Which Script?

This week in maths we have been looking at different number and place value problems.

In this problem there are six numbers written in five different scripts.

We had to sort out which is which!


Here is one of our solutions:

We started with one hundred because it’s the only three digit number. However, there was only 3 of them. We then found all the twos because that is the only one digit number. Then we used the two to find all the twenty fives. We used the five to find all the fifty eights and then the eights to find the eighty threes. Then we used the threes to find the thirteens and the number left over was the missing one hundred.

Performance Poetry

Last week Y3 were working really hard and looking at performance poetry in our Literacy lessons. Performance poetry is a type of poetry that is written to be performed.

Throughout the week we rehearsed our poems ready for our performance. While rehearsing we used a success criteria that we created. We had to use loud clear voices, add some actions and use lots of expression.



On Thursday we met with Aquamarine Class to put on a special poetry performance. We performed our poems and critiqued each others performances using two stars and a wish. Mr Little was very impressed with our actions, volume, props and great teamwork.


Building a Stone Age Settlement

This half term our topic is the Stone Age. Recently we have been learning about Stone Age houses and villages. We made our very own paleolithic houses and used these to make a Stone Age settlement. We decided that near a river would be a suitable place to build a village as it would provide food and water. Mr Little then gave us different scenarios such as the discovery of fire and the invention of farming and we had to change our village to fit this. We even talked about how houses changed as time progressed as people didn’t have to move around to find food.


We really enjoyed this hands on learning and have learnt lots about how settlements changed throughout the Stone Age.


On Wednesday, we were involved in an event called Go Run For Fun and it was held at Manor Fields where 857 young runners from local schools completed a tough 1 mile course. We were all given a fabulous pink t-shirt and tried our best to complete the course as fast as we could.

We were inspired at the start line by he European Athletics 100m Hurdles Champion Alicia Barrett who will be competing at the London Anniversary Games this weekend!


We were determined, resistant and motivated during our run, but most importantly we had FUN!
