Mrs Laura Swift
Class 3SW: Autumn 1 website photos and blurb
First day: It was so good to be back in school and seeing our friends and I was so pleased to meet you all properly
Maths: We have been revisiting known facts and how we can use these to help us with new maths problems, as well as number bonds. We have also been getting to grips with column addition and subtraction with regrouping and finished off the half term with rounding.
English: Linked to our topic learning we have been researching and writing a non-chronological report on Doncaster, looking at transport, entertainment and history/ landmarks. We are going to send Doncaster Tourist Information a promotional video of our findings!
Science: In Science we have been finding out about light and how we cannot see without it. We have been working scientifically to test various materials to see if they reflect light and different objects to see if they create shadows. We have identified and selected different light sources for our experiments.
Topic: We launched our Doncaster topic with a day of Design and Technology. In groups we researched, drew, and created various Doncaster landmarks using boxes/ tape/ paper etc. At the end of the day we presented our findings to the rest of Year 3. We have also been looking at pictures of Doncaster in the past and thinking about then and now, as well as looking at maps of Doncaster and finding different places.
PE: We have been working on our fitness and strength by working different parts of our bodies.
