3GB 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 3GB's class page!
Hello, my name is Mrs Bloor and I teach one of the Year 3 classes. I have been teaching at Offley since 2008 and have taught in most year groups. I am married and have two boys who are at the other end of the education system! James is about to start his final year at University and Henry has just started his final year in Sixth Form. I also have a tortoise who is in her 90's and a Cavapoo called Lulu who I love taking for long walks.
Another week has flown by in 3GB! In English this week, the children have planned and written their innovation focussing on sentence structure and descriptive phrases. Next week, we are going to learn how to use two adjectives to describe a noun, how to use fronted adverbials at the beginning of sentences (eg Just before lunch, In the distance, Slowly) and plan their own Stone Age hunting adventure.
In Maths, we have continued with place value and have been identifying missing numbers in number sequences by counting forwards and backwards in 4s and 8s. We have also been increasing the rapid recall of adding and doubling single digit numbers. We will carry on with this next week.
On Thursday, both year 3 classes came together and had great fun using the stacking cups to develop concenrtation and problem solving. In the first session, they had to follow set actions when different coloured emojis appeared, then we had a competition to see who could build the tallest tower with the cups.
In PBL, the children have been finding out how the Stone Age homes changed over time and how the people began to settle in one place and farm the land. In Art, the children have been practising their skills with blending oil pastels and have created some amazing art based on Stone Age homes. Next week they will be learning about Skara Brae, a Stone Age settlement in the Orkney Islands.
Homework books and spellings have been sent home tonight with the children. If they didn't make it home, then the homework can be found at the bottom of this page and the spellings are on the Spellings tab on the top left of this page. The login details for TTRockstars.com have also been sent home with the children and I have set the tables for which the children are presently working on.
Have a lovely weekend!
On Wednesday afternoon, the children have Mrs Clarkson for PE and Mrs Edwards for Computing. Our designated PE days are Wednesday and Thursday but please have PE kits in school everyday just in case we have to change our day because of the weather. A letter was given to the children on Thursday for the trip to The World Museum Liverpool in October. Please look out for it in your child's bag.
