Year 3 Blog

And they lived happily ever after... hold on, its a different story!

We have had a wonderful week in year 3 and have thoroughly enjoyed beginning a new book in our literacy lessons. We were all very excited to discover the name of our story after uncovering many clues! We have made storyboards of the story, and next week we will be writing a retell using adverbs.

In maths, we have been multiplying hundreds by ones, and have practised explaining our knowledge to our partners. We have also looked at arrays and used them to help us calculate the answers to multiplications.

See you next week for our final week of this half term! It has been a month of many birthdays so far, and that doesn't stop this week!

We hope you have had a lovely weekend!

Happy Hawthorn and Jolly Juniper

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

This week has been a brilliant (if a little poorly) week at school. All the children in Hawthorn class were given headteacher's award for their efforts in their work this week- well done! They have worked so hard with their writing and maths, and are wonderfully caring. They should be proud.

This week, we have been continuing to write our Howard Carter newspaper reports. The children have been exploring how to start their sentences in different ways and how to make their writing more interesting. In maths, we have started to focus on the column method for multiplication, which all the children have grasped amazingly! We hope they impress you with their knowledge in their homework this week!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend parents evening on Tuesday and Thursday. It is always lovely to talk to parents and keep you updated on your child's progress.

See you after a relaxing weekend!

Miss B and Mrs W

Asquith Rocks!

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

Our Tutankhamun newspapers are shaping up nicely! Visit again next week where you will be able to see some brilliant examples.

This week we were excitingly given the opportunity to take part in Rock Steady workshops, a musical tutoring group who teach children how to be in their own rock band. Children get the opportunity to learn the guitar, keyboard, drums and get vocal coaching. The children were amazingly excited about this! 

We are looking forward to seeing you at parents evening on Tuesday or Thursday next week!

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss B and Mrs W

The mystery of Tutankhamun

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

This week, we have been learning about King Tutankhamun, ready to write a newspaper report about the discovery of his tomb. ~The children have loved beginning to learn a song about King Tut... why not ask them to hear some?

In literacy, we have been looking at newspaper reports and have picked out the key features of the reports. Watch this space to see some of the fantastic reports we will be writing over the next two weeks.

In maths, we have started to look at multiplication and have been practising recognising multiplication as equal groups of the same number. We will be continuing to look at multiplication over the next week, and will be moving on to using the column method to multiply.

We have started out new class book of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone this week, and the children are absolutely loving every second! Wizards in the making...

Have a wonderful weekend, whatever the weather!

Miss B and Mrs W

Feeling hot hot hot!

joanne on: Year 3 Blog

What beautiful weather we are having and are still being treated to yet another sunny weekend! I'm starting to believe that the weather reporters do know what they're talking about! We have been very lucky and kept cool in our air conditioned classroom ;)

This week we were absolutely fantastic in our class assembly! Thank you to everyone who came and supported us, we hope you enjoyed looking at our hard work! We have loved our Egyptian topic and now know lots of facts about it. We're sure you'd agree that we certainly have some budding actors and actresses in our presence too!

This week was also an opportunity to meet our new teachers and spend time in our new classrooms. Hawthorn went to Mrs Trolley for two days and Juniper went to Mr Holt. The children had lots of fun meeting their new teachers, but it was lovely to have them back in year 3 ready for a 'normal' week next week. With this in mind, this week's homework is to write a letter to our new class teacher to introduce ourselves. You could include: your favourite lessons, your family information, your favourite things, and any interesting or important facts about yourself that you think your teacher may like to know.

This week's spelling are:











Happy practising! I must apologise for the spellings not being marked this week- they will be marked on Monday!

Have a lovely, sun filled weekend. I look forward to hearing about your fun in the sun on Monday.

Miss B
