Today we made our vegetable tarts! Some of us chose to add vegetables we had never tried before. We all enjoyed making our tarts, although there were a few mixed reviews when it came to eating them!
DT Week - Eating Seasonally.
We have a very exciting DT week in Year 3 this week. Today we focused on eating seasonally, where food comes from in the world and what food grows in the UK during the different seasons. We started off by sorting fruits and vegetables on a map as to where they grow in the world. We then created our own UK season plate, thinking about the foods that we grow in the UK during each season.
We had a lovely day celebrating Harvest. We came to school wearing autumnal colours, bringing donations for the Bradford Food Bank. We enjoyed working with a partner to write a Harvest acrostic poem. In the afternoon, our parents were invited to join us for craft, as we made a beautiful autumn wreath.
Maths - Representing three-digit numbers in different ways.
In maths today we were learning to represent a three-digit number which is a multiple of ten in different ways. We had to work in pairs to find four different ways to represent the 3 digit numbers.
This week, we have written our own adventure stories. Today we enjoyed reading our stories to a member of the class next door!
Maths - subtraction.
We worked with our maths partner to complete some calculations. We used counters and tens frames to subtract and bridge through 10. We partitioned the total (minuend) then subtracted from the 10 first, then added the two numbers together.
On 18th September, a special visitor came into school to tell us all about life in Saltaire during the time of Sir Titus Salt. She gave each of us a bookmark with the details of a resident of Saltaire from the past. In the afternoon, we visited Saltaire to see the village and the mill for ourselves. Some of us even managed to find the houses that our bookmark characters had lived in. It was a rainy afternoon but we really enjoyed it!
