Year 3 Learning



This term, in maths, we have been looking at 10 more and 10 less. Also, we have our own app 'Times Tables Rock Stars'. We have also been learning about greater than and less than as well as counting in 50s, 100s and 1000s.  Our teacher, Mrs Salzano, gives us number card challenges to make certain numbers greater than or less than another number as well as function machines problems. She also gives us number line challenges and also gives us worksheets for us to stick in our maths books.

In English, we have been doing lots of interesting things including Trap Door which is a little cartoon and it has lots of information.  We only watched one single episode but we did about 3 weeks of work on it. After that we moved on to 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' which is a hilarious story about a rotting woolly mammoth and his owner wants to clean him up. We are currently learning about a sabre tooth tiger. Did you know that a sabre tooth tigers prey is taxonomies? In English we also have words of the day and today's current word is 'incredible'

So far this year, we have been learning about 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth'.  The letter was about the mammoth’s bath time, or a hullaballoo. Then we wrote instructions about how to wash him. The instructions also included a Fabulous Preamble, and you and your shoulder partner [person next to you] have the same Preamble because you’ve both wrote it together. You would write it in your book after you’ve planned it on scrap paper.  After we had planned our preamble we wrote an incredible letter to our best friend back at home.

We have labelled parts of a lily and we cut open a lily and looked inside it.  We have talked about lilies and filled in missing words from the parts of a flower.  Also we talked about what their job is and how they help bees with their jobs as well because flowers carry pollen and bees need pollen to make honey.
