Year 3

Welcome to Class 3
Class 3 Blog

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!

 
 
 
Week 20.9.21
 
This week, we have been learning that during the war, people had to mend their clothes or make new ones out of old materials and fabrics. The children worked in pairs to make a small purse/bag by using the over and running stitch.
See below for some of our finished purses. 
 
 
 
 
Week 13.9.21
 
This week, we have been learning how to apply a expanded noun phrase and preposition into our writing. The children described some WW2 artefacts and then sketched them. They used a mark making for affect to create different tones and textures. The art work is still an ongoing project but here are a few examples of their amazing talent and their creative writing.  

 
Week 6.9.21
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.

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.  

Reading

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.
