Yr 3 Curriculum Update

Firstly, thank you for all your donations and support during our Harvest festival celebrations.  The children did us all really proud with their delivery and we supported Southampton City Mission with our numerous donations.

Maths

This week we have continued to work on our fluency, reasoning and problem solving whilst working within Maths.   We have been looking closely at Multiplication and Division (understanding the inverse) and have been working hard at our 3 times tables in particular.  The children have enjoyed taking responsibility for their learning and have been using the self check sheets to push their learning forwards at a quicker rate.

English

We have continued to read James and the Giant Peach and the children are engrossed.  When we have been writing about what will happen next in the story the children have been using ADDSPICE for our sentence starters.  A=Adverbs, D=describe, D=drop clause, S=simile, P=preposition, I=ing words, C=connectives/conjunctions and E=ed words.  The children have been able to write with greater variety using this system and are becoming highly proficient!
