The Amazing Amazon

This week, Year 3 have started their theme of the Amazon Rainforest.  

The children used maps and atlases to locate rainforests around the world.  We considered what we had learnt previously about climates and the equator and used this knowledge to think about the rainforest climate.  We also began to find out about the different animals and birds who live in rainforests and started some beautiful art work of these animals.  

In English, we continued to read George's Marvellous Medicine.  We wrote a description of Grandma using all the wonderful adjectives, similes and metaphors we have been collecting.  Below, you can see us acting out a scene from the book.  

In Maths, we have been learning about multiplication and division (focusing on our 4 and 8 times table) and solving problems using multiplication and division.  Please continue to support your child at home with learning their timetables; it's so important for them to be secure and confident in knowing these facts.
