This week Year 3 have been busy writing instructions for magic potions, cakes and soups with some brilliant outcomes. They applied all the features of instructional texts to their writing and even drew some beautiful diagrams alongside them. 
In Maths we have started to multiply a one digit number by a two digit number. This is done by partitioning the two digit number and multiplying it by the one digit number.

We have also started looking at the 8 times tables and the children were happy to see that they knew some of the answers already from the other tables!
In Art we have been painting our magic wands, which they are excited to take home once we finish the topic!
Our Light and Dark topic continues and this week we have been creating and designing boxes for a puppet theatre. Take a look at the ‘making of’ below…
