After half term, we will be continuing to use column method but with exchanging.
Week beginning 16th October: In RE this week we have started our new unit 'We Listen to God's Word at Mass'. We have been talking about why listening is so important in life, and what might happen if we do or don't listen.

We have also been adding ones numbers to 3 digit numbers such as 532 + 5 and have been making links between number bonds and larger numbers. For example, we know that 3 + 5 = 7 so we know that 532 + 5 = 537. In English, we have started our new book 'The Stone Age Boy'. We have been busy creating story maps and learning our class chant. We have also planned and written a setting description of a cave. Year 3 also enjoyed a trip this week to Edmonscote Athetlics Track.
