This half term, we have created our own setting descriptions. The setting we focused on was taken from Christina Balit’s ‘Escape from Pompeii’ as this combined our English and Geography learning. We worked incredibly hard to explore setting descriptions, identify features within them and then, finally, write our own. We edited our writing too!
We began the new year focusing on two of the four operations: multiplication and division. Following this, we moved on to money where we recognised coins, discovered methods to add and subtract as well as found change. We also practised our arithmetic skills with some of us making over five marks of progress in our weekly tests! We can’t wait to develop our learning even further next half term!
As previously said, our Geography focus has been at the core of our learning this half term. We have learned all about the layers of the Earth, even creating our own Play-doh models to show this! Then, we explored how volcanoes are formed and what makes them erupt. We learnt a lot of new vocabulary along the way! We also created our own art work too which shows our paint mixing techniques.
What a half term! Well done, Year 3!
