This week in Year 3

We have had ever such a busy first week back after the break. This term in Year 3, our topic is ‘The Iron Man’ and the children have been thoroughly enjoying reading the story by Ted Hughes. This week, they have been drawing pictures of the giant, based on what they have read about him so far and have today been researching what breakfast cereals would be best for an iron-munching man to eat.

In Maths, we have been looking at upscaling using our multiplication tables. Some of the children used blocks to make a chair, then tried to make one exactly twice the size, while some of the children measured their heads, then had to work out how big their head would be if it was double the size!

We have also been looking at democracy and how Parliament works and have had a gymnastics coach in for P.E.
