LITERACY:  There have been some fantastic beasts created in Year 3 this week!  We have been writing or own reports, using the skills we have learned from studying the dragon text.  We have also been continuing to work on our homophones and near-homophones.
 
NUMERACY:  We've found that there are methods we can use to help us make our maths easier.  We've found that rounding to the nearest 10, then adjusting and bridging to the nearest 10 is very handy!  We are getting very good at choosing the method that helps us the most.
 
HANDWRITING:  We have used this week's spellings to help us perfect our lovely handwriting, making sure that our ascenders reach up nice and tall, whilst our descenders loop down low.
 
TOPIC:  We are becoming experts on prehistoric creatures and have begun to create our own factfiles about our own Stone Age animals.
