Everyone to thrive

Class 3

Spelling w/b 10/10/22

Science 04/10

Friday Summary – 30/09/22 


This week in Maths we have compared and ordered numbers to 1000 (Y3) / 10,000 (Y4). We reminded ourselves of key vocabulary when doing so such as, greater than, less than, more than and equal to. We also learnt about rounding to the nearest 10 (Y3) / 100 or 1000 (Y4). We know that if the digit is 4 or less, we round down and if its 5 or more we round up. 


This week in English we have continued our focus on the story ‘Nail Soup;’ We have begun the invention stage! Using our individual story maps, we have started drafting our own stories still following the framework of the story. We have used the story mountain to break our story down into 5 parts – opening, build up, problem, resolution and ending. This process has helped us understand the key parts of the story and write in detail. 

Other curricular areas 

In topic we have learnt about the four layers of the rainforest – forest floor, understorey, canopy and emergent. We considered the climate and what animals live in each layer. We used this knowledge to create the rainforest layers in our jam jars! In music we have been using instruments to follow a beat. 


Have a lovely weekend!

Friday Summary – 23/09/22 

Happy Friday everyone! We have had a fun week in Class 3, especially on our wonderful wellbeing day on Tuesday!  


This week in Maths we have continued our focus on place value by considering 1, 10 or 100 (Y3)/ 1000 (Y4) more or less than a given number. We also practiced word problems ensuring we select the key pieces of information to help us answer the question. 


This week in English we have continued our focus on the story ‘Nail Soup;’ we are now at the innovation stage! We know the story well and were able make changes, we had several excellent creative ideas. We substituted, added, and altered details of the story to make it our own and it was interesting hearing everyone's different stories. It was no longer nail soup but Lego soup! 

Other curricular areas 

We have linked our rainforest topic to forest schools and have enjoyed creating tribal jewellery using leaves and beads. On our wonderful wellbeing day, we got to experience a range of activities including soup making, collaborative colouring, yoga, and STEM construction. We all got to try the soup and it was delicious!  


  • Homework will be sent home on a Wednesday and should be returned on the following Monday. 

  • Please encourage your child to fill in their reading record so we can see all the super reading they have done at home. 

  • Class 3 are orienteering at Sherborne on Wednesday (28/09/22). 

Have a lovely weekend!

Friday Summary – 16/09/22 

Happy Friday everyone! We have had a very busy first full week in Class 3 from Forest Schools to Maths and PE! In our weekly Friday summary, we would like to share some of our learning with you! 


This week in Maths we have built on our knowledge of place value. We have discussed what place value means and represented numbers to 100 (Y3)/1000 (Y4). To develop this further, we have considered the part-whole model for partitioning numbers and consolidated using a number line. 


This week in English we have begun our Talk for Writing model inspired by Pie Corbett. We listened to the story ‘Nail Soup,’ we then created actions to help us remember the story and worked in pairs to draft our own story maps. I wonder how many of you can remember the story? 

Other curricular areas 

Our topic this term is the Rainforest; we are excited to learn all about it! We used atlases to locate rainforests around the world, this was quite difficult but we looked at the shape of each country and its location to the equator to help us! We have also discussed the sad passing of our Queen; we considered all her achievements and created a book of condolences for her. 

Have a lovely weekend!
