Below is a site with lots of games to help you learn your times tables.
There are also a couple of games to play to help with number fact knowledge. Have fun!
Here are your spellings for this week. You will be tested every Wednesday.
Remember to use your 'Dicey' spelling strategies or 'read, cover, write, check' to help you to learn them. Good Luck!
As part of our Music and P.E. sessions this term we are using classical music to inspire us. This week we have been learning about Benjamin Britten and his piece of music called 'Storm' which is part of an opera. We have listened carefully to the dynamics (volume), Tempo (speed) and instruments and used this to guide our movements as we dance. Back in the classroom we then watched the piece of music being played by an orchestra and identified the instruments that were used to create the dramatic part of the storm and the section that represented the storm clouds disappearing and the sun coming out.
Class 3 have been working on their 'Place Value' knowledge today. They have played some games based on important skills to build their fluency when dealing with numbers. We are now working with numbers up to 1000. We have ordered, compared and partitioned numbers. We have followed clues to identify a particular number and we have also represented the same number in many different ways using a range of equipment.
We have kicked off our 'Rocks and Soils' topic this week by searching for rocks around our school. We have looked carefully at how they have been used and realised that they had been used for a wide variety of things! We have discovered that they were different types of rock and often didn't look or feel the same as others. We started asking the question 'what different types of rocks are there?' and 'why had these types of rocks been used for different things?'...we will try to answer these questions this term.
Class 3 have made such a wonderful start to the school year! They have taken on a huge amount of new information and new routines but have done so with maturity and a smile! They particularly impressed us when taking part in a 'treasure hunt' where they had to search for clues and then solve them to find the next one. I am really looking forward to this year and I hope the children are too!
We'd really like to hear what you are enjoying about being in Year 3.

Thank you for your comments so far Class 3s! I am excited about going to the museum as well Nell. I've been before but I always learn something new. I'm looking forward to doing art with you Tess. We will do some painting on Thursday which will involve creating some colour wheels and blending colours from light to dark. I love painting!
