During our P.E. lesson this week, we started practising our Basketball skills. Firstly, we completed a throwing and catching challenge which required us to focus on not dropping the ball! Then, we moved on to dribbling the ball by bouncing it with our hands. All of Class 3 worked really hard on all of these skills. Well done, Class 3!
Next week, we will begin to work on our shooting skills.

In our maths lessons this week, Class 3 have been learning about division and multiplication. We have used useful resources like counters and cubes to represent different groups of a number. In addition to this, we have used pictorial representations, bar models and number stories too.

This week, Class 3 made some very woolly sheep as part of our Christmas display. They used lots of different skills to make them, including collage.
Watch this space for a photo of the finished display.
Next week, Class 3 will continue with their Design and Technology work on structures. In pairs, Class 3 will be designing their own super structures!

In our history lesson this week, we became hunter-gatherers and found a variety of wild animals, nuts, seeds, berries and edible plants in the Peace Garden. During the early Stone Age, this was their only way of survival. They had to hunt for animals and gather other edible foods that were available. As a class, we then discussed how life during the Neolithic time (Late Stone Age) changed. A warmer climate and more rain meant that people could create settlements and grow crops. Pretending we were alive during the Stone Age, Class 3 wrote a letter to a friend explaining how much better life was. Class 3 worked really hard on their letters and included lots of subject specific vocabulary. Well done, Class 3!
Next week, we will be learning all about the well preserved Stone Age village, Skara Brae.

In their music lesson with Miss Dace this week, Class 3 did a brilliant job at learning some new songs and music games. Class 3 worked really hard at singing confidently and matching the pitch for each song. They even practised some actions too!

In Class 3 this week, we have been learning about instructions. In order to plan and write our own instructions, we prepared a British fruit salad and made notes on the steps. As a class, we thought very carefully about the imperative verbs that we could use, as well as making sure we carefully wrote down each step in chronological order. After making the fruit salad, we got to try it! It was delicious!
