Family Learning Day
We used this video to help us practise retelling the story and improve our descriptive vocabulary. Watch the video and let us show you at home!
We then went on to write out our version of the story and some of us even made changes to extend our thinking further about what might happen next.
In maths we revising our learning about perimeter and area this week. We had lots of fun practising finding these using games on interactive resources and shapes.
Later in the week, something amazing happened! We received a letter from two very famous people, Beyoncé and Jay-Z! They were planning a new swimming pool and need some designing the shape to meet perimeters and areas. Year 4 were on the case!
Try practicing on the games at home:
Year 3 have continued using The Gingerbread Man as motivation for their literacy. They are now planning their own version of the story. They have developed the setting for their story and created characters who fit into their setting. In selecting their main character they had to look at the characteristics of the Gingerbread Man. The fact that all the other characters wanted to eat him was the reason for them chasing him, so in creating their characters they needed to think "What made the main character run away from the others?". Once they had created their setting and characters they went on to story mapping their story and thinking of a title in preparation for finally writing their very own versions.
This week, in maths, we have been continuing with angles. We have made posters that will help others to recognise different angles. We have even got out the protractors. This has been confusing but we have been resilient and are beginning to measure angles accurately. Using a protractor can be a really challenging task but we have been trying really hard and have really enjoyed this learning!
Next week we will be talking about...
