This week in Maths, Year 3 have been investigating different types of measurements including length, weight and capacity. In English we have been reading the story of The Gruffalo. We have also reordered the story, created a story map and today we began to text map the story. On Friday, we then chose our own character. This afternoon, we continued to improve our ball skills by playing mini netball games. In IPC, we have been designing our very own tribal mask, to wear to our tribal party next week. In the new hall, we have created a display all about saving the rainforest. Please check it out :)

This afternoon, Year 3 started to create the 4 layers of the rainforest. Here are some of our models so far! We used lots of different materials such as straws, feathers, tissue paper and cellophane. 
 
Some of us went to choir and we sang This is Me and we also started learning an Irish song about a wild rover!
 
In English, we have written some persuasive posters all about SAVING THE RAINFOREST! Look out for some of these on our Year 3 hall display.

This week in Year 3, some of us went to choir and started learning This is Me from The Greatest Showman. We also made some leaves to hang in the hall. We wrote on the leaves all about what we would like in our ideal school. This week we also started our first piece of Year 3 homework all about ordering numbers. In PE, we learn some different netball passes such as chest past and the bounce pass!

This week, Year 3 visited the Life Bus where we learnt how the brain works and how to resolve friendship conflicts. 
 
In English we have written a diary entry in the role of Tarzan. 
 
In Maths, we have been ordering and comparing numbers. We have also created 3x table triangles to help us with our multiplication and division facts. 
 
Thank you for all the shoe boxes that you have already brought in. We are still in need of some more so do have a hunt over the weekend if you have any spares in time for next Tuesday.

Welcome to Year 3! This week we have been playing some getting to know you games including the changes game and the lining up game. Over the summer, we had the chance to take our pebble pet on holiday with us and today we wrote a diary about our travels with our pebbles. We have also enjoyed meeting our new headteacher Mr Cattermole. Now that we're in Year 3, we are excited to use the new activity trail on the KS2 playground! 
 
This afternoon, we are doing our IPC entry point. Photos to follow...
