Our first week has flown by in Willow Class and we it has been a productive week! We had an election for Class Council, learnt about our new award ‘Learner of the Week’, explored our new classroom and Junior playground and gained new responsibilities through classroom jobs.
In English we have begun learning our new suspense story and doing some short burst writing such as diary entries. We have also been learning new words from the text in order to expand our vocabulary knowledge. Next week we’ll continue to explore the text until we are ready to innovate!
In Maths we have done lots of practical work on three digit numbers and drawing them using base ten imagery – squares for hundreds, lines for tens and dots for ones. They have grasped this very well, well done Willow!
In topic we have been doing lots of art this week as part of our work on William Morris and some of this work will be put on display. As this term is about land, air and sea we have explored the outdoors and used natural resources to inspire our work.
Next week we will begin to look at how we can be an effective learner as this is especially important now the children are in Year 3.
