Year 3 make a discovery…

A big thank you to Mrs E for providing such delicious cakes laced with formula 86, they were perfect to eat whilst we listened to Mrs Gill read The Witches! Unfortunately, it didn’t work and none of the children turned into mice!

In maths this week we have been looking at place value, identifying the value of each digit in a number and discussing the different ways we can partition.

After finding lots of weird metal objects abandoned in our classroom on Monday, we followed a few more clues to find out that they were left behind by The Iron Man. After reading the first chapter, we collected some powerful nouns, adjectives and verbs which we will use next week to start writing about this strange and threatening creature.

On Thursday we had our first visit from Storyhouse, Jacob played lots of fun games with us and helped us to imagine what it would feel like to be part of The Iron Man’s story.
