What an inspiring week! The children have found their speech making voices this week to share important messages about climate change. We have been delighted with the speeches that the children have written- well done Year 3!

In Maths we have been focusing on the link between multiplication and division. We used place value counters to make different arrays before identifying the fact families. We explored lots of different problems where we had to multiply AND divide to get to the answer. Have a go at the calculations on this sheet: Maths

During our Art lessons, we have been exploring the damage that climate change has done to different habitats. We picked out all the colours we could see in our habitat before representing the damage done in a contrasting colour. We then created art work using lines of circles of our colours. The end results we very striking!

A note about PSHCE coverage for this half term:

Children will broaden their knowledge of different drug types and how they enter the bloodstream. They will develop their understanding of medicine use and the roles of health professionals and others who handle these drugs at work. They will further develop their awareness and understanding of safety rules relating to medicines and extend these to consider ways of
keeping safe with a broader range of items, including syringes. They will reflect upon realistic sources of support from trusted adults and consider how to tell and ask for help. They will focus on two legal recreational drugs – nicotine and alcohol – considering the effects, why some people choose to use them and skills for reducing risk and harm. They will consider the impact of influence and persuasion and practise skills to help manage these.

 

Have a wonderful weekend,

Warmest wishes,

The Year 3 team.
