We have been adding multiples of 10 to 3 digit numbers this week. The children have worked with manipulatives to calculate the answers to calculations. We have discussed “exchanging” 10 lots of 10 for 100. This is expressed perfectly in this pictorial representation of the calculation 590+20. Keep calculating Y3!
Thanks to these girls for bringing in a variety of things related to our glorious city of Steel. Jessica brought in a leaflet on the process of making steel, from her grandad who worked in the industry; Matilda for bringing in a ‘made in Sheffield’ steel letter opener and to Sophie for bringing in a beautiful steel and metal made gift from her dad.
Look at all these monkeys climbing up our tree! Every time your child gets 5 signatures on their reading log, they can move their monkey. That’s just 15 minutes of reading per signature, and remember that it doesn’t have to be your school book; it could be reading a magazine, newspaper, comic or favourite book or simply sharing reading time with an adult!
Have a great reading weekend!
In their RE lessons, the children have learnt about Baptism. They have talked about the important promises made, and have shared photographs of their own Baptisms. Can you identify which babies are in the photos? There is room on our board for more photos if you would like to send in your special photos to share with the class.
Tomorrow is the due date for this week’s homework…remember to hand yours in! (And remember to put your name on it so we know to tick you off our list!)
