Welcome to 3JW
Wednesday 20th September - Maths number hunt
We have been learning how to add and subtract multiples of 10 and 100. Today we put our knowledge to the test by doing a number hunt. The children were given different calculations that they had to find around the school hall and then work out the answer mentally. Our winners were Tom and Sam! WELL DONE.
Monday 18th September - Drawing our school
Our topic this half term is 'New Beginnings'. We have been looking at our school and learning about what it would have been like in the year it was built (1905). Today we drew a sketch of our school, experimented with charcoal and then used it to shade some areas of our sketch.
Thursday 14th September - Musical Theatre
Every week Year 3 will have a visitor in school to teach them musical theatre. Today they learnt about using their voice, facial expressions and body languages to create a character.
Monday 11th September - Aerial photographs
Our topic this term is New Beginnings where we have been learning about our school and looking at maps of the local area. Today we learnt the difference between physical and human features and then we located features on an aerial photograph of Hale.
Thursday 7th September - Place value maths lesson
For today's maths lesson we have been looking at place value. We matched cards which showed a number as a numeral, in words and using hundreds, tens and units blocks (Base 10). We also completed challenges where we had to work out the numbers from clues that were given.
Here are some photos of us all working hard and trying our best.
This week we have welcomed our new year 3s. We are all very excited to start the school year.
