Welcome to Montgolfier class. This year we had to choose a significant European person from History. The children researched different people and voted in favour of Montgolfier. The Montgolfier brothers were the first people to invent the hot air balloon.
Teachers in class: Miss Playford
Welcome back! I hope everyone has had a lovely half term.
This half term our topic is South America and we will be using maps to identify the continents, oceans and countries in South America. We will also research the natural and physical features of South America. Our English is linked to topic so the children will write a spine poem about the Amazon. We will then learn a journey tale also set in the Amazon.
We are focusing on the children using description in their writing and will be teaching the children different descriptive techniques to help them.
In Maths we are continuing to solve addition and subtraction problems and will then move onto multiplication and division problems.
You can help your child by playing games to help them remember the multiplication facts for the 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
We have been learning how to add and subtraction using two 3 digit numbers. We practise using base 10 and place value counters first before using the expanded column method as written form.
Year 3 Non-Negotiable’s to set us up for a fabulous year!
This Autumn term, Montgolfier class will be working very hard to ensure we know how to spell the first 300 High Frequency words (HFW) which we started to learn in Reception so that we are ready to move onto our Year 3 spellings, rules and patterns for the rest of the year.
In addition to this, we will regularly working on our handwriting to ensure that all our fantastic work can be read clearly.
Furthermore, we are consolidating our basic number skills including number bonds, doubling and halving and our times tables 2, 5, 10, 3, 4, 8, 50, 100!
