This week we were so impressed with the way that children have applied their learning from Geography into their English learning. We explored the books ‘Highest Mountain, Deepest Ocean’ and ‘Great River of the World’ to see how the authors had chosen to present information in eye catching ways. We then chose a river to research and used information texts to gather information. We were particularly focusing on the skill of skim reading to quickly find information. Next week we will use our research to help us write non-chronological reports about our chosen rivers.
In Maths we explored subtracting where exchanges were needed across 10s and 100. We ccontinued using different representations alongside the column method. Here are some practice worksheets: Practice sheets
During Science we explored the life cycle of flowering plants: the children created some stunning posters that they are looking forward to sharing during Family Friday next week.
During Geography we explored different types of mountain formation.
English: We will be working towards writing our own non-chronological reports
Maths: Adding/subtracting 2-digit and 3-digit numbers, identifying complements to 100
Reading: Our text this half term is Everest
STEM: We will be learning about Plants this half term.
Project: Our project this half term is a geography focus: Rivers and Mountains. Here is a knowledge map that explains what we will be covering during our lessons: Y3 Au2 Rivers and Mountains Knowledge Map Next week we will be comparing two different rivers.
Have a wonderful weekend,
The Year 3 team.
