In Literacy this week pupils acted out a scene taken from the play of ‘The Twits.’ Each child had a responsibility in the production. We had 12 actors, 7 props makers, managers, programme writers and musicians. We have also celebrated World Children’s Day this week. On the day children talked about the problem of air pollution and its effects on health and environment. Pupils also wrote their postcards to a local MP, Margaret Hodge. They suggested how air pollution could be reduced and asked her for help in dealing with the problem.
In Maths, pupils have worked on mental subtraction this week. They have been subtracting 1s, 10s and 100s from 2 and 3-digit numbers. They have also solved reasoning problems.
In Topic, we have continued learning about the United States. This week children looked at different American landscapes. They described those landscapes and compared them by finding similarities and differences.
On Tuesday and Wednesday this week Year 3 visited Valence Library. They got familiar with an impressive selection of the library books. They also listened to a story which a librarian read to them. Pupils were encouraged to become members of the library. They can do it by using an application form from their class teachers or filling in an online application form. We hope that our pupils take advantage of this opportunity and keep developing their passion for reading.
Have a relaxing weekend.
