Welcome to Tiger Class

Welcome to a new school year and Tiger Class.

I look forward to working with you all this year. Take a look at the Tiger Class Newsletter to find out the most important information to remember about year 3.

I will be setting spellings to learn each week. You will have a sheet and I will post them on here too. Here are this week’s spellings: Spellings Fri 10.9.21

4.1.21

Welcome back! Happy New year! As you may have noticed, the year has changed and we are now in 2021. At the start of a new year, lots of people choose to make New Year Resolutions. This is a change we are promising to make. Look at the New Year Resolution document and write your own resolution. New Year’s Resolutions

We have learnt about 3D shapes before so I would like you to sort the 3D shapes so that all the ones that are the same are together, hopefully you can name them too! Take a look at this video to remind you about some of the different 3D shapes: The 3D shape song – KS1 Maths – BBC Bitesize T-N-1105A-3D-Shape-Sorting-Activity-A4-Version

We are going to be looking at the weather and observing how it changes this half term. As part of this, we are going to try and record the temperature. See if you can follow the instructions to make a thermometer box or, if you don’t have the materials, design your own. Thermometer box

Hope you are all safe and well, Miss Coles

Welcome back Tigers! Happy New Year!

We are at the very beginning of a whole new year… 2021! At the start of a New Year, lots of people choose to make New Year Resolutions. This is a personal goal or development that we are promising to make for the New Year. Look at the New Year Resolutions PowerPoint and have a go at writing your own resolution. New Year Resolutions

Carefully read the Food Chain text. After you have read the text, have a go at answering the questions. You will find all of the answers in the text! Just like we do in class, carefully read each question and underline the important words. After you have done this, look back through the text to find the key words. Once you have found the key words reread the paragraph to find the answer. Remember to answer your questions in full sentences! Food chain reading

Last term we looked at using the column method to solve addition and subtraction questions in maths. Today we are looking at how to use the ‘inverse’ to check that our calculations are correct. Inverse operations are opposite operations that reverse the calculation. So the inverse (or the opposite) of addition is subtraction which means that the inverse of subtraction is addition.  Have a look at the maths challenges. Use the column method to solve the questions and then use the inverse (opposite) to check your answer is correct. Maths challenges – inverse addition and subtraction

Looking forward to next term

I’m very excited about the learning we are going to be doing next term. We will be continuing with our concept of change. We are going to be looking more at how the weather changes and we are also going to be making an exciting change to the school!

Look what we’ve been learning this term!

Our concept is Change and we have been learning about lots of different changes. We have been thinking about if they impact us.

One of the first changes we identified was the change in the weather and the seasons from Summer to Autumn. We created our own pictures showing how the leaves change as we get to autumn.

We learnt about some changes that are very important as they impact us greatly, such as changes in nursing. We decided this was particularly important at the moment! We had some very special ‘visitors’ from the past – Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale who told us about nursing in their time and we were very lucky to have a video from a present day nurse who told us all about nursing today.

At the beginning of November, we learnt about some important historical events that we remember every year. This included Bonfire night and Remembrance day.

We also learnt a bit about some changes in Great Yarmouth and learnt about human and physical features.

Autumn term

Hello Tigers,

What a busy and wonderful first term we have had together! I have been super impressed with all of your hard work and excitement to learning towards our concept of ‘Development’.

This term we have studied the Victorian time period and have had the opportunity to zoom call a Victorian lady. This inspired us to write letters to Miss Clare to find out more about life as a Victorian to which we had a very exciting reply! We have also looked at the developments in Great Yarmouth’s history such as the seafront, fishing industry and the Circus. We have also looked at the structure and design of different bridges across the world and have investigated the cause of the Suspension Bridge Disaster in Great Yarmouth.

Next term we will continue with our concept of development looking at the Stone Age.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas break and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year!

Miss Hendley

Merry Christmas!

We have had lots of fun learning lots of new things this term.

We were very lucky to have a very special visitor today, Father Christmas himself!

It’s very important to keep practicing reading and writing as much as possible over the Christmas holidays, perhaps you could write a list of any presents you receive.

I hope you all have a lovely, relaxing and safe Christmas!

See you all in the new year.

Miss Coles
