3E’s Week of Learning!

This week we have been doing lots of fun things in 3E!


In Maths, we have been looking at adding tens, hundreds and thousands together. On Monday, we made a grid with different numbers on it. We then rolled a dice. The number on the dice told us how many numbers we had to add together in our grid. We coded the Beebot to move over these numbers and then added them together, either in our head or on paper.


In Reading, we have been learning about persuasive techniques. In the last few weeks, we have read many opinion texts, watched TV advertisements and have analysed a variety of different persuasive posters.


This week we have been writing our own persuasive text. On Thursday, we got into groups and had to prepare a presentation to convince Miss Ashby why our group deserved 10 minutes of free time. Many of the groups included inclusive language, high modality verbs and interesting words in their presentation. Congratulations to Keiana, Batu and Anna for being the most persuasive group and winning 10 minutes of free time!

Taking a Stand!

Today is National Day of Action against Violence and Bullying. It is a special day that is trying to stop bullying from happening. This morning, we thought about a time when someone had bullied us or a time when we had bullied someone and how it made us feel. We also wore special wristbands to remind us to stand up and speak up for ourselves when bullying is happening. Here are some of the posters we made to help with this stand!

Emotional Literacies in 3E

This term we have been looking at different emotions to describe how we are feeling. Each week we have read a picture book and then identified the main emotion in that book. We have then worked in groups to find synonyms for that emotion, using a Thesaurus. This has helped us learn many new words to describe how we are feeling.

Olympics in 3C!

Over the past week we have been getting in the Olympic spirit by watching the Olympics, keeping track of the medal tally for some chosen countries and participating in the ACPS Olympic Challenge. Today the ACPS Olympic Challenge involved us competing in some class relays. We did running relays, jumping relays, skipping relays and hopping relays!
