Times Tables Rockstars
In Year 3, children learn to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2,3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 multiplication tables. To support pupils with this, we are now using Times Tables Rockstars in school. This is a safe online way for children to learn their times tables. The more they play, the more virtual coins they earn to 'buy' things for their rockstar character. Children can access the site at home, and logins are stuck in the front of their reading records.
A poet came to visit
Irish Poet Tony Curtis, entertained the school with performances of some of his poems. He got some of the children to join in with his poems by helping him read them out and adding actions to many of them. He also brought along his guitar and sang some poems with the children.
Class 3 have been lucky to have had some time with the Irish poet Tony Curtis. He helped show the children some simple and useful techniques to aid writing poems. All of the children were involved with reading out some poems and helping with actions. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and have already tried using some of his techniques to help write a poem.
Class 3's Visit to Tropical World in Leeds
To help us understand our geography topic - Rainforests - better, we visited Tropical World in Leeds. Here we were able to see many of the plants and animals who live within a rainforest. We were also able to experience a little of what the temperature would be like within a rainforest – which was a big contrast to our temperature once we got back outside again! After lunch we enjoyed a workshop looking at how a rainforest differs from our own woodlands. Thankfully it wasn’t raining, so we were able to go out into some woods and study them first hand. We all had a brilliant time and came away like we had learnt a lot.
