Mrs Alison Davies
Welcome to Lowton Junior and Infant School, encouraging growth at every stage of your child’s development.
Welcome back to our Year Three weekly blog
Friday 21st September
What a lovely week we have had in class this week.
In our English lessons, we have been practising using appropriate adjectives to use for our expanded noun phrases. We have been using thesauruses to find appropriate adjectives ensuring that we aren’t using synonyms in our writing. Such as “the small, tiny ant.” We have been applying our expanded noun phrases to a setting description from the book “ Stone Age Boy” We have also been practising starting our sentences in different ways, for example by not always starting with “the.”
In Maths, we have been ordering numbers. We have been thinking about last week’s place value lessons and how we need to look at the different columns to assess which number is greater. We then have begun adding and subtracting 10. We will continue to practise this next week, particularly when we have to break the boundary.
In our Science lessons, we have been investigating the properties of rocks. We have discussed terminology such as permeability and density and assessing if we could identify these properties in our rocks.
In our Music lesson, we have begun our class song “Let your spirit fly.” Last week we practising singing the song and this week we practise keeping the beat with various instruments.
I am pleased to say that many more children have been rewarded with golden time this week. This is due to superb reading at home. As the children are aware, they must read at home three times in order to be rewarded with a Friday morning golden time. I hope we have a full house next week!
Just a few polite reminders.
Parents evening slips have been sent home. If you require a specific time or date , please send your reply slip in ASAP.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Miss Green, Mrs Owen and Mrs Higson.
