Class: Year 3 – Gentle Giraffes - Week Ending: 28.9.17

weekly Learning Review

Class: Year 3 – Gentle Giraffes        Week Ending: 28.9.17
In Literacy, we have read the first two chapters of Flat Stanley. We have explored the main character’s feelings and thoughts via role playing, expanding our vocabulary and practising writing in the first person. In addition to that, we’ve described one of the book’s scenes by drawing it and, afterwards, labelling it using expanded noun phrases.
In Reading, the children have listened to the beginning ofEsio Trot and have predicted what might happen next. We’ve held interesting discussions about the characters’ behaviours and their motives.

This week in Maths, the children’s learning has been focused on place value. Children are now able to recognise the value of each digit in a three-digit number; to compare and order numbers up to one thousand and to find ten or one hundred more or less than a given number. During the lessons, the children have also practised counting from zero in multiples of four, eight and fifty.
The topic for the first half term is Animals, including Humans. We have learned that animals, including humans, need the right types and amounts of nutrition, and that they cannot make their own food; unlike plants. The children have drawn a variety of food and after that they have classified it into two different groups: healthy and unhealthy food.
The children have also learnt that there is another way to classify food (into carbohydrates, proteins, dairy, fats and oils and sugars).
I’m a Geographer is the name of the first half term’s topic. Children have used maps and have located different places in them (including the continents and oceans). They have also learnt how to use an atlas and its index.
Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship Education
Settling in’ - The children, alongside the teacher, have voted for their classroom rules.
They have played different board games and have reflected on the necessity of having rules in board games as well as in the school and other social contexts.
