How To Make The Perfect Slice Of Toast!

This week in English we have been looking at the features of instructional texts. In preparation for writing our own instructions, we had a fun morning exploring a basic set of instructions that gave us step by step guidelines on how to make the perfect slice of toast! The opportunity to explore instructions in this way allowed us to see the importance of making instructions clear to the reader, structuring them correctly and in the correct order. Also we were able to identify the use of appropriate imperative verbs in the text or as we have come to know them in Year 3, bossy verbs! The perfect slice of toast at the end wasn’t too bad either as you can see from our happy faces!

Time For TV!

This week in maths we have been looking at time. As a class, we have been focusing on how to improve our ability at telling the time more accurately. Since everyone has some sort of access to a TV outside of school, we carried out an investigation today based on time and duration using the TV guide! Having completed this task, Year 3 have all been made aware of how time is something that everybody uses daily, inside and outside of school. So next time you want to know when your favourite TV show starts, finishes or even how long it lasts, why not ask Year 3!
