Number line to 1,000

In Class 3 we have been super busy learning about 3 digit numbers. We know how to add and subtract 3 digit numbers and can place them on a number line. This week we did a physical number line and talked about where the numbers would fit into the number line. We also looked at estimating to help support us with our addition and subtraction.

For example the number 138 is closer to 100 than 200.

Knock Knock Open the Door!

Year 1 have been looking at the book ‘Knock Knock Open the Door’. After reading the story and discussing what animal was behind each door we then worked in groups to mind map who could be behind the last door. The children came up with some wonderful ideas including a polar bear, a bee and even a superhero! The children then wrote their predictions in their books.

       

Times tables

In Year 3 we are working hard to learn our times tables.

We use TT Rockstars regularly but also we have been getting fit by using supermovers to move and sing along to them. We are determined to know the 3 x tables off by heart very soon.

Barclays

On Wednesday 27th November Year 3 were very lucky and had the opportunity to go to Barclays Bank in Northwich.

We completed lots of different activities, to start we had to work as a team to see who could build the tallest structure with lego, Isaac, Thomas, Oliver and Alfie’s team won – well done boys!

We looked at how to stay safe on the internet and made sure we knew the correct ages to access different social media platforms.

We watched a video of children using a very old computer – it was like a box. Mrs Davies, Mrs Wood and Mrs Daley all remembered the olden days where these were the only computers that existed!

We had a tour of the offices and saw people doing their jobs and we also had the added bonus of seeing the Premier League Trophy!

 

Baking

This week we have been very lucky and have had Mrs Barnes for baking. We decided to go with the theme of Christmas and baked gingerbread biscuits in the shape of gingerbread men and snowmen. We made the biscuits first and when they’d cooled we decorated them with icing and Christmas 🎄 bits and bobs.

They look amazing and tasted delicious too.

 

Asking Questions!

This week Year 1 have been looking at how we ask questions. As our topic is animals and we have been looking at the story ‘The Lion Inside’ we thought it was important to pretend to be a mouse and ask the mouse some very important questions. We asked the mouse things like ‘Why are you on my rock?’ and ‘What do you like to eat?’

Change starts with us ……..

last week we celebrated anti-bullying week with a theme of ‘change starts with us’ we though about how we could make our school community a happier place for everyone.

It was lovely to see the children focusing on being kind, paying each other compliments, offering support, praising effort and SMILING! The children have made a pledge to make a small change to their behaviour in school that could make a huge difference to someones day.

The children also wore odd socks to celebrate diversity and to highlight that we are all  unique and special. 

 

Mini teachers!

On Wednesday morning in Class 3, instead of Mrs Daley being the teacher for the whole Maths lesson, Vayun, Isaac and Thomas stepped in. They each worked with a group for a short period of time to support with their Maths learning, they did a fantastic job and the rest of the class enjoyed it too.

Well done boys, it was excellent to see you showing the other children in the class the strategies you use.

Active afternoon

To finish our week off in Year 3 we have been very energetic and done PE in the hall. We have made use of our fantastic new walls. The children all had a turn of clear out and Mr Rowe took down the children’s scores after 30 seconds so now we can hopefully see week on week improvements.

The rest of us did some moving in different ways through the cones and aiming using bean bags.

Such a busy week in Year 3!
