Welcome to Year 3
This year the class will be taught by Mrs Maund-Molloy (Please use the name Mrs Molloy).
Well, Class Three have made an excellent start to the term with all childrens' work ethic and behaviour staying 'Good to be Green'. Mrs Neary and I are so proud of all the children in how they present themselves in class and around school in general, displaying high moral values and taking pride in all that they do in work and play.
Over the past few weeks, we have been working on Place Value in Maths and using different representations for number such as Base 10 and Place Value counters to represent 3-digit numerals.
We are currently working towards writing a 'Stone Age' Newspaper Report. So far, we have learnt about what a newspaper looks like including: its features, the 5 Ws (ask your child), how to use conjunctions, alliteration (seriously silly Stone Age sisters), and all the while learning about Pre-History, starting with the Stone Age. Our Drama based around this topic, is in a very early stage but hopefully will inform our writing.
Class Three are learning about Rocks in Science and so far have learned about Kit Kats, Crunchies and Curly Wurlys, maybe you should ask your child about these types of rocks!
We attempted to churn butter yesterday in order to learn about the word (see spellings for this week) WHEY, but alas the butter did not emerge. We'll try again next week.
Let's keep working on our handwriting this next week and making sure that our presentation is the very best it can be.
For now though, over and out from me.
After a democratic vote, I'm pleased to announce that our Class 3 School Council Representatives are:
Joseph & Ann.
Children in YR3 have been watching and discussing The Snowman ready to write an assessment piece. They have been working on the mechanics of story writing including layout, paragraphs, writing to entertain an audience and how to use punctuation and figurative speech. Now that children have been taught these skills, they are going to show that they can apply them in their December Writing Assessment.
Good luck Class Three!
