This week has flown by.
In Maths this week we learned to recognise angles in various 2d shapes and capital letters. Also we learned that an acute angle is smaller than a right angle and an obtuse angle is larger than a right angle.
In English we have been exploring the book ‘The Flower’. This is a story about a man named Brigg, who lives in a dull and lifeless city. Eventually he comes across some books in a library that say ‘DO NOT TOUCH’. Of course Brigg takes one of the books and smuggles it out of the library. He finds a packet of seeds in the book and plants the seeds, finding that these seeds make a beautiful flower. Devastatingly, the flower gets sucked up by a cleaning system in Brigg’s house. Before reading the story, we made predictions as to what we thought might happen in the story and then gave our opinions on whether we liked the story or not, backing up our opinions with reasons. In addition, we analysed the characters from the story and used our imaginations to write thought bubbles for each character.
We’ve also had a lot of fun this week as its been ART WEEK! We are using the greek myth of Medusa to inspire our art. We have drawn our own figure of Medusa and designed patters using wax and watercolours for the background. Pictures to follow!
Next week’s spellings are:
Have a joyous weekend.
P.S. If you’ve not bought in your zoo trip letter please do so next week. I’ll be picking names out of the hat for parents to join us next week. The office will notify you if you are chosen as a helper.
We had a great but very wet time today at the greenhouses. We got to use magnifying glasses to look up closely at different parts of the plant, plant our own seeds and even taste local honey made by the bees st the greenhouses.
Just a reminder to make sure your child has a waterproof jacket in school today as we will be at brockwell greenhouses this afternoon and working outside whatever the weather!
This week has been a super jam-packed week in Year 3.
In Maths this week we have been learning that a quarter turn is the same as a right angle and we have learnt how to recognise right angles in different shapes. Next week we will be learning to recognise that an acute angle is smaller than a right angle and an obtuse angle is larger than a right angle.
In science we have learnt about plants. We learnt what the different parts of the plant do. Did you know that the roots suck up water for the plant but also hold the plant in place? Without the roots the plant would blow away in strong wind. Next week we will be reading the book ‘The Flower’.
On Monday all Year 3 will be going to the Brockwell Greenhouses. We have been informed that we will be working outside no matter the weather. Please make sure that your child brings a coat if it looks like rain.
The spellings for next week are:
A trip letter has gone home today about our zoo trip. We have reduced the price as we are holding a cake sale on Tuesday 18th June. Please help us out by making lots of cakes.
Have a wonderful weekend.
This afternoon we played various tag games for our p.e. lesson. It was great fun!
