It has been another very busy week. The children have written about where people live in geography and included what they learnt about North Tawton from their geography fieldwork (they took the photo below). They have been reading our new book The Paperbag Prince and learning all about how to use adverbials to tell a reader where and when something happens.
In maths, we have continued to learn how to add and takeaway using column method. We will practise this a lot this year as it will take some time to get fluent with it. Next week, we will start our unit on multiplication and division. I have been very impressed at how the children are doing with their times tables. Our aim is to learn the 2, 5, 10 3, 4 and 8 times tables by the end of the year.
In science, we have learnt about recycling and why we recycle. The children have had a good look at some objects that we recycle and can begin to give reasons why we do this. We have continued to learn about tag ruby in PE and in PSHE we have started thinking about what respect means.
It was great to get so many completed home learning books today. Please make sure home learning is back in on Thursday and that the reading diaries are coming in every day. Thank you!
Hope you had a fab end to the week.
Thanks for all your support.
Miss Keen and all the year 3 staff.
We have had a busy week this week - as ever! We walked through the town on Tuesday afternoon looking at lots of the local amenities and making a survey of them. The children were very well behaved. We are going to use our notes to produce a booklet about North Tawton in Geography. We have been thinking a lot about where settlements are and why we choose to live where we do.
The children have made a fantastic return after half term. We have started learning about Dudley, the techno-wizard dog, and looking at the use of technical language in a non-fiction book. We have continued to add and subtract using three-digit numbers and looking at different methods. In computing, we are learning all about animation. We will make some stop-frame animation and some animation on using a computer programme next week. In science this week, we learnt how some raw materials can be changed to make synthetic materials. We learnt all about making glass. A big thank you for all the lovely and interesting glass objects.
On Tuesday next week, we are hoping to walk around the town and look at the local amenities for our field work in geography. We will complete a guide to North Tawton for our geography work.
Please keep reading at home and recording this in the back of the Home Learning books. Home learning will come out on Friday. Please return by Thursday next week.
Hope you have a fantastic weekend. A big thank you to the children for all their hard work.
