Year 3 Learning Highlights

Summer Term 1 Week 6 20th May - 24th May

 

Welcome to our final week of Summer 1! 

 

What a busy week we have had in Year 3!  Olive Class had a super time visiting Z Arts in Manchester, taking part in lots of amazing, creative activities with their Link class, 3W from Ashbury Meadows Primary School; we concluded lots of learning in English - writing our secret diary entries and we were treated to an incredible Oscars Ceremony on Thursday.  Congratulations to all the winners of those coveted 9 Oscars awards!  Each and every child in Year 3 is a stars though and you should be proud of the hard work, perseverance and resilience the children have shown throughout this half term - and especially this week with the challenging rainy conditions! 

 

Highlight of a Core Subject

In maths, we have concluded our learning about money by focusing on adding and subtracting money and giving change.  The holidays may well present plenty of opportunities for our children to practise this skills in real life!

 

Highlight of a Foundation Subject

Our history lessons have continued apace this week, with events taking a turn for our Pharaoh...Do have a chat with your child about what they have learnt about the mummification process...Will our Pharaoh journey successfully to the afterlife?

 

Home Learning

There is no homework set over the holiday - enjoy making memories together instead and have a rest after all your hard work over the last 6 weeks.

 

When we return to school on Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th June, we will be taking part in an exciting Design and Technology project looking at shell structures.  Please could each child bring in ONE example of packaging (maybe their favourite cereal, drink or a treasure box) that they like to help with this project - children will describe something about the packaging they find attractive.  For example, maybe it's the shape, material or design they like etc.  Thank you.

 

Key Information:

 

P.E. Days: Tuesday and Wednesday - it is important that children remember to bring in their outdoor P.E. kit on both those days.

 

Wednesday 12th June: Sage Class will be visiting Ashbury Meadow Primary School in Manchester and we are asking for 2 volunteers to support us on this trip - in order to avoid cancelling this opportunity. 

We will be departing from school at approx. 9.15 and will return in time for the end of the school day.  If you are able to volunteer your time, please let Mrs Reid or Mrs Townes-Yates know or email the office on admin@ludworth.stockport.sch.uk.  Packed lunches will be required by all children for the trip, unless your child is entitled to a free school meal, in which case, the office will contact you directly.

 

Summer Term 1 Week 5 13th May - 17th May

 

Welcome to week 5 of our Summer Term! 

 

Highlight of a Core Subject

In maths, we have completed our  learning about mass and capacity!  We are now feeling much more confident in our ability to measure the capacity and volume of different things.  Being able to count up in 25s, 50s and 100s up to 1,000 with confidence has helped us tackle our fluency and problem solving and reasoning questions this week. We have now moved onto our new topic-money! our knowledge of addition and subtraction will help us a lot throughout this unit. So far we have been looking at adding pounds and pence and we can't wait to learn more!

 

Highlight of a Foundation Subject

Within our history lessons this week we have been learning all about Egyptian towns and markets and had the opportunity of creating our very own Shadufs! The children have also enjoyed comparing the Egyptian markets to the Shang Dynasty markets to identify similarities and differences between the two.

 

Home Learning

MyMaths - 1 extended task has been set, this is a pre-learning task  as it links to both measure and money therefore children may not have been taught all aspects of the unit as of yet.

 

Please continue with the daily spelling and times tables practice - each Friday we continue to test children on these in class and their results are sent home. 

 

Reading: Please read at least 3 times a week with your child, asking them questions about the text using the bookmark and remember to sign your child's reading record every time they read with you.  

Reading plus is also available if children would like to use that to practice their reading and comprehension skills too. The children have been accessing the programme in school and should know their username and password. Please let us know if you require their username/password.  

 

Key Information:

The Ludworth book awards is also fast approaching! the deadline for all entries is Friday 24th May! This is a really exciting competition where you could win your height in books! Children are to design a piece of artwork that represents a book from the from the shortlist. For more information, please see the post below. Good Luck!

 

Friday 24th May: Year Three Ludworth's Got Talent auditions (please send any links to music via the office ensuring the music is child friendly).  2 acts will be put forward to the final from each year group, decided by a democratic vote.

Summer Term 1 Week 4 7th May - 10th May

 

Welcome to week 4 of our Summer Term! 

 

Highlight of a Core Subject

In maths, we have continued to enjoy learning about mass and capacity - understanding how capacity and volume are different things.  We have used our knowledge of 1000g = 1 KG and 1000ml = 1litre to work out the weight or mass of an object and also the volume and capacity of different jugs of water.  Measuring in this manner has consolidated our learning about number lines to help us work out the scale, using vocab such as difference and intervals.  Being able to count up in 25s, 50s and 100s up to 1,000 with confidence has helped us tackle our fluency and problem solving and reasoning questions this week.

 

Highlight of a Foundation Subject

Within our music lessons, this week, we have continued to be taught by an external tutor, from Stockport Music Service to play the Ukulele!  This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn a musical instrument and these sessions are very much enjoyed by the children.

 

Home Learning

MyMaths - 1 extended task has been set, consolidating children's knowledge of multiplication and division.  Children may need some support to understand the short section on short division.

 

Please continue with the daily spelling and times tables practice - each Friday we continue to test children on these in class and their results are sent home.

Summer Term 1 Week 3 29th April - 3rd May

 

What a cracking week of learning we've had in Year 3! 

First and foremost, the sun has shone! Just in time for Ashbury Meadow Primary School's visit on Wednesday!

We had an AMAZING day - but don't just take our word for it - see some of the quotes from the children below.  It was fabulous to finally meet the children of class 3B and 3W - after sharing bunting, identity maps and our initial Zoom call in December.  We engaged in some ice breaker activities in the hall, which gave us chance to find out some more information about one another.  We also realised we had lots in common!  The classes then mixed up, with Sage Class and 3B enjoying some Forest School games out on the field and a Team Tower Building activity in the classroom and Olive Class went onto the MUGA for lots of sporty games and then enjoyed a Team Tower Building activity in the classroom.  We had lots of fun getting to know one another and can't wait to see them again at Ashbury Meadow and Z Arts in Manchester!   

 

'I loved making a new friend called Fatima.'

'I like it when we played Forest Fire but my favourite was definitely Guess the Animal!'

'I made lots of friends.'

 'I loved playing Bat and Moths and I think I made friends with Musa and I also liked lunch!'

'I enjoyed making new friends and I really loved building a tower with them.'

 

In English

We've been completing our Egyptian Mystery Narratives using 'show not tell' techniques to convey how our characters are feeling - focusing on what their bodies are doing! For example, sweat trickled down my spine and my heart was pounding in my chest...

 

In Our Discovery History:

The time machine broke and in order to get it fixed, the children had to re-programme it to get to their destination safely!  They consolidated their knowledge of BC and AD and put some key historical events in order to get the time machine back up and running again.  Hopefully, now they can continue on their journey back in time to Ancient Egypt...

 

Home Learning

MyMaths - 1 extended task has been set, consolidating children's knowledge of addition and subtraction.

 

Please continue with the daily spelling and times tables practice - each Friday we continue to test children on these in class and their results are sent home.

Summer Term 1 Week 2

 

For some of us, it's been a bit of a sad week as we've all been missing Miss Clarke however, Mrs Towner-Yates has had a LOVELY week with Olive class enjoying all their hard work and best of all Team Y3 have held onto the Golden Brush for a third week!! Two weeks for Sage class followed by one for Olive makes us the year group with the longest winning streak. Well done to both classes for doing such a good job looking after all our belongings! We also met the new Year 3 teacher Miss Taylor.

 

In English

We've been planning and writing our Egyptian Mystery Narratives using vocabulary such as: unearthly, ornate, glimpse, catacombs and one of us decided to introduce the word "unorthodoxly"! I think you can agree that the vocabulary in Year 3 is not only unorthodox but very impressive!

 

In Maths:

We have been learning about grams and kilograms and measurements of weight/mass. Did you know there are 1000g in one kg? You could practise weighing items at home on scales to help remember how to read g and kg. 

 

In Our Discovery History:

We have discovered a secret message in the classroom. After some research into ancient writing techniques, we found out that it was written in hieroglyphics and deciphered it and it said: "BEWARE OF TIME TRAVEL THE PAST IS IN GREAT DANGER..." so who knows what will happen next! 

 

In PE:

We started with our sports coaches. On Monday, Mark came and taught us some tennis skills and we practised rallying and forehand. On Thursday Ben came to teach us cricket skills and we played a competitive game. Our PE days are Monday and Thursday for the rest of the half-term.

 

We can't wait to tell you all about our learning next week. Will we disappear in Miss Sanders and Miss Clarke's well constructed time machine? Will there be any other strange messages appearing in the classroom? Will we become world class tennis champions? We'll find out next week!

 

Home Learning

MyMaths - 2 tasks have been set on units of measurement.

 

Please continue with the daily spelling and times tables practice - each Friday we continue to test children on these in class.

 

Reading: Please read at least 3 times a week with your child, asking them questions about the text and remember to sign your child's reading record every time they read with you.  Reading plus is also available if children would like to use that to practice their reading and comprehension skills too. The children have been accessing the programme in school and should know their username and password. Please let us know if you require their username/password.

Summer 1 Week 1
Week Commencing Monday 15th April - Friday 19th April

 

We've had a super start to our Summer term and by far the highlight of our week was our trip to Bolton Museum on Thursday! What better way to immerse ourselves in our new history learning - What Makes a good leader? by listening to all things Ancient Egypt, at the workshop in Bolton and examining the artefacts, learning about the mummification process, and looking at the ‘unknown mummy’! Bolton museum has so much to offer and we had time to explore some of Bolton’s history, see some interesting animal exhibits, visit their art gallery and their popular aquarium! Have a chat with your child about their favourite part and take a look at some photos from the trip, below.  A big thank you to our parent volunteers for making this trip happen!

We've had a very busy week in Sage and Olive class this week where we have done many activities celebrating world book week.  We started our week with a special assembly where Mr Senogles shared his favourite book. We then introduced the poet Matt Goodfellow, who has written lots of poems (some of which were very funny) and we discussed which poems we liked and how we might perform them. We then got into groups to practise performing our poems. We've done many other activities this week surrounding books, such as our hot chocolate and book sharing, a trip to the library, a reading event and we also rounded off the week with a book quiz which both classes really enjoyed.

Week Commencing Monday 5th February - Friday 9th February 

What a jam-packed final week in school we've had!

 

We kick-started the week with our mindfulness workshop - check out Ludworth Life for more details about the strategies the children learnt.  On Tuesday, we joined a live virtual Safer Internet Day assembly, where we learnt more about artificial intelligence technology and careers in tech for AI.  The theme for Safer Internet Day was 'Inspiring Change' so as part of that we learnt about the achievements of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who created, amongst many other things, the World Wide Web.  The children worked in teams to create posters celebrating Sir Tim's achievements - some of which will form part of a computing display in school.

 

Highlight of a Core Subject

We've completed our exploration of the text 'Rhythm of the Rain' and the children have written some amazing information leaflets on The Great Barrier Reef! In Maths, we have finished our learning on length and perimeter and the children are starting to get to grips with their 8 times table!

Spring 1 Week 3

Week Commencing Monday22nd January - Friday 26th January 

Our learning highlight for this week was to write our setting narratives inspired by the text, 'Rhythm of the Rain'.  They children were very skilled at creating expanded noun phrases, using adverbs, conjunctions and similes to bring their stories to life!  The children will be editing their writing on Monday before moving on to the next genre - information leaflets, based on the same text. 
 

Highlight of a Foundation Subject.

The learning highlight in geography this week has to be continuing to help 'Green Earth' in their mission to set up a new 'UK-wide charity fundraising event' that has necessitated the year 3s learning all about contour lines on maps to understand the stories they tell us about mountain ranges, using the atlases to locate key rivers so that we can plot green transport methods between each fundraising challenge and researching about UK mountains and using our drama skills to be able to deliver a information report about them!

Key Information

Currently in Sage Class, we have a student teacher called Miss Stephenson, the children have enjoyed getting to know her this last week

'Hello, I am a second year student at Manchester Metropolitan University, studying primary education and currently on placement at Ludworth until the end of March. I originally wanted to do social work as a degree and then I started working at a children's play centre, which I absolutely loved and it made me think about a career with children! My boss used to be a primary school teacher and she suggested I should go into it and after speaking with her about how much she loved her time as a primary school teacher, I changed my university application to primary education and have not looked back since!'

 

 

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Spring 1 Week 1

Week Commencing Monday 8th January - Friday 12th January 

Our learning highlight for this week was starting our new English text, ‘Rhythm of the Rain’.  The children loved exploring the magic story box- where children take it in turn to take out objects which provide clues as to the text.  Our story box revealed a parrot teddy, wooden elephant, flowers, scented potpourri, a jar of water and fishing rod.   The story box also contain key words, like streams and plunge and questions for the children to ponder.  The children then made a prediction as to what they thought the story would be about.
 

Highlight of a Foundation Subject.

’What stories can a map tell us?’ is the question Year 3 are considering this half term in our Discovery learning.  Through DEAL (Dramatic engagement and active learning), the children had to learn about the regions of England and locate 15 landmarks across the four countries that make up the UK, in order to help a Global Charity set up a new Charity Event in the UK!

 

On Wednesday, we started our outdoor P.E. lessons in basketball.  The children had great fun dribbling around cones, completing relay races and learning to control a ball.

Week 7: Week commencing Monday 11th December - Friday 15th December

Our learning highlight for this week was definitely connecting with Class 3B and 3W from Ashbury Meadow Primary School via a video call - as part of our special School's Linking Project.  Everyone introduced themselves and revealed something about them - like a favourite hobby; we then played a game called 'Would you Rather...' and took part in a hilarious drawing challenge!  Following this, we asked some 'curiosity questions' of class 3B and 3W - such as What is your favourite subject at school? and What is your favourite food?

We realised that we shared lots of similarities with children from Ashbury Meadow and some differences too - which make us all unique!

 

"I loved getting to know children from Class 3B."

"I really enjoyed playing the 'Would you rather...' game!"

"That was lots of fun!"

 

This week, we also conducted a science experiment to help us determine whether 'soil is just dirt'.  We planned and wrote a fable narrative in English about Fox and Magpie and completed our multiplication and division unit in maths!

We’ve had an action-packed week in Year 3, what with our sponsored Pudsey-run, forest school session and handball lesson on Wednesday but our learning highlight was probably our computing lesson! Children learnt more about animations, including that they’re comprised of frames; they used iMotion on the iPads to create their own simple animation with a partner using the ‘onion skinning’ function to assist them! See below for some examples of our work! We also began to plan our information report on foxes in English and continued our discovery lessons on rocks, fossils and soil.  In Maths this week we have completed our learning on column addition and subtraction and have moved on to our new unit on multiplication and division.

In Y3 this week:

 

In maths this week, we have continued to use the number line to add and subtract 1s and 10s from a 3 digit number, where it has involved crossing 10 or 100.  This can be a challenging concept for the children to grasp, so we have been practising our knowledge of finding the nearest multiple of 10 and 100 and making links to our number bonds of 10 and 20, to help work this style of question out!  The children have show great resilience, problem -solving and determination during our maths lessons, so well done year 3!  

 

In P.E. this week, we have been learning to jump dynamically, thinking about the muscles we are using and developing when we practise jumping.  Children took part in a circuit of 5 different jumping stations and performed them for 3 minutes before rotating to the next one.  

They complete river jumps, heiman jumps, compass jumps, lunges and lateral jumps!

Week 3

We have been continuing to code with Mr Choudry using Scratch Junior. We have been debugging programmes and learning how to code for a purpose and to achieve an outcome. We enjoyed making characters speak and move. 

Sage Class had the opportunity to explore Ludworth’s new play-pod today and what fun they had! They were incredibly creative in using the equipment and made all manner of creations from bridges and chocolate factories to cafes and hoverboards! This was also a fabulous opportunity for children to practise their team working and communication skills!  Equipment in the pod will be available for children to use at break times and lunchtimes so today provided a chance for us to practise taking out and putting the equipment away safely and sensibly, and learning when we might need a helping hand to carry the heavier pieces of equipment.

Week 2

Narrative Immersion: In Year 3, we have started to explore our class text, The Iron Man, predicting what we think the story may be about and understanding how he might sound and look like, using noun phrases and adverbs.
