Weekly Update (Week ending 06.12.19)
---- Well done to the children who sang at Burstons or read poems at the carol concert - you represented your class and your school well and we are all proud! ----
This week we have planned, written and copied up our amazing poems. We wrote them about finding a strange small creature (which have included dragons, lava tigers and sea turtles!) in a normal place in our house. They are beautiful and I am going to bind them into a class book for them to keep. They can be very proud of how hard they have worked. In Maths we've explored division through partitioning. So, we split a number and regroup the tens and ones until both parts are divisible by the number in our equations (e.g. 96 divided by 8 can be partitioned into 80 divided by 8 and 16 divided by 8). It stretched our brains but none of us gave up! In Art we finished our Greek artwork by learning about Greek repeating patterns and using these to make our own 'Greek vase' tile from clay...it was very messy! We have loved the pantomime and are starting to get very festive...two weeks to go!
Next week ……...
Next week we are exploring riddles!
We will be moving onto word problems and changing topic to Length by the end of the week.
We will continue our unit looking at animals in relation to their habitats.
We will be continuing our Geography regarding earthquakes.
Keep using Times Table Rock Stars to support our Maths learning.
Homework (to be handed in on Wednesday)
Homework for this half-term has now been given out, see below for an electronic version.
Homework and Spellings go out on a Friday, and homework books are collected in on a Wednesday. When you practice your spellings for the week, use a page in your homework book (the green one!). When you do SAS (spellings and sentences), choose 5 of your spelling words to put into sentences - one or two per sentence. The sentences don't have to be related!
Reading should be recorded in the calendar section of the reading diary - none of the other sections are necessary. Simply open the calendar to the date you read with your child, and write their book title with your signature.
Spellings for this week are as follows, see below.
Spellings for Year 3
These spellings are statutory spellings - you just have to learn them, no spelling rule this week!
