forward to seeing your strategies and speed in September.

Please also bring along a picture or postcard of somewhere you visited or something you did during the summer. We look forward to getting to know you all in September!

From year 4.

Sports Day

Thank you to all of you who came and supported us on sports day. The children participated well and enjoyed the activities.

In Maths we have been making, naming, describing and sorting 3D shapes.

 

In English we have been writing our own versions of the poem, ‘The Sound Collector’ by Roger McGough.

 

Recorder Concert

This week the children have completed their recorder lessons with a performance to Year 2. They sounded wonderful and performed a number of different pieces. I’m sure they were an inspiration to the current Year 2 classes.

Digital art

This week in maths, we have been exploring place value with decimal numbers, regrouping decimal numbers and comparing numbers with 1 decimal place.

 

 

In English we have been writing in the present perfect tense.

 

As part of our Computing curriculum, we have been looking at Quentin Blake style illustrations after reading the ‘Magic Finger’ together and producing our own illustration using digital art. Here are some examples.

   

 

The children were set challenges to develop their skills, in collaborating to achieve a goal. They had lots of fun and they worked well together.

Visit to Celtic Harmony Camp

We had an informative and enjoyable time on our trip at Celtic Harmony Camp. Hopefully the children have told you all about it!

 

 

This week in English we wrote a recount of our trip to Celtic Harmony Camp.

 

Book day was a great success. As a class we looked at the book ‘The Lost Happy Endings’. They produced their own collage in response to the story. They also spent time reading their own books that they brought into school for the day.

 

In Maths we have been finding unknown wholes from known tenths and finding unknown tenths from known wholes.

Dick Whittington

We hope you all enjoyed the performance of Dick Whittington. Well done to all the children who worked hard to learn their lines and songs.

 

In English we have been writing an alternative ending to, ‘The Little Red Riding Hood’. In maths we have been learning how to write tenths as a decimal.

 

Trip to Celtic Harmony on Monday

It is due to be very hot!

The children will need:

Suntan cream applied before school.

Sun hats to wear

Trainers would be the most suitable footwear

A packed lunch with plenty of drinks (water with a screw top so that they can have regular sips if required) No fizzy drinks or chocolate please. Please send as little packaging as possible so there is as little to carry as possible.

 

Traditional tales continued…

This week in English the children have been fascinated by some alternative versions of traditional tales, which included finding out the story of the three little pigs from the wolf’s point of view. They wrote their own postcards from the witch’s point of view in Hansel and Gretel and wrote the story of Jack and the Beanstalk from the giant’s point of view.

In maths they have been using column addition and subtraction, involving money, to calculate and problem solve.

 

Open evening

Thank you to all the parents who came to open evening on Monday. We hope you enjoyed looking through your children’s work. I’m sure you’ll agree they have been very busy this year!

Year 3 Performance

We look forward to seeing you all at the performance of Dick Whittington and his cat, on Wednesday morning.
