Year 3 Oak have had a great start to Autumn 2.
In maths we have been practising using column addition when regrouping the tens. During arithmetic Friday we worked in groups to solve 2 step word problems. This was tricky but we all worked hard to solve as many as we could.
We have been learning about newspaper articles in English and the features they often have. Next week we will be writing our own newspaper articles about a volcano erupting.
Year 3 have had a fantastic start to the new school year. All the children have been working very hard and have enjoyed the learning we have completed so far.
In maths we have covered place value up to 1000 and the children have been encouraged to prove how they know answers to questions. We will be progressing onto addition and subtraction over the next few weeks.
Using our class text 'Who let the Gods out?' we have wrote a setting description to describe a rock where the main characters were trapped. We used effective adjectives and prepositional phrases such as, behind the scared children, to make our descriptions exciting to read.
The class reading text is 'The boy in the dress' written by David Walliams. The children are finding this book engaging and funny so far.
TT Rock Stars
Each child has brought home a log in for the Times Tables Rockstars website/app. They can practise times tables in a fun but competitive way. If your child can not find their log in details ask me for it again. I will be awarding certificates to children who use this site the most.
