This week the children have applied the learning values of creativity and critical thinking across their studies.
In English, Year 3 have been experimenting with different sentence structures (simple, compound and complex) and have also practised incorporating dialogue into narrative. They have also started to plan their own rainforest stories, which they look forward to writing, editing and publishing next week. We have been very impressed by the imaginative ideas of the children, well done Year Three!
In Maths, the children have been exploring measurements (cm, mm, g, kg, L) and applying their knowledge of expanded column methods and bar models in order to solve a series of complex, multi-step word problems. Both classes have shown real commitment to their learning, particularly when faced with some tricky open-ended maths problems!
Once again, the children have amazed our Year 3 team with the inventive, creative home learning that they have produced. It has been great to witness the children’s enthusiasm and interest for their new Rainforest topic.
We hope you all have a peaceful and enjoyable weekend,
Miss Honeywell and Mr Austin.
