Firstly, I would like to wish all the Year 3 Mums a wonderful and special Mother’s Day this weekend. The children have spent quite some time this week making you some Mother’s Day surprises - I hope you like them. We are holding a Mothering Sunday tree planting event on Sunday morning after Mass - please come along. You can plant a tree with a dedication for £1, and there will be drinks and cakes available after for a donation.
Yet again the weeks seem to be flying by and we have had another busy week in Year 3…
In Maths we have been learning how to add numbers using partitioning. Firstly we did this with two digit numbers and then we moved on to three digit numbers. This was tricky and we had to remember the place value of our numbers before we could start.
In English we finished our discussion texts and had a wonderful debate about whether cats or dogs make better pets.
In Science we conducted an experiment in to water transportation using flowers and food colouring, which didn't quite go to plan! We are going to re do this next week using celery instead of flowers to see if we get better results.
In R.E. we learnt more about The Lost Son and how this parable relates to Reconciliation. The children wrote some wonderful letters as The Lost Son to his Father.
In History we have started to learn about Boudicca and her rebellion against the Romans.
Our award winners this week were:
Maths: Lila. For her super focus during Maths lessons
Writing: Grace. For a well thought out discussion text
Golden: Eliza. For always shining her light for Jesus
A wonderful week had by all!
Have a lovely weekend and please see the Homework tab for this week’s tasks.
