    Maths - Unit Fractions

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    A fantastic start to our fractions unit. Many thanks to all of you for sending in your photos of your completed work .We learnt that the top number of a fraction is the numerator and the bottom one is the denominator. We then had to represent several unit fractions before trying to understand what silly, old Colin had done wrong. Top work, guys, well done.

    Computing - Typing

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We have been improving our touch typing skills today. Using the correct fingers, we had to find the letters on our keyboard. There were a few timed games using letters on the bottom, middle and top rows. Lots of us scored 90% or higher for accuracy but it was very difficult not to look at the keys whilst we are typing.

    English - Four Types of Sentence.

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Our English task today was to focus on the four types of sentence - commands, questions, exclamations and statements. We played a few warm up games to recap on what makes a sentence and then had to create a recycling poster using 1 of each of the sentences. A great start to home learning. I love how many of you engaged with this task,

    Maths - Subtracting by counting on

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Subtraction was a big focus towards the end of last year and we started this term with a recap of one of the objectives from last term. Jumping on to the nearest multiples of 10 and 100 and then counting up all our jumps to find the difference. We all said we were excited about maths this term and it already shows. Lots and lots of neat, correct answers. Great job, year 3!

    Computing - Typing

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Year 3 were introduced to typing terminology and discovered the correct way to sit at the keyboard. We then played a series of timed games to learn how to what the home, top and bottom row keys are and how to use them. We then tried to beat our accuracy scores (without looking, which some of us found difficult to do!)

    This week, we have painted a picture of the Northern Lights. We are all very excited about secret learner. Amelie said it was nice, Reilly said it was brilliant, Isaac said it made him happy and Harry said it was good but he felt tired.

    Geography - The Arctic vs The United Kingdom

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    We tried to get an understanding of the geographical similarities and differences of Gloucestershire and the Arctic. We looked at the physical geography of both and discussed how their position on the planet contributes to the conditions. We loved our new word - tundra - and added it to our working wall. This ties in nicely with our explanation texts and our habitat work in science.
