The children’s homework on the Celts was really impressive. The Roman topic is inspiring some amazing writing in class. I am so proud of everyone.
Isabelle has suggested a couple of links to find out more. Thanks Issy!
In Numeracy lessons we are going to be looking at fractions. Some fractions are equivalent – which ones? Maybe you would like to find out?
One of the best parts of the trip was the children performing the tortoise shell operation! Here’s a video:
Here are 3JH at their most fearsome:

On Friday the children will be wearing pink (or red!) to help raise money for the charities that have helped Emilie Austen in the past year. As part of the charity activities the children have been asked to sing to Emilie. This is the song we will be singing in the assembly. Get practising!
The class will soon be going to Chester! We know that the Romans were once in Chester – but I wonder what else you might know about their stay? Let me know with your comments.
We’ve has another busy couple of weeks in Year 3. In literacy we have been learning all about persuasive writing and how to back up our opinions with evidence. The children all wrote a short essay about One Direction – they’ve certainly split opinion in the class! In numeracy we have been looking at division. The method are using for division is called the number line method. This video has a good explanation of how it works:
This week we had some good fun making cheese straws. Before the straws were baked all the children designed the packaging for their straws. This was a fun project!

A final note to say good luck to Issy on her mission to bag a Munro! If you would like to learn more about her charity hike, visit this website and donate:
The conway trip was AMAZING! The sun was shining, the activities were excellent and – despite a late night and early morning (!) – a fun time was had by all. All the staff commented on the outstanding behaviour on the trip, and this certainly contributed to the positive atmosphere. I hope all the children are looking forward to future residentials with the school.

It has been another busy week here in Year 3. The children are now masters of instruction writing, so we had some fun and made a set of instructions for the creation of a pirate ship.
In numeracy lessons we have been working with amounts of money and finding change.
Our current science topic is magnets and springs. This week we carried out an investigation to show which magnet was the strongest.
The children have also started to use ideas from their homework to design their own packaging. In the next few weeks the children will make cheese staws and have a box to take them home in.
On Wednesday, some of the class helped in the school garden. It is starting to look fantastic, and we must say thank you to Mrs Clarke and Mrs Curran for coming to help the children!
