Please remember to book your slot on the school website. The meetings this term will take place on Wednesday 17th October 3.50pm- 8pm and Thursday 18th October 3.50pm -6pm.
I look forward to sharing with you how your child is getting on in Year 3 so far.
A massive thank you to Mr Kightley who came in this week to tell us more about the Romans. Mr Kightley was able to show us a range of Roman artefacts including; coins, pottery, jewellery and lamps.
What was your favourite artefact? Can you remember the uses for each artefact?
What materials were the artefacts made from?
Well done to those of you who have already completed a piece of topic homework.
The shields and mosaics look great and I'm sure any Roman would be proud to have them! Well done too for those of you who have made delicious Roman cakes.
Remember to complete at least one piece before half term and one afterwards.
How fast can you recall the 2,3,4,5 and 8 times tables? Keep learning them at home as we will be testing each other over the coming weeks.
Try getting a grown up to ask you the following questions and time how long it takes to answer them! Can you get quicker?
4 x 3 =
7 x 2 =
10 x 9 =
5 x 6 =
3 x 10=
12 x 3 =
2 x 6 =
This week we have been busy recapping some learning from Year 2 and moving our learning on. We have been using our place value knowledge to find 10p more/less and 100p more/less, We have been using the dienes cubes and place value counters to work out the new amounts. Here are some images from questions earlier this week.
As the week progressed our learning got even trickier but we did not give up! Try these questions at home if you want a challenge.
Mrs Chrin had £1.25 but she spent 10p on chocolate. How much money did she have left?
Phil had £12.06 and he dropped 200p on the floor. How much money did he have in his hand?
Tim helped to sell some items at the car boot sale. He raised 230p and added it to the amount of £2.67. How much did he have in total?
Have a good weekend!
What a lot of learning we have done this week!
We have all enjoyed starting our new English book; 'Man on the moon'. Can you remember what Bob gets up to during the day?
We have carried our space learning on in Science this week too! We have been learning about the moon and how it looks in the sky. We tried drawing it before our learning and afterwards. We could certainly see a difference in our drawings because of what we had been learning.
The photos below show our class investigation on craters. Can you remember some of the super adjectives you used? How did we create the craters?
Welcome back to the new school year! We have so much super learning in store for you. Did you have a wonderful holiday?
Please keep checking back at this blog to find out more about 3C.
It's ok to feel a bit nervous over the next few days but you will soon settle into being grown up Year 3 children. If you have any concerns please come and speak to me.
Friday 14th September is Meet the Teacher so I hope to see some of you then.
Thank you to you all for my very thoughtful and and kind gifts. You have all been so lovely and the individual little comments and home made touches mean the world. We have had a fabulous year and now the children are definitely ready for Year 3! Try your best children and show your new teachers how independent, brave, confident and resilient you are! I will miss you all!
Love from Mrs Dunne
We had a wonderful time at Framlingham Castle - I don't think I've ever taken such an excited group of children! We embraced every moment from pretending to swim in the moat, to bravely climbing up to the battlements, to playing parachute games on the field! Here are some photos so you can see how much fun we had. We are now extremely knowledgeable about castles. We are like real historians!
As you know, all year we have been working VERY hard in maths. One method we use to help us with our calculations is a Part Part Whole Bar. We put each number or amount into its specific part and it helps us understand what to do. You can use objects or numbers. Here are some ideas of how we use them.
This week we have been challenging ourselves to learn our times tables. Can you say the answers really quickly? If you want a further challenge learn up to 12 times each number. Then for a SUPER challenge practise your 4 times table? In Year 2 we learn our 2 x, 3 x, 4 x, 5 x, and 10 x. Which ones do you find easier and why?
