wb:25.09.17 – Year 3b!


In English this week, the children delved deeper into character descriptions, looking at WAGOLLs before picking apart the language features including verbs paired with adverbs, ING openers and expanded noun phrases. They then wrote their very own description of Ug, the main character from our Power of Reading text and the outcomes were amazing!

In Maths, we moved on to multiplying and looked at our 3 and 4 times tables. The children solved missing number problems and used the inverse operation to make sure they had the correct answer.

In topic the children worked in teams to order events chronologically on a timeline of the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. They then discussed each event and why they had placed it on the timeline using vocabulary such as ‘source’ and ‘evidence’. The children also looked further into the UK on a map and compared it to a map from thousands of years ago when Doggerland existed!

Star of the week!

Jessie: For using her absorption muscle to write an amazing character description, including all of her success criteria! Well done!

House Point Winners!

PE and swimming!

We still have children forgetting to bring in their kits for PE and swimming! Please remember we have our PE sessions on a Tuesday morning and a Friday morning. Swimming kits must be brought and should include a suitable swimsuit, plus towel. Jewellery MUST be removed before coming to school on Mondays, ready for our afternoon swim session.

See you all next week,

Miss Andrew 🙂
