Base 3 weekly update

Home » News » Base 3 weekly update

Another lovely week in Base 3 and I have seen a massive improvement in every child's work ethic as well as all children ensuring their homework is in school on time!

In Maths this week, we have worked very hard to develop our understanding of addition and subtraction. We started by applying our addition skills to missing number problems having to work out what has been added on. This was followed by using the inverse operation, subtraction, subtracting ones, tens and hundreds from 2 and 3 digit numbers using diennes, numicon and 100 squares to help us. Next week we are moving onto multiplication and division, so make sure you are learning your times tables as these are fundamental!

In Literacy I have seen improvements in our writing, I am very impressed! We have been writing out story, focusing on making sure it is in order, makes sense and has description included in it. Along side this we have been exploring conjunctions and uplevelling sentences by adding extra detail. Next week we are going to be moving onto non-fiction writing about volcanoes.

Our volcanoes are finished and look fantastic (I will post some photos next week). We painted them, but we had to mix colours to create different shades of brown to make them look realistic. We then added the lava erupting out of the volcano. We will be making our volcanoes erupt too!

We have started our class preparation for the Harvest festival and will be continuing with this next week, ready for our Harvest Service in church on Thursday.
Reminders:

  • Spellings to be practised multiple times a week
  • Times tables to be practised daily
  • Reading to be done daily (I will be checking diaries next week, sorry I haven't managed to look at them this week)
