Poetry, Bar model and 5 ways to Wellbeing.

We’ve had another interesting week in Year 3. This week, a film crew were in to film the school, which we really enjoyed taking part in!

We participated in a 5 ways to wellbeing activity, thinking about ways to connect and how to be kind to each other. We discussed wellbeing, what it means to us and how to be healthy in our bodies and minds. Then, we created posters about the 5 ways of wellbeing. Here’s an example of one of them below.

In Literacy,  we have continued with the Iron Man story, but this week we have moved on to poetry. We looked at performance poetry and performed ‘The Coming of the Iron Man’ in the theatre, which we loved! We then wrote class poems, which you can read below.

In maths, we’ve been working on the bar model to solve word problems, finding the part and the whole and using column method to help us in addition and subtraction calculations. This culminated in using these methods to help us solve tricky word problems.

In Science, we learnt about the purpose of the skeleton and the different types of joints that help us to move.

Looking forward to another great week next week.

Enjoy your weekends!
