Our Learning this Week

Word of the Week

 

Every week the children of Year 3 will be learning about and discussing a given word. 

 

This week's word was vacant.

 

The children will be reviewing:

 

  • Synonyms of the word ( similar meaning - different spelling)
  • Etymology ( origins of the word)
  • Definition
  • Using the word in a sentence

Things to discuss at home:

Maths: This week we have been exploring the formal written method. We have used based equipment to set out variation addition equations and worked with sums that don't require regrouping as well as those that do.  You could ask your child to explain why it is important to begin with the ones column.

 

English: This week we have continued to explore "The Lighthouse" animation and added our own narrative. Children have also taken on the perspective of the lighthouse keeper and written messages in a bottle.

Home Learning Celebrations

We have already enjoyed sharing our home learning this week and found out some fascinating facts about Light, some beautiful and original works of art have been brought in for display as well as a number of informative presentations about other artists! Well done to the children who shared what they have found out and created so far.

This week in our Jigsaw lesson we explored the meaning of family through our concept of diversity and adversity. Children demonstrated a wonderful understanding that the foundation of family being people that love and care for one another. We all drew pictures of our own families and discussed what they mean to us and how we're all the same and different.
