Telling the time

 

This week, we are learning to tell the time. By the end of Year 3, all children should be able to tell the time to the nearest minute. I am sure you agree, that telling the time is a really important life skill. We recommend that you spend a little bit of time often helping your child learn how to tell the time. Here is the link to a interactive clock and some useful games.

Year 3 become Archaeologists 

 

3C and 3J have had TOP-SECRET deliveries during history from a local archaeological dig. In pairs, the children discovered lots of different artefacts and then wrote about them ready to relay their findings to the archaeologists. Have a look at the photos of what they found!

Computing in Year 3

 

In computing, we are learning how to become more effective at typing. Have a go at using 'Dance Mat Typing' to start to learn how to hold your hands correctly on the keyboard and become as speedy as Miss Johnson.

Year 3's Herd of Mammoths

 

Our herd of mammoths is now nearly finished. Check out our photos below. We hope you agree that they look fantastic!
 

How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth

 

Over the last two weeks, we have been reading the fabulous book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth'. We have loved thinking about a set of instructions for how we would wash our Woolly Mammoth if we had one as a pet. Today the children have started to make their mammoths and we can't wait till we have a finished herd!

Check out the photos below of their 'mammoth' efforts. 

If you had a pet woolly mammoth, what sort of mischief would they get into?

Times Tables Challenge

 

This week we have launched our times tables challenge in Year 3. Each child has been given a times table passport and to cross off each times table they need to answer division and multiplication questions in that times table. They need to get all of the questions right in 5 minutes and do it 3 times in row. They will then move onto the next times table. We will be completing them in the order of 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 4s and 8s.  Times tables are a really important skill that will benefit your child throughout their life and are best learnt by short bursts of practice done often.

Your child can build their knowledge using the games below and also watch the Supermovers videos to help them learn their times tables.


 

Keeping Safe!

We have been discussing how to keep ourselves and our friends safe while in school. In 3J we compared 2 metres to animals to help us remember how far to stay away from adults. In 3C we thought about different ways to keep safe, like; washing hands for 20 seconds, keeping 2 metres away from adults and socially distancing from our friends. We have created posters to help us remember.

Stone Age Day

 

Check out some of the photos from our Stone Age day below. What was your favourite part of the day and what did you learn about the Stone Age?
