In Friday’s Maths lesson, Year 3 have combined all the learning they have done so far and made three-digit numbers using concrete resources. We looked at the representation of hundreds, tens and ones and discussed how we can use these to help us identify the place value of each digit.
In English today, the children have been learning about glossaries. We know that glossaries are found in non-fiction texts, are written in the present tense and glossary terms are written in alphabetical order. They had a look at some examples of glossaries, matched glossary subheadings to their definitions and wrote their own definition based on a glossary subheading.
This week, Year 3 have had their first basketball lesson and have focused on dribbling in order to travel with the ball. They learnt the correct technique for dribbling: push the ball with your fingertips rather than your palm and bounce the ball at waist height, at the side of your body, to allow you to run.
