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.

Halves and Doubles Adventure!

This week the children have been writing their own adventure stories based on a story by Anthony Brown. They have included good description, paragraphing and subordinate clauses.  In Maths they used their number knowledge to find halves and doubles of 2 digit numbers, focusing on odd numbers.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all. Thank you for your generosity at Christmas , we hope you all had a lovely break.

We understand there have been some issues with the Active Learn log ins for Amber class. We have reset them and tested  to ensure it now works.

This week we are writing similes and learning about time.

Homework is due in tomorrow, Friday 6th January.

Christmas fun

This week the children have been writing their own play scripts for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. They have included character and stage directions. All of the children really enjoyed their trip to the pantomime yesterday.

Homework will go out on Monday for the Christmas Holiday.

Two for a pound

This week the children have been learning about the features of a play script. In maths they have continued to use the grid method and trailing zero to multiply. Yesterday we had our charity fundraising sale. The children sold lots of the bird feeders and watering cans. All of the money is going towards our Hope UK project.


Describing and Multipling

In maths this week the children have really impressed us with their multiplication skills. They have been using different jottings and methods to solve them. This week in literacy we have been practising our descriptive writing for the story ‘Coming Home’ from this years Waitrose Christmas Advert. The children have described a robin and began to edit their work.
