A huge welcome back to the children after their Christmas break and a Happy New Year to you all! I apologise for the delay in writing last week’s blog - the time has flown by! I have to say, I was so impressed with the children’s attitude and behaviour on their return to school last week. They all seemed so mature and I could tell they were well rested and ready to start the new year on a high! Well done Year 3, I hope these fabulous attitudes continue throughout the year.
In Maths last week we were looking at fractions - finding fractions of amounts (using unit and non-unit fractions). The children were very good at this and could complete this work confidently. Well done!
In English we completed a reading assessment to see how far we had progressed since September. Along with their reading quiz results, the children are doing well, however please continue to encourage your child to read at home - daily! The children already spend some time in school reading throughout the school day but they still need to read at home too. Thank you for your on-going support with this.
In Science we looked at magnet strength and we conducted an experiment where we investigated how many paper clips a magnet could hold in a chain. This then told us which magnet was the strongest! We then recorded our results in a bar chart.
In History we completed a quiz on Skara Brae.
In P.E. we carried on with our gymnastics unit from before half term and we started to look at different rolls. We then added them in to sequences we created before Christmas.
Our award winners last week were:
Golden Award - Georgina. Georgina is such a kind and caring member of our class who always carries Jesus in her heart.
Writing Award - Eliza. Eliza wrote a fabulous recount on the story of Sproutboy.
