…To read all about our fantastic week of learning in Year 3! This week we have been so impressed with the writing the children have produced during their English lessons. They have written fantastic persuasive pieces trying to convince people to visit the Midnight Fair. The children applied their knowledge of persuasive devices to create work that they are very proud of!

In Maths we have been focusing on multiplying by 10s. We began by investigating what happens when a teen number is multiplied by 10. We used tens frames and tens counters to build the calculations. We built on this throughout the week and we applied our knowledge to a very exciting problem involving recipes for miniature cakes. We were able to ‘scale up’ the miniature cakes by multiplying the ingredients by 10.

 

During Science, we have been exploring food and nutrition. We were very surprised to find out exactly how many teaspoons of sugar are in some of our favourite treats!

 

NEXT WEEK

English: We will be focusing on the book ‘Shackleton’s Journey’. We will apply our new knowledge of persuasive writing to write job adverts to recruit sailors for the crew.

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.
