24 Acts for the 40 days of Lent

In Y3, we have started our 40 day challenge to complete 24 acts and we are well under way with this. Some of you have already completed one or more activity from the list!

These can be done in any order, so this week we have tried to remember to say thank you to someone who helps us, hold the door open for someone and ask an adult in school if you can help them.

I would love to hear how you are getting on with these at home. A picture of you and your family doing these activities would be great to see if at all possible.

Have you already completed some of these activities? Which activity might be the hardest for you to complete?

Who is the biggest bookworm?

We are fast approaching World Book Day!

On Thursday, we will be sharing stories all day, so to get us in the mood, I would like you to tell me some of your favourite stories.

Maybe it is a story that we have read this year such as Tiger Dead! Tiger Dead! or Harry the Poisonous Centipede or maybe it is a book that you have at home or one you are currently reading from the class library.

Take it away!

Saci Perere

Wow, what a wonderful afternoon we had with Mr Littlewood, who told us a story about Saci Perere. What can you remember from this story and about the character of Saci?

Mr Littlewood asked you to create your own story using some characters and a situation in which Saci caused some mischief. We read our stories out loud and I loved how creative these were!

Share on the blog your Saci Perere story.

What is important to you?

There is a lot of learning to fit in this week before half term, so I hope that you are ready to work hard.

Keep learning those important facts from the 4x table. This week, our Learn Its are still:

4 x 4 = 16

5 x 4 = 20

6 x 4 = 24

Our RE learning this week will focus on the things that we consider important. What three things are the most important to you? Can you justify your reasons?

Have you ever sent a letter?

This week in our English learning, we are looking at letters (not the ones in the alphabet!) but the ones you would send in the post.

I have some questions that I think some of you could answer:

  • Why do people send letters?
  • What is in a letter?
  • Have you ever sent a letter and why did you send it?

We are still using hit the button for work on our 3x tables so try playing on this at home.

Our Learn Its are:

1 x 4 = 4

2 x 4 = 8

3 x 4 =12

Weston Park & Knowledge Organiser

What a very busy week we have had in Y3.

On Tuesday, we visited Weston Park Museum as part of our topic. What was your favourite part of the day? I enjoyed listening to all your incredible knowledge. You really did impress the staff at the museum.

Perhaps some of this came because you have looked at your knowledge organiser. I would like you to post on here a fact from it.

A new half term, a new topic.

I hope that you all enjoyed your break and are ready to come back to school. Has anybody started their homework projects? I am looking forward to seeing them.

This week, we will be starting our new topic about ancient Egypt. I would like you think about what you know about this topic already and what you would like to find out.

I know that you will love learning about the Egyptians this term!

Will you continue to stay healthy?

Next week, we will be wrapping up our topic learning. I have really enjoyed teaching this topic to you and I hope you have enjoyed it too.

Can you tell me a fact you have learned during our topic or your favourite lesson?

We have learned about:

  • Carnivores, herbivores and omnivores
  • The ‘Eatwell Guide’ and the five sections
  • The amount of hidden sugar in our foods
  • Vertebrates and invertebrates
  • Our skeletal system
  • Some of the main muscles in our bodies
  • Lung capacity
  • Healthy sandwiches and even created our own

 

Apple week cooking

Hello Y3,

On Friday, I hear that you cooked some delicious apple flapjack as part of our Apple Week celebrations; is this true?

What I do know is that you were all great as part of the cooking project and I also hear that some real life maths was involved, such as; how many grams in a kilogram, how to half 3 and 4 digit numbers and lots more!

Well done on another wonderful day.
