Welcome to Year 3
This half term we are looking at the book Narnia by C.S Lewis. We are looking at where the book is set and then we are going to write our own setting descriptions using a lot of descriptive language.
This half term we have been looking at the parts and functions of green plants. We have also looked at what they need to grow and we have set up an experiment to see how beans grow with different amounts of light.
This half term in maths we are looking at division and multiplication. We have looked at a range of mental and written methods to help us solve word problems.
We have also started using Times Table Rockstars and each child has an individual log on. We encourage children to use this within school and at home.
This half term we are learning about natural disasters. We have looked at volcanoes, earthquakes, Tsunamis and hurricanes. We have learnt about how they are formed and what after effects they can create. In class the children have worked together to create their very own erupting volcanoes.
This half term we are learning about Diwali and we have made some lovely Diva pots. We are also going to look at the Christmas story.
