One Childhood, One Chance

Year 3 Weekly News - 30.9.22

We are over halfway into Term 1 and the children have really settled into their classes.  Our learning is fantastic and the children are showing wonderful learning behaviours.


This week we began our new book, 'The Princess and the White Bear King'. We focused on settings this week, describing the princess's bedroom and the wintery woods. We used wonderful descriptive vocabulary to describe. Next week we will be writing character descriptions of the bear, the princess and the evil queen.


This week we have been working on subtraction. We used number lines to understand 'difference' and can use the terms more and fewer. By the end of the week we used our manipulatives to understand subtraction using place value. We will eventually be subtracting 2 and 3 digit numbers so this will really support their understanding. Next week we will be learning multiplication. Here we are using our diennes to subtract...


We continued learning about the Romans in our History learning. This week we learnt that they believed in many different Gods and Goddesses. We are gaining lots of new knowledge about the past ready to show you in our celebration of learning where we create a Roman Museum for you!


The children will come home with their MyMaths login this week. They have been set a task on MyMaths with subtraction.

Follow the link above to gain access. Please get in touch if you are having difficulty accessing this online learning. We also have copies printed out if you are unable to get online. These can be completed and stuck into their love to learn books.
