Monthly Archives: February 2018

30 days hath…

We are back into the swing of learning and today we looked at the number of days in a month, to extend our knowledge of how the year is arranged.

We learned a rhyme to help us learn the amounts of days in each month and also a trick using our knuckles. Can you answer my question, using the methods we learned today:

In total, how many days are there in January and October?

We also discussed some reasons as to why February has less days than any other month. Perhaps you could research the answer to this and post on the blog?

Wonderful Weather

On Friday, we are visiting Perlethorpe as part of our topic learning. During the trip, we will be learning more about wind, sunshine, clouds, weather and climate and even more.

Even though we have already started to look at some of these in our class learning, I would like you to read your knowledge organiser before the trip, so we can really show the staff at Perlethorpe how much we know already! Post on here any facts or any questions that we could ask.


This week so far

This week, we have been playing some fun games in maths to help us with our 4x times tables (Scarlett kindly offered to be the ‘quiz master’ and wore the basket on her head!) What has been your favourite game we have played this week? Could you think of a way we could adapt our games to get even quicker at recalling those important facts?

Also, in our RE learning, we have been looking at Puja, the Hindu form of worship. Can you tell me a key word that you learned from this session? Or even a question that you could ask others to answer?


Challenge time

Here are your blogging challenges for this week.

In English we are writing a letter to send to Mrs Adshead, telling her about our time in Y3 so far. For the challenges, can you tell me the odd one out?

A plane, an explosion, a bow, an leg.

Also can you create a sentence using the conjunctions; although, so, if, when?

An extra challenge is to come up with something that might help us learn our 4x tables. This might be a jingle, a game or a trick to help us remember those difficult ones we are struggling with.

Enjoy your weekend.
