Ancient Greek columns in Ruby Class.

Today in Ruby Class the children investigated how to make columns for their Ancient Greek buildings.  They had to design their columns so they were strong enough to stand up and could be attached to a piece of card representing a roof.  Some of the children also drew designs on their columns to make them look even more realistic.

Greek Day – Friday 8th December

The topic we have been learning about this term is Ancient Greece. To conclude our learning, we are going to have an Ancient Greek day, where children will spend the day as Ancient Greeks! In order for the children to be fully engaged, the children are to come to school dressed as people from this civilisation.

Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 17.20.15.png  They will be engrossed in the learning by partaking in a range of activities to show and develop their learning of the topic, including having an Ancient Greek feast. We would ask each child to bring in one piece of Ancient Greek food that may be shared during the feast. Examples ofAncient Greek food that could be brought in are: breads, olives, beans, grapes, figs, cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables.

Homework – Autumn 2 Week 3

For homework this week, we would like you to do the following:

  1. Make sure you continue to read every day (and at the weekend). Record a comment in your reading diary each time.
  2. Practise your spellings from this week (please fill in the appropriate section in your reading diary).
  3. Practise the times table you are working on for a test next week!

We have been looking at telling the time, so you could also practice telling the time in and around your home (this does not have to be recorded, just say it out loud!)

You can use your homework books for your spelling and times table practice but you do not need to bring them back into school.

Spelling words:

enough, cousin, courage, young, touch, trouble, country, tough, rough, double

Spelling clarification

Just to clarify.

This week’s spellings are:

myth, gym, Egypt, pyramid, mystery, symbol, system, hymn, lyric, typical

If you have started to learn the 1st spellings that were on the blog ‘ou’ words do not worry these are the spellings for the week after.

Due to the confusion we will have the spelling  test on Friday.

Sorry for any problems this has caused.

Using the Column Method in Maths

In year 3 the children are using the Column Method for their additions and subtractions. In order to help parents who want to work with their children at home on their additions and subtractions, a couple of example sheets were sent home today.  These sheets show each step of using the column method, including simple additions and subtractions, and harder ones where the children will need to exchange.

So you can now practice at home adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers.
