This month has been a fantastic, fun filled 3 weeks of events and trips, leavers and new comers where Year 3 have really come in to their own at Rosemary Works. After their fabulous performance at the class assembly we have had a great World Book Day and a brilliant comic relief. We were even lucky enough to go to the Hackney Empire to see the spellbinding ‘Running Wild’.
This month in maths we have mastered 3D shapes and assembling nets. We explored the patterns and sequences in numbers and secured a written method for extended multiplication. Most recently Year 3 have been using strategies to help them solve problems. Everyone has worked really hard.
Science has been very interesting and we have been exploring amazing forces including magnetism. In PE we have had the weather on our side and we have been able to enjoy some rounders at Rosemary Gardens. This is really helpful for our throwing and catching skills.
Literacy has been a success this month. The children have written outstanding stories and their skills and dedication have really shone through. I saw a high level of writing and I am really proud of the effort they made. Towards the final weeks of term we embarked on a mini persuasive writing project which was woven in with teamwork and design and technology. We learnt about the importance of recycling and decided to work together to create an eco toy which we could persuade people to buy. We worked in teams designing, manufacturing and producing and even turned our heads to film our very own persuasive adverts.
This was a great opportunity for Year 3 to explore skills they will need later in life. We are looking forward to next term’s adventures. Fantastic work guys! Have an eggscellent Easter break!
