"At Turves Green Primary everyone is valued and included. Pupils say that their school ‘is a special place because no one is an outsider, and no one is left out’. Pupils, parents and staff agree this is a school that is getting better every day."

Year 3 Round Up Spring Week 1

It has been wonderful to see all the pupils back in school and ready to go. They've settled straight back in to routines and their best learning behaviours. 

We started our latest geography topic by exploring Google Earth on the iPads. Children were able to locate the UK by searching for Europe (it was great to see them building on their Y2 knowledge!); they then found the capital cities: Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.

 Questions to ask:

*How did the sister feel when her brother didn't return through the tunnel?

*What steps have we been using to calculate questions like 48 divided by 3? (Grown ups....no bus stops! The children should show you how to use partitioning and renaming to solve it).

*Why do non-fiction texts use sub-headings?
