Summer Term - 10th July 2015

10.07.15

Thank you very much to all of the adults who came to visit us this afternoon. We hope that you enjoyed having a look at our work and, most importantly, how much we have improved since September. We certainly had a lovely time.

 

In French this week, we have been revising the vocabulary that we need to describe whether or not we have pets. We practised writing the vocabulary that we have learnt and putting it into simple sentences. This came in handy when we were treated to an assembly by French Club, as much of the Year 3 contribution was about different animals. It was a fantastic assembly and we enjoyed putting what we had learnt into action.

 

In our History lessons, we have learnt about the history of Windsor as we’re so lucky to live in such an interesting area. We put our place value skills from Maths to good use and created a time line of the last 1000 years. We were very intrigued to find out that in 1635, the people of Windsor were banned from keeping their pigs in the town’s streets, but also to learn that the very first Windsor castle was wooden. We talked about why these decisions might have been made at the time.

 

As part of the Maths curriculum, we have learnt about capacity. Mrs Walters collected a lot of different sized containers, and we had to estimate whether or not they had the capacity of a litre, less than a litre or more than a litre after looking at a one-litre jug. Here are some pictures of Mathematicians in action!
