We’ve been applying our mental maths skills and place value knowledge when playing maths games this week.
This week in maths we are problem solving. This morning we solved a logic problem. We had to help the farmer take a fox, hen and bag of grain across the river in his boat. Can you remember the rules? What was difficult about this problem? Did we solve it on our first attempt? What other types of problems have we solved this week in mathematics?
This week in literacy/history we learnt about mummification. We read and ordered instructions and then used them to help us mummify Barnaby Bear! We even had a go at mummifying our friends,
although Miss Davis said we should keep our organs including our brains.
Wow! What a busy first few weeks back we’ve had Year 3. I hope you agree that we are very lucky to have such a lovely new school? Miss Middleton and I are very proud of how well you have all settled in and how hard you have been working.
We have already started to learn about the importance of healthy eating and our bodies in science and DT and are currently making a non chronological report in literacy sharing all our scientific knowledge. Also in history we have been learning about Ancient Egypt and we even made our own pyramids this week! Rumour has it that next week you will be learning about Egyptian mummies and might even get to have a try for yourself. I wonder how you might do this? Any ideas?
Hello Aspen and Ash class, this is our Year 3 blog! Above are images of our trees. What have you learnt about your class tree? Write a comment and let us know.
