Assembly ideas

We have been really busy in Year Three and it is really hard to decide what to focus our assembly on. What amazing ideas do you have that we can share with your families and friends.

Holly’s great idea was to put our ideas on the blog. 😉

Times Tables Rockstars

Today, we got set up with a new site called Times Tables Rockstars – it can be found here

This will hopefully help us learn our times tables – and as a teacher, I can see everyone’s score, and how long they have spent on their times tables.

You can also see your own score and how quickly you answer each question. This creates great pride when you increase your speed!

Let’s see how well we can do in the next fortnight

Maths Challenge

As a class, you need to find the numbers 0 – 100 (in real life) in the next week – and take a picture!

You might find them:
– clock
– house number
– page
– car number plate
– phone number
– car parks
– date
– petrol pump
– calendar
– money

Try to find as many as you can, in as many different places and colours! We do not want 0-100 on house doors, as that will be boring… We want to find different places that we see numbers every day and might not realise…

Our amazing science books

I am so proud of all your hard work. You have learnt lots of really interesting science facts, and you have learnt how to use book creator on the IPad. You have added images, videos, audio and text. I’m sure your parents are going to love seeing them too. Mrs H

What’s in a name?

This week we have been looking at a traditional African story called, Nolwandle. The name Nolwandle means girl of the waves.

This got us thinking about our names and what they mean.

Can you find out what your name means? Add a post so we can all share our findings. Do you have more than one name?

Makhosi and the Magic Horns

Year 3 + 4 have started their new topic today and read an interesting story about a boy called Makhosi.

As a group of 60, we have created a large story map of this story and created our own movie. Have a look below and try to retell the story by looking at the pictures.


Lunch Bowl Network

As you know we have been working hard to raise money to help fund lunches for Children in parts of Africa.

This week in class council we have been discussing how we could raise money as a class. We have come up with a few ideas: mufit day. bring and buy sale, cake sale, making and selling crafts and a talent show are just a few.

Can you think of any more great ideas we could do as a class or school?
