Snow Day message!
Hello Class 3, I'm obviously missing you all lots but I hope you're having so much fun in the snow (I definitely am!). I can't wait to hear all about the things you've been doing. I wonder who has made the biggest snowman? I wonder if anyone has made something that isn't a snowman out of snow? Maybe a snow dragon or a snow viking!
Just in case you get a bit chilly playing in all that snow, here's a couple of ideas of other things that you can be doing:

Have a great Snow Day Class 3!
In Maths we've been practising the Kangaroo Method of subtraction and we learnt a new method of addition called 'Expanded Addition'. This combines partitioning and formal column addition to ensure a good and thorough understanding before moving on to formal methods. We have also begun to calculate time differences and lengths of time!
In English we have looked at 'Myths and Legends' and loved the different stories that we focussed on. We have spent a lot of time trying to improve the vocabulary that we use to make sure that our writing is the best that it can be. We have also spent some time looking at 'Performance Poetry' where we learnt and performed some poetry. We also had a go at writing our own Performance Poem based on 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright.
In Science we have been learning about 'Forces and Magnets'. We learnt all about magnets different poles and can explain why some magnets attract and some repel. We also learnt what forces are, and started to investigate friction.
In Topic, we have been learning about Ancient Egypt and everyone has been so enthusiastic and engaged with every aspect of our Topic learning. We have learnt about the process of mummification (and mummified some of our friends!), made our Canopic Jars and learnt how to make and animate a PowerPoint with images inserted from Google.
