Our amazing homework!

Well done to all of the children that brought in fantastic homework this week!

Here are some examples of homework by children who have created a wanted poster for a Spartan warrior, looked at the foods that Greek people may have eaten and written about a Greek god.

City in the community

This half term, we have been lucky enough to take part in PE sessions with Liam, a coach who has come from Manchester City!

The children have loved taking part in team games and developing their skills in moving forwards, backwards and sideways.

We love to read!

We love reading in team 5!

To support our reading, we have a super reading area.

We have a display which shows what we are thinking about our class novel, ‘Beasts of Olympus’ and some pictures of us reading in unusual places!

We have an author of the month display showing which author we are looking at in class for our class read.

We like to know what types of books we can read, so we have separate baskets for fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Finally, we have lots of amazing writing hanging from our ceiling! We wrote character descriptions about our favourite book characters and tried to persuade someone to save our character from a falling hot air balloon.

We hope you enjoyed looking around our reading area!

Ancient Greek Workshop

This week, we were were visited by the 2500 year old Polynikes! Poly had come to visit us from Athens in Ancient Greek times.

Poly told us all about where Greece is on the map and explained a gory story about how the Ancient Greeks thought the world began! Some children were then asked to help Poly to act out Theseus and the Minotaur.

Later in the day, a scary Greek soldier joined us! He was wearing a bronze helmet and was carrying a huge spear!

What was your favourite part of the day?

Welcome back!

What a busy start to the school year we have had!

In English we have been reading a text called ‘Beasts of Olympus’ which is all about a boy who has to go and help the gods on Mount Olympus.

In maths we have been looking at lots of different ways to represent numbers. We have used base 10, blank number lines, place value counters and more!

For our homework this half term, you will need to complete one task each week. For each task you complete you will earn points. You MUST complete one English and Maths homework each half term.

I hope you are enjoying year 3 so far!
