Year 3 have started to investigate the process of multiplication this week, starting with doubling numbers. I was super impressed with the way the children developed their understanding and grappled with bigger numbers!
Check out these amazing spellers who equaled or improved on their previous weeks score! Clearly a lot of hard work has gone into practicing spellings this week and you should be extremely proud! Keep up the hard work! 😊
Today 3LG have been extremely excited to welcome an expert visitor into school. We talked all about the Second World War and the children asked lots incredible questions.
As part of our work towards creating our final product we have been thinking about why it is important to share stories from World War Two. We cannot wait to start writing about all the information we have learned today!
This week during our Flexible Friday crew session year 3 enjoyed taking part in scary Halloween Kahoot quizzes. I wonder who has the fastest finger in Crew Jenkins?? 😜
This week 3LG have been learning all about rationing and wartime food. To finish up our learning we made traditional WW2 bread, using only what people would have avaiable at the time.
We have spent the morning following a recipe, measuring igredients, mixing and kneeding dough.
We can definitely think of worse ways to spend a Friday than making the “best bread ever”
Flexible Friday is where Yr 3 children choose different activities to complete with their crew. Today Crew Jenkins and Crew West played dodgeball against each other. Although each crew wanted to win, it was lovely to see positive sportsmanship both during and after the games with children cheering for each other, congratulating one another and shaking hands. It was lovely to watch! 😊
During immersion week, Year 3 began their expedition learning all about World War Two. Check out our beautiful artwork creating a silhouette of the London skyline during the Blitz. Here we used water colours to paint the background and drew the skyline on black paper! How effective do they look?
This week Y3 have been learning all about place value in maths. We have been learning all about hundreds, tens and ones and it would only have been fair to kick this topic off by writing all over the tables.
Yesterday, Y3 had a wonderful afternoon in our first community event. We were very excited to invite parents and carers into school to hold a games afternoon, taking part in games of bingo and even trying our hand at “Beetle Drive”, a popular game among children during World War Two. Thank you so much to all those who attended.
Yesterday Y3 spent the afternoon having a blast playing games and raising money for charity. It wouldn’t be a games afternoon without a highly competitive game of Bingo and we even stayed true to our expedition playing “Beetle Drive”, a game that became popular among children during World War Two.
