    Adding money

    Hi guys, back from the holidays and straight back to it. This week the children have been learning all about money. As they became more confident we built up at adding money. Certain children were adding in columns with a decimal point independently by the end of the week.


    We had lots of fun! Your Y3 team

    Target board

    This week the children have been introduced to Spheros and Ollies. They used the IPads to control and steer them towards a target board. It took a while to get the hang of it but we eventually got closer.

    Have a great break.  Your Y3 team.

    Chinese New Year

    What a fantastic week we’ve had celebrating and learning all about Chinese New Year. We welcomed in the Year of the Pig by using the Green Screen to create images of us in China. We have also made dragons eyes out of clay as the Chinese believe dragons remove bad luck.

    Fractions and diary entries

    What a fantastic week we’ve had. The children have began to read -Around the World in 80 days. After reading the opening of the book we have looked at diary writing, the children will be writing their own diary entry next week imagining they have travelled to France. 


    In Maths we are beginning to look at fractions. We have matched fractions to images and even managed to find equivalent fractions. How amazing are we!


    Lets hope next week is just as amazing! Your Y3 team
