What a fantastic performance from Year 3, singing 3 Little Birds by Bob Marley.
Today we were sorting 2d shapes into Venn diagrams. We discussed lots of properties of the shapes. Including whether they were polygons or not, did they have any right angles , were they quadrilaterals or not etc.
Year 3 have been learning all about right angles. We investigated objects in our classroom and sorted them into right angles, acute or obtuse angles. We had lots of fun !
We wrote secret messages to Vikings using Viking runes.
Today we made fraction posters, using all the different ways we have been learning about them. Including pizza fractions, number lines and adding fractions to make 1 whole.
We used our designs from yesterday to help make our brooches. We used tools to make marks and patterns on the brooches and we added jewels just like the Vikings would have.
Year 3 have been design their very own Viking Brooches, we have learnt that they were used for fastening their clothes together. They were also a piece of decorative jewllery.
This week Year 3 have been learning how to do fractions, using pictures of pizza slices.
Today year 3 have been playing a word class game, discussing adverbs, pronouns, determiners, adjectives, nouns and verbs.
We have been learning about colours and this helped us colour in our masks well. We will use them to tell a story next week.
In Spanish we have been making animal masks from the story we have been learning.
Today Year 3 went to the Marist Centre. The children engaged in lots of activities around the theme of Forgiveness. It was a very enjoyable experience and the children behaved exceptionally well.
