3MF is the right place to come if you need shelter during a bombing raid. The Anderson Shelter homework projects are fantastic and it is clear that so much effort has gone in to them. The test, however, will come on Wednesday next week when we see whether they stand up to our bombing raid! Look out for videos and photos next week. 

Christmas Enterprise will soon be here so the little elves in 3MF have been very hard at work preparing and making. Before we could start making our wrapping paper, tags and bags, we had to use our maths skills to accurately measure card to work out how many tags we could cut from a sheet. We also had to calculate how much individual sheets of card and paper cost in order to calculate our price list and explore potential profits. We hope you will join us on Wednesday to purchase our exclusive bags, tags and wrapping!

This week, our attendance was 95.2% which wasn’t enough to earn us an attendance certificate.  We earned 9 handshakes this week.

This week we have been exploring doubling to see how knowing facts from the two times table can help us learn facts from the four times table. We are working hard to learn our x3 and x4 tables before we move on to the 8’s. You can use the link below to practise online.

We have completed writing the text for our persuasive leaflets for Beaumanor Hall this week. Using features of AFOREST, we have attempted to encourage people to visit and take part in the fabulous World War Two themed  activities. Next, we will use ICT to create the finished leaflet, which we intend to send to Beaumanor Hall. 

Don’t worry if you haven’t yet finished your Anderson Shelter homework. Bombing won’t commence until next week! Look out for photographs. 

This week, our attendance was 96.7%.  We earned an impressive handshake total of 14 this week but it wasn’t enough for us to take the trophy.

After completing our cold task on multiplication and division, we have been practising the 3 times table this week. We have loved playing the race car game; striving to beat our partner to the end of the track by answering times table facts. 

We have been sorting sentence types this week with a focus on co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions. Using photos from Beaumanor Hall, we wrote sentences about the activities using appropriate conjunctions. 

This week, our attendance was 98.6% which earned us an attendance certificate.  We earned an impressive handshake total of 17 this week but it wasn’t quite enough for us to take the trophy.

20th November 2017

This week we have had to be very persuasive! Following on from our visit to Beaumanor Hall last week, we have looked at how we might persuade people to visit. We have written captions for photographs, explored AFOREST techniques and we have also discussed the impact of chosen words

We have been subtracting numbers where we have had to exchange a ten for ten ones or a hundred for ten tens. 

Anti bullying Week
Using the animation ‘Daisy Chain’ as a stimulus, we explored feelings, thoughts and actions linked to bullying behaviours. We also discussed what makes a good friend.

A good friend is someone who plays with you.
— Ancel
A good friend is trusting, helpful and caring.
— Bradley
A good friend loves you and cares about you.
— Marla

This week, our attendance was 96.7% and we earned 10 handshakes.
