This half term Year 3 are reading “The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. The term began by having a scrapheap challenge where the children worked in teams to make their own Iron Man from junk modelling materials. In Science, the children have been exploring forces and magnets with regular opportunities to discover how objects moved on different surfaces and working out which magnet was the most powerful.
The children had lots of fun doing SuperMe! activities in PE with a visiting consultant which explored feelings and emotions as well as encouraging physical movement. In Maths, the children have continued to work with numbers up to 1000, developing fluency when adding and subtracting. They are now learning how to code using Scratch on the class I-pads.
Please can we remind you that regular reading at home and the opportunity to practise Times Tables Rock Stars are essential.
