Year 3

Week beginning: 11.11.19




In Maths this week,

This week we will continue to work on addition and subtraction. We will start using concrete models and pictorial representations and move on to mental methods. We will look at different strategies for adding such as counting on or back, rounding and adjusting, partitioning and using known facts.

We will continue to work on learning our times tables.

We will also look at bar charts to show data and how to interpret the information in bar charts.

In English this week,


We are continuing out Talk for Writing unit based on adventure stories. In this week we will begin our own innovation on the adventure story we've studied. We will try to use some of the elements that we discussed last week to make our adventure stories great. 


In IPC this week

We are continuing our unit Saving the world. Within this unit (which runs for the next two months) we will be looking at the world's rainforests, finding out where they are and why they are important. We will learn about animals, plants and rocks of the rainforest. We will also investigate how and why rainforests are being destroyed and how people are trying to conserve them.
