This week has been another wonderful week in Year 3. During science the children have researched fossils and the fossilisation process. They created some beautifully presented posters showcasing all the facts they had learnt. The children have really enjoyed exploring the Egyptian myth ‘Day and Night’. The children concentrated on the skill of uplevelling adjectives using thesauruses and applied their vault of vocabulary to a description of Ra (the Egyptian god of the Sun). In maths we have been working on positioning numbers on number lines to 1000. Here are some of our practice sheets from this week: Maths Week 4 Worksheets
Here is the powerpoint that Mr Drane mentioned in his reading workshop: author a-z 3-4.pdf
Please bring or email in a photograph for our class family display.
Please can you also ensure the following:
- All children have water bottles and a healthy snack that contains NO NUTS, e.g. chopped vegetables or fruit.
- All children have their names on their school items, such as jumpers and PE kits.
