This half term has been a busy one in Year 3!
In English we have been reading The Twits by Roald Dahl and have immersed ourselves in the world of theatre by writing our own play scripts to re-tell the story. We have also delved into fantasy, unearthing old Viking and Anglo-Saxon myths before writing our own. We even created our own mythical beasts!
In Maths we have become competent in using both column addition and subtraction to solve numerical and written problems. We can now use regrouping as a technique to work out more difficult problems and can demonstrate this to each other. Each Friday we have investigated the world of finance and have learnt about ways to spend money and also ways to save. This includes bank accounts, budgeting and buying at a cheaper price.
In PBL we have explored the history around many of Britain’s invaders, with a focus on the Vikings and the Anglo-Saxons. We conducted in-depth research into their eating habits, housing, fashion, jobs and travel and created our own Horrible Histories extracts about these infamous invaders!
