This week we welcomed trainee teacher, Hannah Jackson, into our class. You may see quite a lot of her over the coming weeks as she will be working in Year 3 until the end of June.
This week the children have started exploring different types of poetry. The children have had a go at writing their own kennings and we have started to explore acrostic poems.
We also made the most of the weather and took our lesson outside again when learning about calculating perimeters.
The children have made the most of the outdoors this week. On Monday, we took at walk around South Zeal, following the route of the river; the children completed a short art lesson creating observational drawings of the plants and today, they enjoyed finishing their final write for English in the sunshine, before having great fun with circus skills and swimming this afternoon.
A really lovely week - you all deserve a good rest!
This week has flown by! Year 3 have been busy learning about length in Maths, water and weather in Geography, how and why magnets attract or repel each other and continuing with our 'A River' unit in English.
As part of our English unit, the children chose different settings that could be visited as part of a journey. In Art, the children then created one of these settings on paper. Their artwork was beautiful!
For their next step, the children chose powerful verbs and adjectives that could go with the different pictures, decided on the final journey and then chose the order of the different places. The children will be using this journey to create a story about it using the different sentence structures and prepositions we've been learning about.
What a busy week the children have had to begin another half term. They have been busy learning about statistics in maths, prepositions in English, finishing their pulleys in DT, learning cricket skills in PE, World Book Day and finally, their first swimming lesson.
They all deserve a good rest this weekend!
World Book Day
The children had a fantastic time yesterday, celebrating World Book Day. It was lovely to see all of the children dressed up and to take a closer look at their fantastic story jar creations - well done, everyone!
