This Week in Class 3
 
Class Trip: Look out for your email about our class trip. Please complete the online form before half-term!
 
Maths: Class 3 have been investigating how to multiply and divide 2-digit numbers by 1-digit number. We have used lots of different methods including counters, base ten, short multiplication and drawing.
 
Coming up next is investigating length and perimeter: how do we measure the length around a shape?
 
English: After spending the first part of the term writing poetry about animals in the rainforest, Class 3 will be using the book The Great Kapok Tree to write a narrative description using adverbs.
 
PSHE: Class 3 have been chosen to create a new society on the moon! We have democratically decided to call this new society Chocolate Moon and have been exploring the values that will unpin our society, such as animal and human welfare, environmentalism, the living wage and free healthcare and education. The class have now written and recorded their candidate speeches to become the Prime Minster of Chocolate Moon and next week we will have a Polling Day to elect our chosen candidate.
 
Computing: How do you code? The children haven been using a range of programme to learn how to create a basic coding sequence and will be working towards coding their own interactive rainforest.
