This week, the children have enjoyed taking part in lots of activities as part of their curriculum learning.
As mentioned in our previous blog post, Year Three participated in a PDL session on British Values. They produced a beautiful display about Mutual Respect, along with their own prayers for the victims of the Manchester and London attacks. Please see the photos below:
In Guided Reading, Year Three have been studying the play, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The children have learned about stage directions and narration. They have also been taught a variety of other organisational features within play scripts. During the week, the children rehearsed a scene from the play with their peers, then performed it in front of their classmates! Please see the photos below…
In English, the children have drafted and edited their ‘healthy eating’ stories. On Thursday and Friday, the children were then able to publish their picture/story books. We were very impressed by the children’s beautiful handwriting and presentation – there are some excellent examples on our class WAGOLL board! (What A Good One Looks Like).
In Maths, the children have continued to learn about portion sizes as part of their ‘Healthy Eating’ topic, through fraction work. For instance, they have been calculating unitary and non-unitary fractions of amounts e.g. 1/10 of 20 bananas, as well as 3/6 of 18 apples. Can you calculate fractions of ‘amounts’ at home, for example 2/3 of your story books or even 2/5 of your colouring pencils?
We hope you all have a brilliant weekend,
See you on Monday!
