Year 3 Raven Class
Year 3 is a friendly, co-operative class, where we work and play hard! We do a range of activities, working independently, in partners and in groups. We love using our interactive whiteboard and do so in most lessons. We use drama to stimulate our imaginations and help us with our writing.
Week Commencing 19th March 2018
This week has, yet again, been very busy for Raven class. In maths the children have been understanding measure through investigations. They have worked with length, capacity and mass, understanding the different units of measure and how to ensure accuracy when using the equipment. They finished the week by choosing a question to investigate. We had questions such as: who has the longest arm, which blocks weigh the most and which jug will holds the greatest amount of water? From this the children then plotted their result on a bar graph, again ensuring accuracy with the scales.
We have moved our English on this week from describing characters to setting description. We have used the Rainforest as our stimulus to create wonderful paragraphs of work. We have focused on using our 5 senses, prepositions, expanded noun phrase and conjunctions. We have also looked at how we can really improve our own work by editing and improving the piece.
In Science this week, the children have enjoyed writing their own investigations for a fair test. They talked about only changing one variable in the investigation to make it fair but also so we know that this will affect the outcome of the investigation. Next week they will run their investigations and see if they predictions were right.
Please look inside the homework and spelling books to find each weeks tasks.
We are beginning to allocate specific Literacy Planet work to children during class and also for homework. This week please log on to Literacy Planet following this link https://app.literacyplanet.com/login and attempt the challenges set for you. We will discuss in class next week how you got on and problems or difficulties your child had. The Literacy Planet Login is the same one the children used for Wordmania before Chirstmas and a further copy of it can be found in their reading record book.
