Super Subtraction

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.

Capacity

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.

Super Structures

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.

3D Shape Hunt

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.

Spring is in the Air

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.

Handa’s Surprise

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.
