Week 4th October 2021
Year 3 have had a very busy week. We started the week with a Home Front day. The children learned about rationing and used their mathematical skills to work out an allowance for an average sized family. They experienced life in a 1940's kitchen and baked an Eggless sponge cake which was surprisingly delicious! Tuesday was our class Harvest Festival. The children wrote poems and whilst half the class were swimming the other half created some very effective seasonal pictures.
Thank you to everyone for their generous contributions, the local food banks were very grateful
A big shout of to everyone who has brought in their topic homework. There has been such a high standard of work and it has been lovely to see the children’s creative side with so many amazing Andersons’s shelters, medals and drawings. Well done Class 3!
This week in maths, we have been using our knowledge of place value to represent numbers to 1000. On Wednesday, we created place value monsters. Here are a few examples.
This week in maths, we have been learning to add 3-digits to 1-digits. You have homework on Education City to complete. In literacy we have been learning how to write a subordinate clause using AWHITEBUS conjunctions. If you need a little reminder before having a go at the activities on Education City, why not listen and sing along to the AWHITEBUS conjunction song.
Please try and read for at least 10- 15 minutes every day. Reading includes Bug Club, newspapers, comics and magazines as well as a bedtime story. You now have been give your reading diary which they should have taken home. We would encourage parents to regularly use as this helps us know what you have enjoyed reading and also gives you points towards your reading awards.
Please make sure reading diaries are in school every Monday.
Choose one activity from the activity menu each fortnight and bring it to school by the Thursday. Activities should take approximately 30 minutes (15 minutes each week). Some activities may take longer. The following week fortnight you must choose an activity from a different section. All the activities are related to our WW2 topic. You have the choice to present your work in whichever way you prefer. This could be a poster, model, drawing, a PowerPoint or however you choose! Be creative! Please email any electronic work to the class email address. Class3@mill-lane.oxon.sch.uk
