This week we watched Dr Ranj’s Virtual Assembly about washing our hands. We watched a great experiment which demonstrated the power of soap, maybe the children could recreate at home for their families. We then all demonstrated how well we can wash our hands.
This week we completed our printing work by adding another layer to our printed designs. This final layer added the details that we had observed in the leaves whilst sketching them during our research. We also started our 100 day challenge around the world with Daily Mile, we plan to visit lots of famous landmarks along the way.
This week we raised money for Gold Geese and we all looked so bright and wonderful and enjoyed refining our skipping techniques as well. We have enjoyed reading and writing poetry and have written our own poems on the theme of vision as part of #nationalpoetryday about our school on a autumn day.
This week we have been learning how to recite and we performed The Bug Chant to the rest of year 3 with actions. We have been looking at how words rhyme and using the actions to help us remember the stanzas.
We have worked hard this week on revising number lines and the positioning and ordering of numbers. Also using our part-whole models to break numbers down and add or subtract 10s or 100s from these models. All the children have been trying so hard with their Times Table Rock Stars since starting in year 3, don’t forget to log in and practise online as well.
This week has been short but we have definitely managed to talk a lot about our expectations for learning and what we are going to try and achieve during our time in year 3. We all had a go at applying our positive growth mindset to improving our skipping skills and inspired by the stories we have shared.
This week Seagull class have been brilliant, they have settled well into year 3 life and all the new routines it brings for them. They have supported each other and myself in easing us all back into school life with lots of positive praise. They have impressed us with their work ethic and desire to learn more and many interesting conversations have been had during the week about our learning.
