Topic: We are going to write a play script based on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. We will then make a shadow puppet of a character from our play script. Then we will act these out with a shadow puppet show!

Maths: We will be comparing and ordering three-digit numbers. We will then look at partitioning three-digit numbers in a variety of ways. Ending the week by identifying number bonds to multiples of 10 and 100 e.g. 64 + ___ = 90

PSHE: We will continue to promote our school rules: be respectful, be responsible, be honest, be polite and be kind.

RE: We are exploring a variety of different breads from around the world.

PE: For Indoor PE we are learning how to perform a variety of rolls. In Outdoor PE, we are applying athletic techniques in a competitive game and working well in a team.

In Spellings, we are reviewing the spelling patterns we have looked at this half term.

Maths homework: please use the sheet provided, in your homework folder, to practice your number bonds to 20.

Please remember to read at least 4 times per week to receive a marble in the jar!

Year 3 Learning This Week

To start off our play script unit, we acted out Jack and Jill. We looked carefully at the features so that it helped us to act it out properly.

We then looked at the features of a play script. After that, we came up with a word bank of adverbs to use to describe how a character is saying their lines.

We had a go at structuring a play script. We took the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and turned the speech into a play script layout. Remembering that we do not need any inverted commas!

In maths, we have been adding and subtracting multiples of ten from numbers, where the answers bridge 10, mentally. Using all the knowledge we’ve built up over the past few weeks, we were adding and subtracting hundreds, tens and ones from a number.

In RE, we learnt about what Harvest Festival is and why Christians celebrate it.

Topic: We are starting a new unit next week. We will be using our knowledge of fairy tales to explore play scripts. We will look at the features of a play script, act one out and have a go at structuring our own play script. At the end of the week, we will plan a play script based on the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.


Maths: We will be continuing to add and subtract multiples of ten to different numbers, where they bridge 100. We will also identify and place numbers on a number line to 1000.

PSHE: We are thinking about the consequences of our behaviour and how they affect other people. We are also looking at empathy and how we can see something from someone else’s point of view.

RE: We are looking at the Harvest Festival and why it is celebrated.

PE: For Indoor PE we are learning how to perform a variety of rolls. In Outdoor PE, we are applying athletic techniques in a competitive game and work well in a team.

We’ve been concentrating really hard on the quality of our writing and trying to include features from our expected writing criteria.

In maths, we’ve been adding multiples of ten to two-digit numbers, where the total bridges 100.

We’ve also been subtracting multiples of ten from three-digit numbers, where the total bridges 100.

It’s been fantastic to see that the children have been learning their number bonds to 100 and applying them to their work.

In PSHE, children have been learning to collaborate. They used these skills when creating a car out of carrots! They had to demonstrate great team work to be successful!

In RE, we looked at how inspirational people in history have shown inner strength in times of suffering. We looked Anne Frank, Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks.

Topic: We are writing a fairy tale based on Hansel and Gretel. We will be changing the ending. At the end of the week, we will edit and improve our writing.
