This week in Year 3
We finished our novel, Cliffhanger this week and loved it. We wrote some brilliant book reviews and recounts using speech and different sentence structures. Next week, we will be starting an exciting, brand new novel by Michael Morpurgo!!

In maths we have been revisiting the column method for addition and subtraction. We have really improved our number facts to 20 which is really helping us to solve our problems quickly.
In RE we have been learning about the sacrament of Reconciliation. The children created a fact sheet about how we celebrate the sacrament and asked lots of thoughtful questions.

On Tuesday we started Yoga with Katie from the Lancashire Sports team. We learned how to do a sun salutation and began to create a yoga sequence. This links brilliantly to our gymnastics work from earlier in the year.

Next week we will finish our History topic about the Ancient Egyptians. We have really enjoyed this topic and learned lots. We will be exploring the reign of Ramses II and how he strengthened the Egyptian Empire. We will also learn about how the Egyptian Empire came to an end with the invasions by Alexander the Great and later, the Romans. 
Everyone was amazing (even the mums and dads) in our Year 3 sports day. Everyone crossed the line and gave their best. Check out our video here.
Have a lovely weekend
