Hello everyone!

This week in class 3 we are focusing on the 8 times table, as well as multiplying 2 digits by 1 digit numbers. We will also be working on solving a problem using trail and error during our problem solving session on Friday.

In writing this week, we are going to be focusing on the story ‘The Tunnel’ and the children will have an opportunity to plan their own adventure stories.

In our topic this week, we will be learning about tornadoes and how they are formed. We will also be painting our volcanoes and carrying out an experiment to make them erupt! I will be uploading pictures of the eruptions later on in the week.

In RE, we will be learning about Salvation and focusing on the key question of ‘Why do Christians call the day Jesus died Good Friday?’. The children will be exploring this question through a variety of different artworks and reflections.

We will be having our golf and dance sessions as usual this week.

Please remember to bring in your reading journal on Thursday to make sure you get your certificate in assembly!

There will be a mixed times table test this Friday- with questions from all the times tables that we have learned so far. So get practicing!

Here are some pictures of our volcanoes so far, as well as a display of our wow work and Petey’s adventures!

In maths this week we are continuing to work on multiplication and division, while using our concrete resources to help us to reach the answer. We will be working on our x4 and x8 during class time, so I will be testing both group 1 and 2 on these times tables on Friday.

In writing, we are beginning to work on adventure stories and how they are structured. This week in class we have read ‘Gorilla’ and will also be working on ‘The Tunnel’. We will be identifying the different characters and drawing comparisons between them using our inference skills.

In Science, we are creating our magnetic games that we planned last week. The children will be using magnets and paperclips to test these games out. In D & T we are creating our volcano models (which we will be painting later on in the week). In Geography, we are learning about tsunamis and how they are formed. We will also be having our dance and golf sessions as usual this week.

Please remember to bring in your reading journals on Thursday.
