Year 3 have been learning all about animals including humans, in science. This week we are learning about vertebrates and invertebrates. The children got to make some fantastic skeletons out of dog biscuits and even challenged themselves to label different bones in the human skeleton!
This week, Year 3 have been thinking about what a dilemma is and considering what we would do in different dilemmas. We have been making our decision and then justifying it with a reason using the conjunction ‘because’. Today we were advising the Boy in our class book on his dilemma, as to whether or not he should go into the forest. We participated in a whole class conscience alley to convince one another what the Boy should do ….
Fantastic Freeze Frames!
We have been using our inference skills in English to infer how a character may be feeling from an illustration. We came up with lots of different emotions, describing how the character may be feeling and then put our drama skills to practice with some freeze frames! Can you guess how the character may be feeling from our fabulous acting?
Concrete Resources and Learning Partner Maths, the Best Combination!
We have been using concrete resources such as place value counters to work alongside our learning partners, consolidating our understanding of place value in maths.
Year 3 have been learning all about our class author, Anthony Browne. We have spent some time reading books written by him and exploring the different themes he writes about. Did you know Anthony Browne’s favourite animal is a monkey? We have even created some quizzes to challenge the other children in the school, showing off all of our knowledge about Anthony Browne!
Exciting Learning Coming Soon ….
