Autumn Term 1
We have had an exciting start to Junior School life with our "Predator" topic! In Science, we have been learning about carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores, and then thinking about the diets of these animals. This culminated in a fascinating trip to Twycross Zoo in October, where we got to see these predators in their natural environment, and learn more about them. We then used this trip to inform our writing project for this half-term; a recount of our zoo visit. We used amazing adjectives as part of "2A sentences", which make our sentences more descriptive. In Maths, we have looked at all things place value, but we also have investigated measure - we measured our height using string, and will then do the same in the Summer term, so we can see how much we have grown in Year 3! We have also been enjoying our learning in French and Art in particular, with us learning some key skills to eventually produce a self-portrait later on in the Autumn term. We've enjoyed our first half-term at Ibstock Junior School, and we are looking forward to our learning in the next half-term, when we look at some earth-shattering goings on...
Children are required to read three times a week at home with an adult; and to spend 30 minutes on Sumdog weekly. We will be launching our half-term homework for the second Autumn half-term shortly, so keep your eyes peeled!
