Week Commencing 18.9.17
What a great week we had last week. On Wednesday we managed to get out on our walk to look at Victorian houses despite the downpour. We got very wet but we kept our spirits up and took some fantastic photographs (mainly architectural features but with the odd dog in the frame!)
We want to say a huge thanks to the adults who came with us and braved the elements!
The week ahead...
Literacy - We will be focussing on improving our writing using fronted adverbials and compound sentences and we continue to read 'Street Child'. We are really enjoying the story and can't wait for the next chapter each day.
Numeracy - We will be comparing and ordering numbers. We will use the symbols < > to compare. We will be looking at problems and working out numbers from the clues in the digits.
For example; Use the clues to find the missing digits:
The hundreds digit is double the tens digit. The tens digit is 5 less than 2 x 4 The ones digit is 2 less than the hundreds digit.
Topic - We will work in groups to become experts at different features of Victorian houses and we will share our expertise with our class.
Science - We will be looking at the properties of different rocks and testing their durability.
Homework - Maths homework has been set electronically. Mathletics Login details have been stuck into planners. It needs to be completed by Wednesday so I can check results on Thursday please.
Literacy Homework is in Y3 Autumn Resources
Spellings will be tested Tuesday
Thankyou for your continued support.
Week Commencing 11.9.17
Welcome to Class 3W
What an exciting few days we have had. We have been making lots of mess but having a great time making enchanted hats which can whisk us away to imaginary places. Please do stop and take a look at them outside our room.
Now we have settled in learning all the new routines, the hard work and fun starts.
This week we will be focussing on:
In Maths - Number and the number system
- Understanding place value in numbers up to 1000

We will be using lots of maths vocabulary such as Place value, Digit, Hundreds, Tens,

In Science - we will be finding out about different rock types.
In Topic- We will be going on a walk around the local area on Wednesday to look at the architecture of Victorian buildings. A huge thanks to those adults who have volunteered to come with us . Without your support it would not be possible.

We have our new planners and have been busy filling them in with all the reading we have been doing. Keep this up Class 3!
I'm sure we will have an exciting and fun week - let's make the most of our opportunities Class 3W!
