End of Week 2

Hello all,

We have had a busy week in Year 3 this week! In Maths, we started the week with some more column method work before moving on to estimating and rounding, which is reflected in the homework for this week.

In our Learning Across the Curriculum lessons, we have been looking at stone age jewellery and tools, including looking at the materials and methods used to create them. We even had some children pitching their ‘inventions’ in a Dragons Den-style pitch!

The skill we have been focusing on in DR has been ‘inferring’, so please test the children on this skill over the weekend. We read ‘Stone Age Boy’ as a class this week, which the children seemed to enjoy lots.

We saw huge improvements in the home reading engagement levels this week (with a year 3 class winning the school-wide home reading competition), so please keep this enthusiasm going for the coming weeks as it has really reflected in class!

Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone Monday!

Mrs Campbell-Whitfield and Mr Ward
