Mr McGregor and Mrs Lyon-Lee have provided the following learning update:
It has been an enjoyable and productive end to the Summer Term for Year 3.
In English, we have read ‘Madame Pamplemousse and her Incredible Edibles’ by Rupert Kingfisher. This inspired us to create and write our very own recipes for our very own incredible edibles. We have also written and performed poetry to an audience using the book.
In Maths, we have consolidated our timestables and fractions knowledge. We focussed on using the grid method for multiplication of two and one digit numbers and for fractions we compared, and ordered fractions in terms of if, they were greater than, less than or equal to one another.
In Topic, we have been learning about what plants need to grow successfully. We conducted two experiments, which helped us learn that plants need water, warmth, food and sunlight for healthy growth. Year 3, also looked at the human skeleton, the highlight was when we conducted an experiment where an egg represented the brain and we trialled different types of materials (bubble wrap, tissue, sponge and foil) to see which would make the best skull to protect the egg (brain) as we dropped it from various heights
