What a busy half term Year 3 have had.
We have spent time getting used to new rules and routines and we are really proud of how well everyone has settled in.
In maths we have spent a lot of time on understanding the value on numbers. We have looked at how adding and taking away 10 changes a number. We have learnt the formal written method of column addition and began practising our ever important times tables.
In Literacy we have watched the film Charlotte's Web and read the book. From this we developed our adjective use and wrote setting and character descriptions. We also wrote a non chronological report about spiders forcing on organisational structures. We then moved on to the picture book Spinderella and wrote our own stories looking at conjunction use.
In Science we have explored what makes a healthy diet, learnt scientific names for our skeleton and explored the digestive system through a variety of engaging lessons.
In our topic work we have developed our painting skills, looking at how to hold a brush properly, making different marks on paper and mixed colours to match a colour wheel. We have also done an artist study.
We have had such a productive half term and can't wait to see what Autumn 2 brings us.
