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.
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.
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.
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!
Today we’ve been really lucky to have a visit from an author. Billy Bob Buttons has written lots of books and taught us about characterisation. He helped us use similes and metaphors to tell our readers about characters. We also used our senses to describe them. We learnt that it is important to make our characters seem real.
