Spring 1: Predators

Week 6

This week we have really been able to express ourselves around our topic of Predators. We were really lucky to have Jungle Johnathon come into school on Wednesday morning, bringing in an array of predators with him. We were able to see first-hand the features that the different animals have that allow them to protect themselves and to catch their prey, as well as learning all about the lifecycles of the different predators. We were also given the opportunity to have a go at handling some of the Predators that had been brought along, to really get up close and personal analysing the different features and skin textures of these animals.

Week 5

Topic

This week within our topic lessons we have conducted an experiment to determine why trees are so tall. In groups the children were given a task to see how long they could make their straw before they couldn’t suck up any more water, as trees can only grow as tall as the water can travel. We have also looked at crocodiles and alligators and have used a map to help us find the locations of these predators as well as determine why they can only be found in certain locations.

 

Maths

In our maths lessons this week we have moved onto our new topic of money. We have taken part in lots of practical scenarios that have enabled us to really get stuck into the topic being able to identify the different notes and coins, as well as being able to add and subtract different amounts of money from a given number.

 

English

In our English lessons we have continued to write our own non-chronological reports about our chosen predator, using array of different sentence types to give our work more credibility. We have been really focussing on the use of expanded noun phrases, similes / metaphors and open ended questions with our writing to show our understanding.

Here are some photos of us in our Maths and Science lessons from the week.

Week 4

We have had another extremely busy week in year 3 this week, with our class assembly and lots of wider curriculum opportunities exploring our skeletal systems, predator plants and creating our own Red Kite collages. We have also started to write our own non-chronological reports about a predator of our choice, gathering our own research and sorting out our information into appropriate sub-headings to portray our information.

We had the opportunity to practice some of our balances on the apparatus in PE this week!

Week 3

Topic – Plants and Fossils

In our topic lessons this week we have been learning all about plants. We have dissected different flowers and highlighted the main parts, as well as looking at how plants reproduce and what creatures play a huge roll in this. We have performed an experiment to see how water is transported through the different parts by adding food colouring to our plant water which had a really great effect upon the flower, turning it the same colour as our dye. We have also explored fossils in our topic lessons this week, analysing the process of fossilisation to see how fossils are formed over a long period of time.

 

English – Non-chronological report

In our English lessons this week we have been working on non-chronological reports. As a class we have chosen a predator from our topic and performed some research. Using the research, we have gathered, we sorted it into categories to be able to use as our sub headings in our writing. The children have really enjoyed finding out different facts about some of the world’s most dangerous animals.

 

Maths – Division

In Maths we have now moved onto division, dividing 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers in our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We have looked at how we can set questions out in different ways to help us understand, as well as using the partitioning method to solve the questions in digestible chunks.

Here are some photos of us being very creative!

Week 2

Topic – Classification of animals

In our topic lessons this week we have been looking at arranging animals into different groups based upon their diet. We have sorted the animals into carnivores, herbivores and omnivores analysing what animals eat. We have then taken our learning to the next level by identifying where each animal fits into the food chain using terminology such as: Apex Predator, Prey, Consumer and Producer.

 

English – Varjak Paw

In our English lessons this week we have continued to read our class book of Varjak Paw. We have then looked at the story from the perspective of Varjak Paw himself and began to retell chapters 1 and 2 from his perspective. This has allowed us to look at the story in more depth to identify how different characters could perceive things in different ways.

 

Maths – Multiplication

In our Maths lessons this week we have continued with our topic of multiplication. We have now moved onto multiplying 2 digit numbers by a 1-digit number using the standard column method. We were then given the opportunity to test our knowledge by solving multiplication word problems, deciding what the question was asking us to do.

Week 1

Topic – Predators

This week we have begun our new topic of predators. We started the week discussing what we already know about the topic and some of the things that we would like to find out. We performed our own independent research analysing some of the key terms that we will use during the topic, allowing us to become familiar and build up our vocabulary around predators.

 

English – Varjak Paw

In our English lessons we have started our new class book of Varjak Paw. We started looking at the story just by using the front cover looking at the fine bits of detail and thinking about how some of these may link to the story. We have also begun to take on the role of the different characters in the book, looking at the situations that have occurred through different perspectives.

 

Maths – Multiplication

In our Maths lessons we have continued with our topic of multiplication from last term with our focus this week been on comparing the answers to different multiplication questions. We have also looked at representing our multiplication in different ways through using bar models and other diagrams.
