What We’ve Been Learning – Year 3 – Autumn Week 6

  • We have planned and written adverts persuading pirates to join our school.
  • We had a fabulous Pirate Day and a real pirate came to visit!  He showed us many artefacts such as a real canon, swords and pistols.  We got to walk the plank, have a tug of war, swing in a hammock and made a clay medallion.
  • We looked at the suffix –ing and have added it to words.
  • We have learnt the compact column method in addition in order to solve number problems. E.g 124 + 122 =
  •        124
  •        122 +
  •        246
  • We practised our TT Rockstars each day looking at the 2 times table.
  • We practised the joins -age, -aid and –ail
  • We had a Spelling Quiz on the old spellings – appear, heard, naughty, enough, promise, through
  • We looked at the new spellings – knew, know, knee, knife, knock, gnaw, gnat, gnome

At home:

Practise the new spellings.

Remember to try to read at least 4 times at home each week.
