Friday Catch Up
The children have produced amazing biographies this week and have worked hard to make their own sentences from their notes using features of the Year 3 writing curriculum. We are carrying on working hard at our number bonds for all numbers from 0 to 20 to help with our Year 3 objectives to add and take away using 3-digit numbers. The children have been very thoughtful in RE and composed great questions about the Creation Story.
We have had some discussions about football and working in teams. I'm going to support with that during my playground duties. We are starting computing next week. Please can the children think about how many devices they have in their home that have a computer chip in them and how they use them. I would love to see some photos on Dojo of these, please.
Please keep reading and practising times tables.
Spellings for this week are:
If you don't hear from me about times tables, they are the same as last week.
Thanks again for all your support.
Another great week! Well done Willow Tor for all your hard work. As well as our learning this week, we have talked a lot this week as well about looking after ourselves and each other.
Homework for this week:
Times Table Rock Stars - Tables as set by me and previously emailed out.
Spellings - (unless you receive an email from me with individual spellings) class, grass, pass, plant, bath, path, hour, move, prove and improve.
Research for Biographies
Next week, the children are writing biographies. The children can either choose a class person that I will have information on. If they have their own person that they would like to write about, that would be great. It doesn't need to be a famous person and could be their friend/parent etc. They are, however, responsible for researching the person this weekend ready for Monday. The research can be notes or printed out. They need to know the following:
Where and when were they born? What was the place like? Who lived there as well? Any other notable facts e.g. what were they like at school?
What do they do? Why did they choose that career? What is special about it? What is their best achievement?
What do they like to do in their spare time? Why do they like to do those things?
And lastly, if possible, could they please get a quote from the person?
I hope this makes sense and I hope you have a great weekend.
Thanks Miss Keen
We have had a busy week this week and the children, as ever, have worked super hard. In Science, we have been investigating light sources and reflections. We have started working on addition and subtraction this week as well as starting a new book in English. We are going to be writing biographies of our heroes over the new few weeks. In French, we are learning how to greet each other. We have finished our leaves of hope for PSHE.
It is cold at the moment. From this week, please can children wear jogging trousers or leggings for PE on Fridays.
Our learning question is: How do you make a shadow?
I will email out spellings and times tables.
Thanks so much for all your support and messages this week. I hope you have a a lovely weekend.
re to edit.
What a fantastic and very quick week it has been! It seems to have zoomed by.
The children have been learning about 3 digit numbers in Maths, practising writing stories and learning about where the Roman Fort was in North Tawton. We have worked hard and they have risen to the challenge putting in a huge amount of effort.
Homework will be spellings (I'll email out) and times table practising on Times Table Rocks Stars. If you are struggling to get on, please let me know. I will have set the times table to the one they need to practise (2 or 10). I will be looking imminently to move some children again.
For History, if you are out and about in the town and can take photos of historical buildings, or have some interesting historical knowledge about North Tawton, please do share on Class Dojo. We would love to see them.
I have shared some photos on Class Dojo. Please look there if you would like to see them.
I hope you all have a fab weekend.
