wb:02.10.2017 – Year 3b!


Hi everyone! Welcome to another week in Year 3b and what a week it’s been!

In English we have been tasked by Professor Blake from the History Museum in London to help him write some new reports to go alongside his Stone Age artefacts. His section of the museum was robbed!!! And it’s our job to save the day by writing some new reports! We began by looking at non-chronological reports and their features, before rearranging some reports that the naughty burglars had cut up! The children were brilliant at sorting the headings with the correct sub-headings and paragraphs. Next week, we will move on to write our own!

In Maths, we have been learning about 3D shapes and their properties! We’ve had fun getting practical, constructing our own 3D shapes using rainbow drops and cocktail sticks. We then described their properties using language including edges, faces and vertices.

In topic, we have studied cave paintings that were found deep down in the homes of Stone Age people. We learned about how they created their art resources to use before creating our own. The results were amazing and the children took such time and care. You can see some of the examples on our Twitter page.

Star of the week!

Charlie: For brilliant questioning and reasoning skills in Maths when doubling and halving some challenging numbers.

House Point Winners!

Team Passion won this week!

Next week, we are really lucky to have a famous Olympian coming to lead our assembly! This will take place on Monday and we are all very excited!

Remember! Swimming kits are needed every Monday and PE kits are needed on a Tuesday ad Friday.

Have a lovely weekend everyone 🙂

Miss Andrew
