Year 3

08.03.24 - RE!

In Green Base the children listened to the biblical story ‘ Befriending of Zacchaeus,.  We discussed the story as a class and what true friendships are.  The children  then sequenced the story and made friendship bracelets to give to their friends in the class.




01.03.24 - Art!

Following on from our work on the artist Edward TingaTinga, this week we have been trying to sketch African wildlife. We are pleased with the results!



23.02.24 - Art! 

This week in Green base we have started to look at a new artist, Edward Tinga Tinga. The children have enjoyed learning some facts about the artist and trying to draw in the style of Tinga. We have had a really focused week back and we are enjoying our creative topic!




02.02.24 - Super Science!

In science, Green Base have been looking at how plants transfer water, which links to our topic of river and water. We have also been learning about the parts of the water cycle. Did you know only 2% of the water on Earth can be used by humans? The children were fascinated when they found this fact! The children learnt the topic words: precipitation, accumulation, evaporation and condensation and they were able to say how they related to the water cycle. 



22.01.24 - Marvellous Maths!

In Green Base, maths has looked very practical this week. The children have been investigating multiplication and division using objects and then writing different equations based on each practical model. This has looked like; using counters to build arrays, cubes to show the difference between sharing and grouping for division, Base 10 to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number.  The children have really engaged with this hands-on approach and shown progress throughout the week. On Wednesday, the children used their recall skills to remember how to do column addition. It's been a long time since they learnt this skill, but the children took on the challenge and were incredible! 



15.01.24 - Focus on Literacy!

This week in Green Base we have been investigating letter writing.  As part of our exciting learning, we have been analysing letters and looking at the structure of this text type. In this activity, the children are putting a letter in order and labelling the features all while using their collaborative cog. We will be using this learning when writing and editing our own letters as part of our topic this term!
