Year 3 - Tokyo Class

September 2019

 

A new year means new challenges! We welcome all of our new pupils to Key Stage Two and promise you an amazing year ahead. We will be reading some fantastic books, discovering some extraordinary facts in science and the humanities as well as developing some fascinating maths skills. We will be indulging our creativity in music, art and DT. We will work hard and  play enthusiastically, co-operating confidently and being the very best versions of ourselves at all times.

We are in the final term of Year 3 but are still learning so much! This term we have been focusing on our topic 'Savage Stone Age'. We have really enjoyed focusing on history and acquiring new skills to solve historical problems.

We all loved getting out and about in our local community to help clean up. After our leaning about the impact of litter last term, it felt great to know we were doing good in our local area and making a difference. Joanne from SWAK helped us and made sure we were safely dealing with the litter. We enjoyed it so much we are planning another very soon!!!

We enjoyed reading and exploring 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura. We broke the story down into sections and acted them out using freeze frames. We also rewrote the story adding more description and detail, aiming for a older audience.

Saving Planet Earth

This term we have started our new, exciting topic based around the theme of recycling and caring for our planet. The children have enjoyed researching and learning about different types of pollution, with a focus on marine pollution. They have written non-chronological reports about plastic pollution and its impact on our oceans. They have also enjoyed writing formal letters to Teresa Pearce, our local MP, to persuade her to support this recycling campaign and do more to help. They are also starting to produce some creative works of art based around the same topic.

 

After half-term, we will be starting a litter campaign for our local area. It has been a pleasure to see the children getting so involved in such an important and relevant topic.

We will be reading and studying the book, 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman in class and producing lovely, exciting work based on this.

What have we been learning? 

 

Maths: In Maths, we started by learning all about Place Value. We used Base 10 Blocks, Numicon and Place Value Grids to explore 3-digit numbers. After that, we started our new unit on Addition & Subtraction. As well as continuing to use methods like the number-line and concrete resources, we have also learnt a new method of column addition and subtraction. 

Watch the video below which clearly explains the column method for subtracting. We will continue to use this method after half-term for adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers., as well as continuing to use more familiar methods.

English: In English, we started the topic by writing amazing descriptions of fireworks. We had a go at designing our own firework and wrote instructions on how to make it!

We have also learnt about informal letters and written letters not only to each other but also as a character from 'The Firework Maker's Daughter'.

Finally, we have been looking at newspaper reports and had a go at writing a newspaper article about a scene from the book. We also acted out some of the scenes from the book (see photos below)...
