Welcome to Year 3/4
Our Teacher is Mr. Funnell
Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs. Harper
This week we have been planning our pages for our class A-Z guide on holidays. We have used rhetorical questions, general information about the words we have selected and then specific information, recommending places to go. We have started to put these together on paper with photos and drawings. We have also learnt about plural nouns and how there are different ways to refer to more than 1.
In maths we have learnt how to layout column addition and, for those in year 4, practised using this method with further digits and multiple column carries. We have also challenged ourselves to line up decimal notation when adding money. We have also looked at missing digits from column addition calculations and we have made connections.
In our topic, West Meets East, we learnt about the provinces and territories of Canada. We have started to paint pictures of St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow and, as part of World Mental Health Day, we used colour and shape to portray mood and feelings.
Reader of the week is... Saphina
Puzzle... Name ten of the capitals of the provinces and territories of Canada. 5 mini merits available!
I look forward to meeting all parents next week at parent consultations.
