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.

Until the final breath!

Today we looked at lung capacity and we did an experiment to find out our own.

We used a homemade ‘machine’ to measure our lung capacity. Can you tell me more about this and how we used it? Who had the biggest lung capacity and why?

Tell me (and everybody else) something that you learned from today’s lesson and make sure you share what your lung capacity is!


What is a muscle?

In our science learning this week, we will be thinking our muscles. Before we start our lessons, tell me what you know about muscles.

Also, can you clarify any of these words that we will use in our lesson this week:

joints, tendons, contract, relax, biceps, triceps.

This weeks Learn Its are:

6 x 3 = 18

7 x 3 = 21

How much sugar is in your favourite food?

After a wonderful topic launch looking at the Eatwell Guide and the different food groups, we can really get started on our Keeping Healthy topic.

Next week, we will look at how much sugar is in our favourite foods. I think you might be surprised about how much is hidden that we do not know about.

Have a look at some of the foods in your house and share on the blog how many grams (g) of sugar are in them.

I am currently enjoying some chocolate and there are 14.5g of sugar in it… Maybe I should choose something a little healthier from the fruits and vegetable food group!
