Welcome to Year 3!
My name is Miss Edwards and I will be teaching year 3 this year along with our teaching assistant Ms Catana. I am excited to be working with year 3 where we will be taking part in fun and interactive activities to develop the children's learning. This term our topic will be based on Myths and Legends.
Our Christian value this term is Generosity.
Jeans for Genes - 21/9/18
This week we will be focusing on poems based on the Sorting Hat in Harry Potter. The children will be looking at how J. K. Rowling used a poem to bring this character to life. The children will be attempting to write their own poem based on what they have learnt throughout the week.
In Maths we will be continuing to look at place value. We will start to look at more problem-solving questions relating to place value and how to use information to locate a number on a timeline. We will also continue to order numbers and identify 10 and 100 more/less than a given number.
PE will be on Mondays and Wednesdays but please make sure PE kits are in school each day.
This week the maths homework booklets will be handed back out this Monday ready to be handed in the following Monday.
The spelling this week is listed under week 3.
In year 3 we are building our confidence in attempting questions in class - it is OK to make mistakes! We look at the work the children have completed at the end of the day and discuss our ideas from the lessons. We celebrate mistakes as these help us to learn and makes our work more exciting. We also try to work independently and try every question but we also know there is help if we need it. In year 3 we have a happy and challenging environment where we take part in different activities to help us enjoy our learning.
Stars of this week are Hannah and Anton! Well done!
This week we our Dojo winner was James- Well done!
This week we have been working on our writing based on setting descriptions - the children have been describing the Great Hall.
In Maths the children continued looking at the place value of three-digit numbers. The whole class has been working hard this week and I look forward to seeing their work next week.
