Year 3 16.10.20 Autumn 1 Homework
word maps – spider diagrams 16.10.20
This week has been another brilliant week! I have really started to notice the stamina building in many of the children and they are really trying hard.
We have continued to work on multiplication this week.
Some children are working on “groups of” objects and amounts from the Year 2 syllabus. We have also revised our 5 timestables out of order and knowing the division alternative. Some children are continuing into the Year 3 objectives with timestables of 3’s, 8’s and 4’s while some have mastered this and now applying their knowledge in problem solving and missing number challenges.
In English, we have been learning how to use and create non-chronological reports. We have written about pandas, prehistoric beasts, significant people from black history month and the Bronze Age.
Some children are stick mastering Y1 objectives with spelling, sounds and punctuation. Most children are working within Year 2 writing objectives and need to refine these whilst starting to be introduced to Year 3 objectives such as paragraphing, fronted adverbials and starting sentences differently. We are also working hard on handwriting and spelling here in a year 3 with daily practice.
Our mini adventure has led us to the Bronze Age where we have been looking at the main differences between the eras. Looking at how evidence and fossils tell us about the past, we dissected our own coprolites and discussed how we knew they were from the Bronze Age.
We have also been looking at baptism and godparents. Thank you so much for your wonderful pictures- the children were so excited to share their posters and experiences!
I look forward to our last week being filled with lots more fun and learning opportunities!
Have a great weekend
