This Week’s Learning

In topic this week we started by role playing what it would be like to be in an earthquake and the different people that would be involved in helping in the disaster. We then looked at where in the maps earthquakes occur and used atlases to put these places onto a map. We also learnt about the causes of earthquakes and the different ty[es pf extreme weather you can have. Finally we found out about tectonic plates and how millions of years ago the Earth was one single mass.

In maths this week we started our learning about fractions. We started by learning about unit and non- fractions. We found out what the numerator and denominator mean in a fraction. Next, we learnt about what makes a whole and how we can make a whole. Finally, we were able to put fractions on a number line using what he had already learnt in the week.

Year 3 Trip

We are just writing to let you know that for all of the Year 3 trips to the Natural History Museum we will now be walking to and from Sutton station. This is because of there not being suitable train times from Belmont. If you have any questions please ask your child’s class teacher. Thank you!
