Weekly Learning Review 24 January 2018

Weekly Learning Review

Class:      Year 3                      Week Ending: 25/1/2018
This week, we have started a unit of work on mysteries. Over the next few weeks,we will be learning much of our literacy work through this unit. We studied a mystery picture to elicit words to describe the different characters.  We then read as a class a mystery story about a vanishing cake. We discussed the way the story was written and the characters in the mystery. The students then answered some comprehension questions. Please make sure that homework comprehension questions are always answered in full detailed sentences. We have spent time again this week in class practicing. In Grammar, we understood the difference between proper and common nouns. The  children identified the different types of nouns in sentences. Spelling words this week are short e and long e vowel sounds. We spent lots of time on Sunday looking at the words; word structure and meaning. Please help at home each week so children really understand the meaning of the word and how to use it correctly in sentences. The children also had some fun worksheets to go with the spelling words to help further familiarise themselves with the words. On Wednesday, we practiced our cursive handwriting. Creative writing did not take place this week as it is scheduled for a Thursday.
This week, we have learned to count in 10s, 100s and 50s. We did various exercises from the book and worksheets to reinforce the learning. We have also been revising our times tables.  Over the weekend, I would like children to make sure they are experts with the 6 and 7 x tables.
We had a great week in Science looking at how organisms are classified. We watched a power point and completed a cutting and sticking activity to classify various animals. Children are now experts on vertebrate animals and how to classify them
We have been studying Kenya. We have looked at images of Kenya and discussed the human and physical features. We also listed reasons why Kenya is a popular tourist destination and compared it to Egypt. The children then produced a poster showing why people should visit Kenya.
Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship Education
No lesson this week as it is scheduled for Thursday
