Year 3 2019 - 2020
Ahoy There Year 3!
It has been a busy half term for our pirate crew!
During our exciting pirate day, we were lucky enough to meet a real pirate who was able to share his insight into pirate life including showing artefacts and giving details of his own experiences. As part of the day, we designed our own pirate flags, enjoyed a pirate feast and were lucky enough to discover some real rubies left by Pirate Dan at the end of our challenging pirate treasure hunt! We were overwhelmed with all of the incredible costumes made. Thank you to all the parents and children for contributing to such a memorable day. Please see our gallery for pirate mugshots!
Our pirate adventure this half-term...
During English we have been creating our own exciting pirate adventures, thinking about the characters, settings and plots. We had a particular focus on varying our sentences using fronted adverbials, subordinating conjunctions and expanded noun phrases to create our own imaginative stories. We are now immersing ourselves in pirate poetry, identifying devices such as metaphor, onomatpoeia, rhythmn, emotion, repetition, alliteration, pattern and similies.
We have been focussing on consolidating our knowledge of the times tables using various methods such as arrays, number lines and the grid method. We have also been looking at the inverse - division. We have been using arrays, repeated subtraction and most recently chunking to derive our answers.
We look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 11th December at Poynton Baptist Church at 1.30pm to join us with our Christmas festivities!
