This Week’s Learning – wb 26.9.2022

In topic this week we carried on with our science topic of light. We completed some different investigations such as finding out what surfaces reflect light and why, how mirrors work and learning how light from the sun can be dangerous to our eyes and finding out ways to protect our eyes. We finished up the week by identifying the features of an explanation text and planning an explanation text on being safe in the sun.

 

In maths this week we added a multiple of 10 to a 2 digit number, before moving onto subtraction. We then subtracted a multiple of 10 from a number that bridges 100 and subtracted 10 from any given number.

 

Music – your child will continue to learn to play the ukulele through the Sutton Music Service.

 

Bonjour!  Next week we will be counting up to 12 in French.  You could log into your Busy Things account to practice.  Go to Busy Things, KS2, Year 3/4, languages, French and click on the counting worksheet  .  Next week we will be using our numbers to say how old we are.

We will finish up the week by editing our explanation text to ensure we have met out targets in the Year 3 writing criteria.

 

In maths we will be adding and subtracting hundreds, tens and ones within 1000, identifying numbers form 1 to 1000 on a number line, comparing and ordering 3 digit numbers and finishing up the week by partitioning 3 digit numbers in different ways.

This Week’s Learning – wb 19.9.2022

In topic this week, we gathered vocabulary for our fairy tale. We then wrote our own fairy tale based on the story of Hansel and Gretel, we tired hard to include inverted commas for speech, adverbs to expand action and we are beginning to learn how to use paragraphs. We finished the week by moving onto our science topic of light. We looked at recognising that we need light in order to see things and that the dark is the absence of light.

 

In Maths, we completed some different quizzes to check your child’s understanding and to identify gaps in learning that we can fill during Year 3.

 

Music - your child is learning to play the ukulele through the Sutton Music Service.
