This week we won the clock and medals because we have had 100% attendance. What a fabulous effort everyone!

In Maths we have looked at durations of time. Some of us are still working on telling the time when it is minutes to the hour. Our confidence is growing!

On Wednesday, we found out who our new teacher will be in September 2018.  It was very exciting to spend the day with our new class, taking part in lots of fun activities including drawing members of our families in a style which linked to ‘The Beatles’ and writing about ourselves, targets and dreams to help our new teacher find out more about us. 

We still have lots to do and enjoy in our Year 3 class and Mrs Thompson isn’t quite ready to let us go just yet….she may keep us because we are so fabulous!

This week has been all things road safety!

We started the week with a visit from emergency service vehicles. We had a fabulous time exploring and learning all about the vital role they play in keeping us safe.

We have also been thinking about how parents and carers can park further away from school to keep the area clear and the children safe. Using trundle wheels and cones, we measured out distances of 100m, 150m and 200m. Then we walked each of these distances to time how long they would add to our journey to school. We worked out that parking and walking to school from 200m away would only add 1 minute and 59 seconds on to our journey. Less than 2 minutes out of our day could save a life.

In class, we used inference and sequenced images to tell a story. Once we had discussed our stories, we watched a short film about road safety and then we changed the film in to a set of instructions for KS1 children to follow so that they can stay safe on the road

In Maths this week we have started to look in greater detail at telling the time. We have been exploring months of year, as well as ordering key times of the day. After recapping o’ clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to the hour, we will be moving on to telling the time to 5 minutes. 

In English we have been exploring instructional texts after reading ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’.  We wrote our own set of instructions for how to care for a pet. As we move through the unit of work, we will be writing instructions about how to care for other Stone Age creatures.

As an introduction to our Stone Age topic, Are These Your Teeth?, we have been rubbish detectives. We had to sort through bags of rubbish in order to determine the type of person it belonged to. We then discussed how archaeologists use artefacts from the past to determine what life was like. 

In Maths we have continued to explore fractions. We had to use of knowledge of equivalent fractions to solve problems. 

This week in English we have been using ellipsis to create suspense. We rotated around the tables to explore different images and write a sentence to hook the reader.
