Year 3 weekly news 29.11.19
This week in English we have continued reading books written by Anthony Browne. We chose to read Voices in the Park, which recounts a visit to the park by four different people at the same time. We love this book because it gives us a chance to understand that even though you can be in the same place as somebody, you may see things very differently. We used powerful vocabulary, similes and metaphors to describe the park from two different points of view.
In maths we were learning about statistics and how to record information in pictograms and bar charts. We have also been interpreting these charts, including questions which compare two different sets of data by finding how many more or how many less. We used different scales for the axis of the bar charts e.g scales going up in 1s, 2s, 5s, and 20s.
We have learnt about the heart. We learnt that the heart's function is to pump blood around the body and we also labelled a diagram of the heart. We also learnt about things that can have negative effects on the heart and blood vessels, such as smoking and an unhealthy diet. We looked at what a healthy diet consists of and the purpose of the foods that we eat e.g protein for growth, dairy for calcium and carbohydrates for energy.
On Wednesday 4th at 9 o'clock it is Team Cornflower's class assembly. Parents and carers are invited to come along.
On Friday 13th there is an opportunity to eat Christmas Lunch with your child at school. Letters have been sent out today and need to be returned no later than Friday 6th December.
On Tuesday 17th we will be holding the KS2 Christmas service at St Lawrence Church at 10 am. Parents and carers are invited to come along and join in.
There will be more correspondence in due course for Christmas events.
