First half of Summer Overview

Tales of Wisdom and wonder

In English at the moment year 3 are looking at folk tales in the book ‘Tales of Wisdom and Wonder’. This week we have been looking at the story of the Pedlar of Swaffham. 3CM have created a timeline of events on the story map display and today have been acting out how it might feel to be the pedlar arriving at Medieval London Bridge.

We started out by getting in to role in small groups, we then performed our scene, slowly adding more groups to the scene until we were doing a whole class interaction. It felt really busy and noisy, we were acting out how it might have felt to walk through the crowds, it felt very real.

Check out the action below.

Enrichment day fun

3CM have had a great time during enrichment day – we did a range of activities from building a burger for lunch to learning to play the Indian drum.

Our drumming session started off with us learning a bit about India before we sang a song in Punjabi, followed by beat boxing and then the beat that we played on the drum. We had a great day, although it was a bit loud – check out the pictures below of us in action!

Maths at home
Children learning Maths through real life situations is an excellent way to secure skills and it is always great for children to practise these key skills at home.  Below, are some websites that have great Maths games and activities suitable for your child.  They explore a range of areas but children should focus on times tables (and related divisions), number bonds (pairs of numbers that add up to a total, usually a multiple of 10) and the four operations. (You will need to navigate through this website as some activities are quite tricky!)

Times tables support:

Every day activities are also brilliant for children to develop their Maths confidence and awareness.  For example,
- paying for something themselves at a shop
- trying to add up some items on a shopping list
- working out what time a favourite TV programme will end
- Sharing food into fractions (cutting up a pizza perhaps!)
- Creating data charts and tallies of buses and vehicles they might see
