The Rainforest


This week, the children have continued to enjoy learning about the Rainforest across different subject areas.

In English, Year 3 have been taught how to use a variety of nouns and pronouns to make their writing more engaging. Having studied the non-fiction text Animal Shark Diaries by Steve Parker, the children have embraced the challenge of incorporating nouns and pronouns when producing their own Sloth Diary information pages.

In Maths, both classes have continued to apply their knowledge of addition and subtraction to a range of contexts including data analysis, money problems and missing number challenges. To support their learning, the children have been encouraged to use Maths Toolkits, verbal reasoning, expanded column methods, number lines and bar models so as to help them interpret a series of difficult word problems. Well done for all of your commitment and success, Year Three!

We hope that you are all enjoying a well deserved half term break. We would like to thank all the children for their perseverance and hard work this term. We are very grateful to all parents for their continued support of Home Learning, which has enabled the children to explore their Rainforest topic in further depth. Here are a couple of photos to show some more examples of the incredible work that Year Three have produced…

Next term, we look forward to introducing Year Three to their new history topic, The Romans. Home learning pyramids shall be distributed after half term. Perhaps the children could begin to research an area of their new topic that fascinates them, over the holidays.

We wish you all a peaceful and enjoyable break,

Miss Honeywell and Mr Austin
