Year 3 Blog 2020-2021

Fantastic homework!
 
Myself and Miss Simpson have been very impressed with everyone's homework so far. Well done to the people who are completing their homework every week. See pictures below of some good examples. 
Food adverts. 
 
Today we looked at different food adverts. We talked about the different persuasive methods the adverts use to try and get people to buy their product. We then compared the different adverts and found out that certain adverts try to look like their product is healthy when actually is it not. See pictures of our work below.
Fruit kebabs.
 
Today we made some fruit kebabs. We used strawberries, pineapple, bananas and blueberries. We used knives to cut some of the fruit carefully so they could fit on our skewer. We did this as part of our healthy eating week. Did you know, you need to eat 5 portions of fruit or vegetables a day. 
 
 
Healthy eating week!
 
This week is healthy eating week and today we decided to create healthy eating posters. These will be displayed around the school to help children make correct food choices. See pictures below. :) 
Sunny measuring! 
 
In Year 3 because we been enjoying the sunny weather, we decided to go outside for our Maths lesson this week. In Maths we are learning about measuring with a ruler. We went into the playground and found lots of things that were less than 10cm and more than 12cm. We then compared our measurements and found out what was the longest thing outside and what was the shortest. 
See pictures below. 

Easter baking!

 

This week has been very exciting in school. On Monday in design and technology we designed our own Easter biscuits, then on Tuesday we got to create our designs! After we completed the biscuits we then wrote instructions about how to re-create them, as they were so good! We enjoyed using imperative verbs to write our instructions and we made sure they were in chronological order. See below pictures of us baking and some of our instructions. 

 

Home learning 24.02.21
 
Welcome back year 3. Our week has started with our new exciting science topic, plants! We started our topic by looking at different parts of a flower. In English we are starting our new story "Jim's Cautionary Tale", where we have been predicting what is going to happen in the story and finding out what certain words mean. In Maths we have been looking at our 4 times tables and how to use our times tables to solve worded problems. See pictures below of some of our work. 
Home learning 03.02.21
 
This week in English we have been planning and writing our non-chronological report all about tea. We have used all our work from the past 3 weeks to help us write some factual information. See below some of our reports. 
Home learning 28.01.21
 
Another week of fantastic home learning year 3. This week we have finished our English story and are now starting to think about writing our report all about tea. To help us do this we have completed various tasks such as, discovering where tea is grown in the world and reading journals from people who work in a tea plantation. 
In Maths myself and Miss Simpson were amazed with how hard you have been working with subtracting 3 digit numbers. Well done to people who are now using these skills to now answer worded problems. 
In guided reading you have all been working hard looking at Zambia and Zimbabwe. 
In geography we have been looking at lines of latitude and longitude and why these are important. 
Final note, well done to people who have been completing P.E with Joe or other P.E activities. See some pictures of your work below :) 
Home learning 20.01.21
 
Another fantastic week with our home learning and zoom lessons really taking off. This week we have been reading more of our English book, The Cloud Tea Monkeys. We have learnt about different characters and have been retrieving different information from the text to help us understand it better. In Maths we have been putting our addition knowledge to the test by answering worded problems. See below some work from this week :) 
Home learning tasks. 13.01.12
 
You have all worked so hard the past week and a half with the home learning. Myself and Miss Simpsons thought we need to share some of the fantastic work we have been getting. We have loved hearing about your days and seeing some of you in our live lessons. See some pictures below of some of your home learning :) 
French in Year 3
 
In our weekly French lessons we have been learning all about numbers. We have learnt how to say the numbers 0-10 in French. We made some posters to help us remember how to say and write these numbers correctly. 
Science afternoon
 
On Monday afternoon in groups we carried out a science experiment where we added different ingredients to make crystals. First we added a solution to our cup, next we added some warm water so the solution could dissolve. Whilst we were mixing the ingredients we decided to add different food colouring so the crystals will become different colours. 
 
Later on we went into the hall and observed and studied different types of rocks. We found, agminate, a shark tooth, rose quartz, snow flake obsidian and some tigers eye stones. 
Anti-bullying week.
 
Everyday this week we will be learning about anti-bullying week. Yesterday we talked about what is a bully and what we can do if someone is being bullied. We then thought of different things we would do to help stop bullying and created a collage containing all our different ideas. See below pictures of some of our ideas on how Year 3 will put a stop to bullying.
E-Safety! 
 
This week in Year 3, we have been looking at how to stay safe online. We talked about the importance of setting a secure password. We created examples of good and safe passwords to have. We then talked about other rules we should follow if we want to stay safe online. We created posters to display in the school which tell other children about staying safe online. 
Yoga.
 
In Year 3 we use lots of methods to help us relax our minds, we often meditate after lessons. Recently we have started doing yoga during our P.E lessons, we like learning the different moves and have got more flexible after doing it a few times. See below some pictures of us doing yoga. 
Year 3 Poetry Week. 
 
To celebrate poetry week in year 3 we decided to look at Kenning Poems. We decided to write our own Kenning poems based on the mythical creature of the house we belong to. Can you guess what house we belong to after reading our poems below? 
Romans!
 
In history we have learning about the Romans. We have learnt that for their shields they use wood and for their spears they use iron and stone. We designed and painted romans shields using a range of colours which represent different reasons. For example red is used for danger or power and yellow (gold) is for rich. We then used our shields to perform Roman battle formations. See below some picture of our shields.
