The weeks are just flying by! I can't believe we only have 4 more weeks left together!
In maths we have finished our learning about time, started our unit on properties of shapes AND fit in two maths papers! Phew!! The children have worked super hard and I've been really proud of them.
We have focused on our grammar skills in English this week. We looked at root words, prefixes and suffixes and also explored how combinations of these create word families. We looked at adding the prefixes super-, anti-, auto-, sub- and inter- to different root words and explored how these change the meanings of the words.
We also completed two guided reading papers and the children did brilliantly. As a class, our reading skills have come on in leaps and bounds this year and it's another reason for me to be so proud of the children.
Welcome to our new classmate Haryshwa, who has joined us in Year 3. Just as I expected, the children have been really welcoming and supportive and we are really excited to have Haryshwa join us.
In science we have looked at magnetic fields and investigated which materials are magnetic and non-magnetic. This was a very exciting lesson and we were surprised to learn that not all metals are magnetic.
We have loved our Spanish lesson this week. Between our half term and Miss Williams' half term, it feels like forever since we last had our Spanish lesson, so we were super excited!
We have enjoyed continuing our sports skills this week, with cricket with Mrs Baron and tennis with me.
In geography we continued to look at megacities. This week we looked at Baghdad and why it was the first city to reach 1 million inhabitants! We then looked at the top ten populous cities in the UK and also the top ten fastest growing cities in the UK. Our geography is really challenging us as well as peaking our interest at the moment.
Have a lovely weekend.
