Summer 2, Week 7 LJ
In Maths, we will be consolidating learning through fun investigations based on coding and the World Cup!
We have written our Greek myths this week!
We began by recapping the story of Theseus and The Minotaur to remind us of the structure of myths. From this, we were able to adapt the story to make it our own. Some us changed the characters whereas others adapted the whole story, we all thought very carefully about our language choices and have worked hard all year to up-level. Our teachers are incredibly impressed with our myths and the effort we have put into them!
Additionally, we became archaeologists and had to dig through sand to find the ancient Greek clues. We could then research each artefact closely to find out more!
In Maths, we have interpreted and presented data in pictograms, Carroll and Venn diagrams. This helped us to analyse the data and spot patterns. We were able to create our own questions to ask our partners to answer.
On Saturday 16th June, 35 Year 3 children went on a day trip to Montreuil in France.
Children visited a traditional bakery where they had the opportunity to make their own croissants and baguettes. The bakers only spoke in French to the children and it was so impressive to see the children learning new vocabulary and conversing back in French!
The children also visited a chocolate factory and got to watch how chocolate is made from the very first step to how they decorate it. They then had the opportunity to use more of their French when buying chocolate from the factory shop.
It was a beautiful day that both children and teachers enjoyed very much. We were very impressed with the children’s level of French and their exemplary behaviour. Thank you very much to all the staff who gave their Saturday to accompany the children to France.
