3GB 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 3GB's class page!
HAPPY NEW EVERYONE!!
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.
PLEASE REMEMBER SWIMMING KITS EACH MONDAY
In English this week, the children have started a new genre 'Non-chronological reports', over the last few days they have been learning a report all about tigers using Pie Corbett's Talk 4 Writing and have identified the features that are needed in the report. Next week, they are going to learn more about how and when to use adverbial phrases that show time (just before sunrise, every month) and manner (slowly, cautiously, without warning). They will also innovate the text that they have learnt to write a non-chronoloigcal report about piranhas and time will be given for the children to research their own rainforest animal facts in readiness to plan and write their own report the following week.
In Maths this week, the children have been learning how to measure using m and cm. They have also learnt how to convert measurements in kilometres and metres to metres and vice versa and convert measurements in metres and centimetres to centimetres and vice versa. Next week, the children will solve measuring problems using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Our new Science focus is plants. This week the children have investigated the function of roots - to do this they used cotton wool balls to create one, two and four roots. Each root was placed on a tray of water for 5 seconds and then weighed to find out the new mass. The children found out that the number of roots affects the amount of water that is absorbed and that if you look closely at a plant's root, you can see tiny hairs.
In Geography this week, the children have identified the countries that make up South America and have located the tropical rainforests on a world map. Next week, they are going to learn about the different layers in the rainforests and find out about which animals live in each layer.
