Year Three have started learning about perimeter. The children were told that the owners of Liverpool FC wanted to paint a fresh white line around the edge of the pitch. They had to investigate how they might measure the distance the whole way around. Then the child practised measuring the perimeter of smaller 2d shapes.
Monday 4th December was a Year Three’s turn to open an advent gift from the book trust.
This boy was chosen to open the present. It was ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ and we read it today. The children loved it!
The children had to locate a subordinate clause in a sentence that they were given. They then had to cut it up and move it to the beginning of the sentence to create a fronted adverbial. Once they had done that, the children had to fix the punctuation.
The children used a running reporter activity to begin to understand the role of each part of a flower head.
Year Three loved pulling a lily apart to try and find the different parts. The children then had to label the flower head correctly using clues.
The children have been learning about how plants grow and how water is transported through the stem. The children were given flowers with broken stems and different materials that they could use to try and fix them. Once the children had finished, two flowers were put into food dye to see if it was transported through the stem to the flower.
Look how much Ashwaq has improved her handwriting already since September.
This afternoon, Year Three have been thinking about feelings that they experience as well as how they might deal with their own feelings. The children also spoke about how they might recognise good or not so good feelings in others. The children then listened to the story, ‘The Tear Thief’ by Carol Ann Duffy ready for the next lesson.
In PSHCEe this week, we had a discussion about things that young children find difficult. The children thought of many things like staying healthy, learning to read, making friends etc.
The children had a discussion with their partner and decided to go with, ‘How to be healthy.’ and ‘How to help children speak English.’
The children worked with their shoulder partner to research their recommendations and to make a pic collage to share their work.
