Year 3 Class - 3G - Summer - 2017 - 2018

Welcome to Class 3G
Our Teacher is Mr Greaves and our teaching assistant is Miss Mills.
We're in the Summer term now, lots of hard but fun work ahead!
Some important notes:
Our PE lessons are on Tuesday
Our Dance lessons are on Friday
Homework goes out on a Monday and is due back on the Friday
We are also going swimming this half term! Swimming kits (costume/towel/goggles in a bag) will be needed every Wednesday for the first 5 weeks, 11am - 12:30
Parents: Please try to read at home with your child every night, even for just 5-10minutes and then sign their home reading record. It really does make a massive difference to their progression in reading and other subjects!
Home reading in 3G
We do lots of reading in Year 3, but we can always do more (plus it's fun too!)
We receive two Dojo points every time we read at home, get our home reading book signed by an adult and bring it back into school. That's ten points every week! If we manage to do this for a whole week, we also receive a bookmark!
There are 16 bookmarks to collect. Can you collect them all?
Dance competition
Our We've spent the past few weeks practising our dance routine ready for the big competition and today was performance day. We loved watching the other dancers, had lots of fun with the other KS2 classes and got a massive round of applause for our dance too! Whilst we didn't win, we did really well and can be very proud of what we have achieved. Hopefully there will be another competition next year too!
Maths - Telling the time
Our new maths topic is 'time'.
We have started by practising what we learned last year and getting up to speed with checking our class clocks to see what time lessons are starting and how long there is left to go. We've done a lot of work using small clocks to practise making specific times and testing each other too.
Time is sometimes a bit tricky, but practise makes perfect and we're well on our way!
Parents: test us at home as much as you can to help us out
Geography - finding European countries
For our Geography topic on 'Barcelona, Spain and Europe', we started to identify which countries are part of Europe and where they can be found. We made use of atlases, maps and even used coordinates to pin-point exactly where the countries were. This was quite tricky, but we were more than ready for the challenge and worked together well to pool our resources.
Cooking - Healthy pizzas
We had a treat in store for us today; cooking in the hall! Dressed in our finest chefs hats and aprons, we set about making the most amazing, creative and tasty (but also healthy) pizzas possible. Luckily, we had some of our parents come to help us too - thank you very much! - and there were smiles all round.

Geography - Messy maps
We Continuing our work investigation Barcelona, Spain and Europe, we took a closer look at Spain today by creating 'Messy maps' in small groups. We used a whole array of different maps and sources of information to find out where mountains were located, where forests, rivers and cities could be found and even where the major roads were. We then recreated those features on a 3D sculpted map of Spain accurately and labelled the features.
Some amazing maps and teamwork! More photos to come
