Happy New Year!
Year 3 have returned to school with smiles on their faces and are ready to learn. They have been busy getting stuck into their new ICE zone topic, Ancient Egyptians. The children have started working on fact files and have also produced some lovely art pieces, sketching from various artefacts and photographs.
In literacy, the children are starting a new unit all about Explanation texts. We will start by exploring a variety of examples before the children get the chance to write their own piece explaining all about their own invention.
In maths, the children have been learning all about fractions. They have been finding fractions of numbers, fractions of shapes and have been solving some tricky problems. They will also be using their division skills during these sessions and are regularly practising their mental maths skills.
In science, the children have been learning all about forces and magnets. They have had the chance to complete numerous experiments and have enjoyed finding out new facts during this topic.
