Autumn Term 1
Well, we’ve has a very busy and exciting half term in the Lions class!
The Lions have settled in well to life at junior school and we have been enjoying getting to know each other over the last 7 weeks! We kicked of year 3 with the topic of predators, which allowed us to explore the life of the animals that sit at the top of the food chain! We have learnt about what they eat, where they live and their physical characteristics.
In English, the Lions have written a recount of their day at the zoo using lots of time connectives and 2A sentences to describe what we saw. The lions have also began to edit their own writing using their pink pens!
In maths, we started the year learning about measurement and practised how to measure accurately. We have measured ourselves with string and put them in a jar so that at the end of the year, we can see how much we have grown! We are also very busy exploring our times tables and learning new songs to help us remember them!
In art, we have been practising our sketching skills and drawn our own self-portraits. We have also looked at Picasso’s portraits and how we can copy and adapt them to make it our own.
We are looking forward to this half term’s topic and the lead up to Christmas! We are practically trembling with excitement!
Homework due on 6th December
