Year 3 have worked extremely well this week and I have been very impressed by their effort and perseverance particularly in Maths this week. We are still working on our place value and have been looking at estimating, comparing and ordering numbers to 1000.
In guided reading we have continued reading 'Tilly and the Time Machine' by Adrian Edmondson. We have been practising our reading fluency and comprehension.
In English we are continuing with our core text'War and Peas' by Michael Foreman. This week we have focused on using looking at prepositions, summarising key events and using adverbs of time to link sentences together.
We are continuing to learn about The Stone Age in History and the changes between the Paleolithic and Mesolithic. This week we looked what archeologists think they consumed as their main food source during this age.
In science, we were texting the hardness and permeability of different types of rocks. We set up two experiments and discussed why certain rocks are used for particular purposes.
I am extremely impressed by the children's recall of the Spanish alphahbet. This week we looked at making sure certain letter strings are pronounced correctly. e.g. ll makes a y sound.
Please remember homework is due on a Wednesday and reading records must be written in by an adult at least twice a week.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
