YEAR 3 SLEEPOVER!
Maths and Literacy
This week in maths, Year 3 have been looking out multiplication patterns and common multiples. We have been using a 100 square to recognise patterns and see how some times tables relate to others.
This week in literacy we have been editing and refining our own versions of Burger Boy. We tried to use a range of interesting vocabulary to make our stories more exciting and looked for better alternatives for said when using speech.
In literacy we have been real risk takers by expanding our language. We began by building up a bank of adjectives and practising using them to describe creepy nouns in a haunted house. We then applied this to story writing and wrote a 'spooktacular' opening paragraph, describing the setting. Next we moved onto using fronted adverbial phrases to give extra detail about our characters and the problems they were about to encounter. We can't wait to finish them and share them with you.
In maths Year 4 have continued making progress with their multiplication skills. They have now progressed to 1 digit x 3 digit and 2 digit x 2 digit using the grid method.
