3GB 2017 - 2018

Mrs Bloor

Welcome to 3GB

‚ÄčHello and welcome to our class page! 

Please make sure PE kits are in school for indoor PE on a Monday and outdoor PE on a Friday (depending of course on the weather!)


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 Y2 and Y1 children before. I am married and have two boys who keep me very busy, I also have a tortoise who is in her 80's and a puppy called Lulu who I love taking for long walks.

Another great week in 3GB!

In English this week, the children have planned and have started to write their instructions on 'How to trap a Wild Boar'. On Wednesday, they used a dramatic technique called thought tracking - they mimed setting up the trap and then created a 'Freeze frame and shared what they were thinking at that moment'. This really helped to put the children in the moment to give them a greater sense of understanding. Next week, we will finish writing the instructions and edit them.  


In Maths, our focus has continued with place value. We have used Base 10 equipment (as shown in the diagram below) to develop their reasoning and problem solving skills, using known facts to explain why something is right or wrong. From this, we then moved on to placing a number onto numberlines, which was quite tricky as the scales were different but the number stayed the same! 




Our afternoons have focused on art activities, we used the berries that we foraged last week, crushed them with water and created our cave art paintings. They're not quite finished yet, we just need to add some charcoal to define shape and detail. In science, we have thought about sources of light and discovered that the moon is not one as it reflects the sun's light. We were also trying to explain what darkness was and decided that darkness was when there was no light (absence of light) and we definitely couldn't see the object in the box as there was no light!
