Another very busy week in Class 3 from newspaper report writing to mastering our 3x table!
Over the last two weeks the children have been working on newspaper report writing. They have worked incredibly hard with writing in third person, even changing from first to third person a ridiculously tricky concept but one that the children have really started to master. We have come up with a class draft, individual planning formats and research sessions which have then transformed into such fabulous newspaper reports about whether cave paintings are art or graffiti. I cannot wait to display these in the classroom and complete our fantastic Stone Age display.
In maths this week, the children have been mastering their 3x table knowledge involving both multiplying and dividing within this table. The children have been using arrays to multiply and sharing when dividing which has seen some beautiful work being produced by all children in the class. We are extremely proud of the children's work and their effort and enthusiasm towards learning their tables, please keep it up! Today the children played a game using dice where they had to role a number in the three times table, which saw their adding and multiplication knowledge and recall excel (it was also lots of fun!)
Science this week, children discovered lots of facts about Mary Anning and her importance in scientific research and findings. They learnt about her fossil discoveries and love for curiosities.
In Topic, the children were learning about Stone Age Diet which of course was cause for an investigation, an investigation of Stone Age poo!! Identifying the substances in these organic remains allowed the children to understand what a Stone Age diet consisted of and caused a discussion into whether this was a healthy diet. A very fun but smelly lesson! I think this was a particular favourite with the children.
In PE, Mr. Smith handed out a medal for someone who is consistent, caring, competitive and co-operative with all other team players. Such amazing and fabulous qualities in which Morgan has shown and been noticed for...well done Morgan, very much deserved!
Another great week for Class 3, with a very special, exciting week to come...
