Rainforests and Promises

Second week down!

It’s been an exciting week here in year 3 and thank you to all the parents for attending parents evening.

This week we have had a big focus on the value on a number and how changing a digit by 1, 10 or 100 can affect the number. The children really engaged in all the activities and have enjoyed themselves this week.

In English, we have been looking at instructional texts and comparing the two main characters in our class read ‘Gregory Cool’. The children have enjoyed this and should find themselves working independently on homework this week.

In Topic, our exploration of the rainforest found us sketching animals and plants that inhabit the rainforests, with the class producing some fantastic art. On Thursday we created our own class fact file, filled with brilliant and bizarre facts about the rainforest and the creatures that inhabit it.

In RE, we our focusing on Judaism this term. This week we have looked at the importance on a promise, why it’s hard to keep them. We have also been looking at the story of Abraham and how his life was affected by his love for God.
