Year 3 Weekly Review
Friday 30th November 2018
It has been a cold but exciting week here at Ravenstone. We have been using geographical enquiry, conducting this on Balham high road and we have been investigating magnets thinking scientifically.
English: This week we began a new text called Ottoline and the Yellow Cat by Chris Riddell. The children are already fully immersed in the mystery and we have been creating co-constructed success criteria for writing postcards. Next week, we will be continuing to read Ottoline and the Yellow cat, writing a prediction based on what we think will happen in the next chapter. This will have grammar elements such as writing in the future tense.
Maths: This week we continued to look at multiplication, specifically the 3 and 4 times table. This included looking at a range of representations such as bar models, part, part whole models and pictorial representations. Next week we will be looking at the 8 times tables.
PSHE: This week we designed posters to help us sell our wonderful salt dough decorations. The children showed wonderful community spirit in doing this and learnt about the features of an advertisement. Next week we will begin to look at coughs and colds and sneezes and how bacteria and viruses spread.
