Welcome to Year3
Welcome to Year 3, we love reading and using the IPads especially using apps that allow us to go and visit different places. We use stories to help develop us as authors, discussing why authors choose specific words, phrases or punctuation to engage their readers so we can think about our choice of vocabulary and punctuation in our own writing.
In maths using equipment, pictures or jottings help us to visualise and understand different mathematical concepts, this can help us solve calculations or give us different ways to help ourselves if we are unsure.
Last term we read The Ice Palace and learnt about cold places such as Iceland and the Artic, comparing these to the United Kingdom. This half term join as we travel back in time and to a different continent to learn about Ancient Egypt and the river Nile.

As part of our learning at home we complete activities related to our curriculum. These two fantastic structures were completed from the activity, ‘ build a pyramid out of anything’.What a super idea and I bet it was great fun making them and eating all the spare sweets. Great effort boys (and family that helped) you should be super proud.
