Friday 17th September 2021
In Maths this week, we have begun understanding and using hundreds and 3 digit numbers in our learning. We used lots of equipment to explore this concept before moving on to tricky problems to solve. In Literacy, the class continued their work on setting descriptions making sure we use capital letters, full stops, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases in our writing.
In Geography we explored and located different UK cities on our own maps; the children loved spotting the different locations (see pictures below)! Herons have also practised the 4 types of Netball passes in PE as well as enjoying some new French vocabulary!
Eloise is our star of the week this week - Eloise has been challenging herself and encouraging others!

Our First Week of Year 3!
Friday 10th September 2021
In Herons this week, we have been busy learning about our new Geography topic 'Welcome Home'. We recapped the 4 countries in the UK using atlases and made a key identifying which was which. We can tell you their capital cities and some of us plotted these on our own maps! As part of this learning, the children did some skyline art based on the four capital cities, which some brought home to you! Others are on display!
As well as this, we got stuck in to our class book 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Phillip Pullman. This will help us with our learning in Literacy and Guided Reading. The children also had a look at some French sounds, recapped plants from year 2 and learnt about a new song with Mrs Salmons in Music!
Sam is our star of the week this week - Sam showed all three school rules and had produced some well- presented, thoughtful and impressive work already!
