In our final week of term, Year 3 have an exciting week this week. We are decorating biscuits to raise some money for our school visit from 'Greeky Greek' restaurant next half-term. We are also making our pop-up cards! These bring to life the Greek Legend of Theseus and the Minotaur and we will be sharing them with children around school. In book study, we are coming to the end of our book about Greek Myths which the children have really enjoyed. We will be using our inference skills to discuss why the characters feel and act how they do.
This week year 3 have finished writing our Theseus and Minotaur story and in Design and Technology we have started planning our pop-up card we are going to make next week. In maths, we have started learning about statistics, looking at pictograms. In history, we have been comparing how similar and different we are to the Ancient Greek, thinking about food, clothes and government.
Year 3 starting to write our story of Theseus and the Minotaur. We are concentrating on innovating our actions to make the story our own. In maths, we are using our method we learnt last week of dividing two-digit by one-digit numbers to solve word problems and reasoning questions. In discovery, we have researched Ancient Greek clothing and food and are doing a piece of writing to compare what is similar and different about then and now.
In English, year 3 are looking at our next Greek Myth: Theseus and the Minotaur. We are exploring what makes a good myth and using drama to create vocabulary we will use to help us write the story. In maths, we are moving onto division where we will practice grouping numbers using practical methods. Class 8 will be practising their class assembly ready for Thursday. On Monday, we enjoyed our Poetry morning, where children had the opportunity to discuss and perform a poem to the class. The winning group will be performing in The P Factor in assembly on Friday.
Year 3 have started writing our Greek myth story looking at using subordinating conjunctions and direct speech. We are continuing our multiplication learning in maths concentrating on two digit numbers with exchange using practical methods or column multiplication. In discovery, we have been researching Greek Gods such as Zeus. Athena, Hades, Poseidon and Ares. We have been gathering information for the children to create an informative poster. Class 7 have also been preparing our class assembly on Thursday.
This week year 3 are starting our topic on Ancient Greeks. We are retelling the Greek myth of King Midas and the golden touch and looking in history at who the Ancient Greeks were. In maths, we are continuing our learning on multiplication moving onto to multiplying two-digit and one digit numbers together.
