Well done Team Amber for working so hard in each and every lesson this week and engaging so positively every day. We are very proud of you!


This week in English, we have been exploring a new text - ‘Coming to England’ by Floella Benjamin. After reading the book together, we had the opportunity to write about and describe our favourite room in our house. Having read the chapter in the book entitled ‘Celebration’, we collaborated with our Learning Partners to plan our own event to celebrate our class being back together again. We finished the week discussing and planning a weather report comparing the weather in the United Kingdom and Trinidad. 


This week in Maths, we have been enhancing our understanding on place value and learning the value of each digit within a 3-digit number. We have been using Dienes to build numbers, draw numbers as well as writing numbers in both digits and words. We finished the week by learning how to regroup numbers with less pieces of base ten. 


Next week in English, we will be continuing our learning based on the book - ‘Coming to England’. We will be writing a letter to Floella about our first day of school with an emphasis on how we felt on our first day of Year 3. Next week in Maths, we will continue using Dienes to learn how to count on and back in tens from both 2-digit and 3-digit numbers. 


In PSHE this week, we have set ourselves goals for what we would like to achieve by the end of Year 3 and discussed the importance of being in our ‘stretch zone’. In History, we explored our timeline outside looking at key events throughout History. We then learned about the meaning of BC and AD and ordered key events in History that we have studied so far. In RE, we have explored Christianity and Islam. We sorted key vocabulary and discussed each words meaning. We also discussed the beliefs that Christians and Muslims hold, and why they are important for them to follow. 


We also really enjoyed our 'visit' to the Planaterium on Wednesday plus Urban Strides today.


Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!
