In maths this week we have been subtracting multiples of ten from 2 digit numbers, we were very good at counting back in tens! We know that when we take a multiple of ten away from a 2 digit number, the units digit always stays the same.
This week we have been learning all about capacity. We had fun estimating and measuring the capacity of different containers using non-standard units. We then began to look at standard units of measure and investigated which containers could hold more than 1 litre of water and which could hold less than 1 litre.
Class 3 did brilliantly in their assembly all about being healthy. They read lots of facts, acted out a story, read an acrostic poem and sang songs with loud, clear voices. Well done, class 3!
Class 3 are designing and creating structures using recycled materials as part of this terms art topic. They had fun making their structures and sticking on sugar paper to make them more colourful. Our classroom got very messy…
The children will begin to add more detail to their structures next week.
Class 3 have been learning all about 3D shapes. The children went on a 3D shape hunt and found lots of different 3D shapes in the environment. Then they named and labelled a range of 3D shapes and identified how many faces, edges and vertices each shape has.
Class 3 had a great trip to The Word yesterday. They recorded a video in the green screen room about the countries that Barnaby Bear has visited, and enjoyed using different apps on the iPads.
Class 3 have been practising counting in fives. They completed ‘multiplication wheels’ using their knowledge of the five times table.
Class 3 are wearing their pyjamas for comic relief today. We have learned all about the charity and who it helps, and designed our own Comic Relief noses.
Thank you for your kind donations.
Class 3 performed brilliantly in their class assembly all about spring. They read out some lines from their acrostic poems and acted out the story of ‘the Prince of Butterflies’. Great singing and dancing too! Well done, class 3.
Class 3 have been reading the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’ and enjoyed tasting some of the delicious fruits that Handa took to her friend Akeyo in the story, like mango, pineapple, avocado and banana. We used our senses to come up with brilliant adjectives to describe each fruit.
