Here are some pictures of Miss Burke opening her gift from Vermillion Class. She was  overwhelmed and emotional at such a thoughtful and personal gift. She cannot wait to have it up on the wall in her office for everyone to see.

As you can see the children and staff at school have made her final day as Miss Burke eventful and memorable dressed as a cupcake!

Thank you

Dizzy Dinosaurs

This week the children have been working very hard to create their pneumatic dinosaurs. They have worked with a partner to ensure the pneumatic system works and that it looks like a dinosaur. They have also written instructions for how to make a pneumatic dinosaur and evaluated their process.

Have a great Easter holiday and Miss Hesketh and soon to be Mrs Carter will see you on the 18th April 2017

It’s As Easy As ABC!

This week the children have been learning how to use a dictionary in literacy. They have been locating words and ordering words alphabetically when looking at the first, second or third letter! It has given them another great opportunity and resource to practise their spelling. In Maths we have revisited addition and subtraction through a Chilli Challenge! The children have been looking at different number sentences and using their mental maths knowledge and written methods to solve them.

Homework will be set next week for the children to complete over the Easter Holidays.

Newspaper writing

This week the children have been learning how to write a newspaper report. They have produced some great newspaper reports based on the missing jewel. In maths they have been calculating change using counting on. All of the children have now planted the seeds for our You Grow They Grow project.

The mysterious missing jewel

This week the children have loved taking part in creative writing week. The missing jewel and investigating the possible suspects has been very exciting. This mystery will continue into next week with the children using the events to write newspaper reports. Maths has seen the children continue to investigate measurements, converting cm to mm and vice versa.

Made to measure

This week the children have been measuring length in cm using a ruler. In literacy they have been learning about prepositions. They have been focusing on starting sentences with prepositions. The children have also been practising these spellings: build, building, believe, bicycle and busy.

Hurray for Haiku

This week the children have been using their knowledge of syllables to help them write a Haiku. In maths they have been using the fraction wall to compare fractions. The children have also been focusing on these year 3 and 4 words in their spelling lessons. It would be great to continue practising these at home.

accident, accidently, arrive, actual, actually and appear.

We will be focusing on 6 words a week this term and any extra work at home which encourages the children to use these words in sentences would be much appreciated.

Terrific Take One Picture

This week the children have been learning about how to use an and a correctly in sentences. In maths they have been learning about fractions and have enjoyed adding fractions together.

This morning it was lovely to see so many of you at our first Alban City Art Exhibition. I know the children in year 3 have really enjoyed their Take One Picture project.

We hope you all have a great half term break. After half term all children in year 3 will be designing and making a pneumatic dinosaur. Every child will need a shoe box for this. If you have a shoe box or two at home could you please bring them in after the half term holiday. Thank you.

Solving the Problem!

In literacy this week the children have been using their ICT skills to create an information booklet. They researched a dinosaur of their choice, gathering facts to build informative sentences to type their booklet. In Maths we have been using mental maths to solve problems. We played Total 99 using 7 rolls of a dice to reach the target number, solved problems to budget for a picnic and investigated palindromic numbers.

Super speech marks!

This week the children have been using speech marks in their writing. They have been working on using a new line for a new speaker. In maths we have been dividing using a blank number line. We have also been using our multiplication knowledge to help with dividing.
