News from Year 3

Welcome to Year 3’s first blog post of the new school year. The children have settled in so well and have made me feel very welcome to St Adrian’s.

In English, we have been looking at the story ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker. The wordless picture book has really captured the imagination of the class and we were very eager to read the other two books in the trilogy.

During our Math lessons, we have been focusing on place value and understanding the value of each digit within three digit numbers. We have also been finding 100 more and 100 less of three digit numbers too.

Our jellyfish in the making.

In Science, we have been investigating magnets and the forces they create (pushes and pulls). We will be testing magnetic materials next week, which the class are looking forward to.

To finish off the week, we created jellyfish with paper bowls and tissue paper to bring our reading corner to life. We will be finishing them off next week with ribbon tentacles, ready to be displayed.

Have a restful weekend and don’t forget to check our Goggle classroom for this week’s homework,

Miss Battams 🙂
