Our Year 3 Journey : Outstanding Otters!

Last week in English we started looking at the Roald Dahl story George’s Marvellous Medicine. We began by building descriptions of both Grandma and George, discussing the characters appearances, motions and feelings etc. The children came up with some brilliant words to describe both of the characters! 
 

After discussing how grumpy, grizzly and grouchy George’s Grandma was, we decided it would be a great idea to create our own potions to feed to Grandma. So the children came up with their own weird and wonderful ingredients and then wrote their own instructions of how to make the potion. Remembering to use command words (imperative verbs) to begin each instruction!

Today in art we have been using primary colours to decorate dream jars from the story of The BFG, linking to our English topic of Roald Dahl. The children had to carefully draw their initial on their jar, then had to paint neat bold lines using the primary colour paints. 
In Geography this term we are focusing on the continent of Europe. We have looked at what Europe is, the countries that are in Europe and their Capital Cities. So this week have chosen a selection of European countries and produced information posters on those countries. Here are some fabulous examples:
Below I have attached the Science Knowledge Organiser we will be using in Science this term. It gives your child some fantastic pieces of information regarding what we will be learning this term which is Forces and Magnets.

A great first full week we have had Otters! 

Here’s some of our English work from over the week. We have been looking at the biography of Roald Dahl and some ‘fun’ facts about him. The children are now showing confidence in talking about Roald Dahl and applying their knowledge in their work.

In Art this term we are focusing on Quentin Blake who is the illustrator of the Roald Dahl books and linking this in with painting and mixing of colours. 
 

Today we experimented how to get from primary colours to secondary colours to tertiary colours. The children were fantastic at this, trying their hardest to keep control of their paintbrush and staying in the lines! 

Otters continued to develop their place value knowledge in maths today. Continuing to partition three-digit numbers and then independently writing an addition sentence to match their chosen number. 
 

They all did a fantastic job at this. Their next step is to complete related reasoning and problem solving questions using their partitioning skills!

Today in class we have started looking at partitioning three-digit numbers into hundreds, tens and ones. We began using dines equipment and then moved onto using partitioning cards. All of the children used this Maths equipment with confidence and showed great prior knowledge on partitioning. 

Welcome to Otters!

 

Hello everyone! Tomorrow is the day we are all going to be heading back to school and I know that every one of you will have had a different few weeks and months than normal, each displaying all different kinds emotions but Mrs Stevenson and I are looking forward to seeing you all bright and early ready for our first day as the ‘Otter Class!’

 

Our main focus for the first few days is to make sure that everyone is settled back in, getting to know their new surroundings and getting used to the new systems put in place due to Covid. Of course we also want the children to catch up with friends and get to know both Mrs Stevenson and myself, if they don’t already!


A curriculum newsletter will be heading home this first week, however I will also touch on a few things below:

  • Spellings & English Homework - Mondays
  • PE - Wednesday and Fridays. Both sessions will be outdoors due to the Government guidelines so please ensure your child’s kit is suitable for outdoor weathers. 
  • Maths Homework - Fridays
  • Reading to an adult at home. Books to be handed in on a Wednesday and will be handed back out on a Friday.

 

Please if you have any questions or wish to talk to myself or Mrs Stevenson, can you contact the office to arrange a telephone appointment. We are unable to talk face-to-face due to Government guidelines.
