We’ve had a fun and busy first week back after Easter and Year 3 have been working really hard.
In English, we’ve been looking at the book ‘The Tunnel’. We did a ‘snowballing’ activity, writing advice to a character in the story and we wrote a suspenseful paragraph based on part of the text. Next week we are continuing with the story, looking into the characters and using conjunctions in our writing.
In maths this week we have focused on multiplying by 10 and multiplying multiples of 10. We used base 10 to build the calculations and explained our working out using a speaking frame. Next week we will be looking at formal written methods for multiplication.
We began our new history topic of The Romans. We thought about what we know so far and devised valid questions that we want to find out. We then used the internet and information books to research the information. Next lesson, we will be looking at how the Romans took over from the Celts in Britain.
Homework is starting again this week and is on Google classroom.
