Year 3C (Miss Loftus)
Summer 2. We cannot believe that we only have a few weeks to go! We have so much to fit in!
Week beginning 27 June we have DT week which will see us making our own moving monsters. Keep your eyes peeled for images showing the designing, making and evaluating process!
On Thursday 30 June we are celebrating sports day in the afternoon on the school field. It would be great to see parents and carers there!
We visited Broughton Library in December. Quite a few of us have been back and borrowed some fascinating books!
Throughout the Autumn Term, we enjoyed our PE lessons with Mr Bailey, where we were involved in lots of fun multi-sports activities...
In Spring 1, we listened to music and created our own dance patterns to the beats. We travelled in a variety of ways - from zooming speedily, to plodding lazily. Also, we used adverbs to describe our travelling!
Now we are going swimming and most of us are really progressing! Some of 3C had never been swimming, but you can't tell which ones as we all give 100% each week!
During Autumn 2, we enjoyed adding numbers with up to 3-digits, using the column method. First, we added numbers in columns without bridging, using base 10. Then, if we felt confident, we moved onto exchanging where we enjoyed exchanging ten ones for a ten or ten tens for a hundred by playing a dice game against our partner. This gave us the skills we needed to add two numbers that bridge through the tens and hundreds.
In Spring and Summer, we used our knowledge to begin to use more formal methods of addition. We also started to look at column subtraction!
During Autumn 1 in 3C, we enjoyed learning all about volcanoes. We were independent learners, researching lots of information using the internet and topic books.
