Please practise the 4x table this week

Practise your times tables against a family member or friend with this table tennis game. This works on iPads and mobile phones too smiley Watch out for the 'fast return' element of this game. It makes it really tricky! click on multiple balls to be tested on more than one times table.

BOOK WEEK

The theme this year was "Read the book...watch the film!" and in Y3 we chose to read The Wizard of Oz. The children liked the book but said they loved the film! We learnt about the supposed faults of the characters then learnt about their strengths and this really helped us to improve our use of adjectives in our writing.

We enjoyed imagining where we would travel if we had our own pair of ruby slippers!

 

As always, the book fair was a big success with many children buying books and others finding titles that they would like for Christmas.

 

A visiting theatre company performed The Wind in the Willows for us which was lovely to watch.

 

Probably our favourite activity was reading to children from the Recpetion classes. We were able to work on all our fluency and expression that we have been practising in uided Reading lessons in class in order to make the stories as interesting as possible. we also made lots of new friends today!

The Wind in the Willows

Yet again Emmaus families have proved to be extremely generous and compassionate in thinking of others who, this Christmas, will not receive any gifts. We supported Operation Christmas Child by bringing in shoe boxes filled with presents for children aged 2-14 years. Class 3CB helped the School Council to carry these boxes to the van which transported them on the first leg of their journey, to the OCC warehouse in Speke. On Wednesday the School Council will visit the warehouse and learn what happens to boxes after they leave our school. Aimee and Alex from Y3 are looking forward to helping out!
We've spent time working on place value this half term. Here's a nice way to consolidate your knowledge of hundreds, tens and ones. By now you can all work with the hardest questions - numbers up to 999. This game works on iPads and mobiles smiley Beware - if you answer incorrectly then the shark will take a nibble of your boat!
We will be continuing to work with subtraction after the half term. See if you can speed up your knowledge of your subtraction number facts with this subtraction grid. Challenge yourself to play more tricky levels as you improve! This game works on tablets and mobile phones smiley
We will begin work on addition using the columnar method. This is not a game but shows you how we will set out our work and, most importantly, explains it for parents using the new wording of Hundreds, Tens and ONES. If our mathematical vocabulary can be reinforced at home then the children's learning will really come on in leaps and bounds.
This week we have been learning about one of the major world religion: Judaism. We have taken a virtual tour of a synagogue using Google Cardboard, designed our own synagogues, made a menorah, composed questions to ask our Jewish visitors and celebrated Shabbat with them. What a wonderful experience! We experienced what would happen in a Jewish home on their Sabbath day and sampled some challah, the plaited loaf of bread eaten on this special day. We also had a glass of wine (grape juice) and listened to the blessings in Hebrew. The Sharabi family kindly gave up their time to come in to Emmaus to teach us about their faith. Mrs Buckland and Mrs Edwards were especially grateful as the Y3 children asked such thoughtful and probing questions which our visitors were able to answer with knowledge and experience. It was a really insightful day.

National Poetry Day - Thursday 28th September

We have been reading a variety of poems and turned our hand to writing one on the style of Jackie Kay's 'Word of a Lie' poem. See if you believe us!!

The children worked in pairs and moved around the hall to tackle a number of mathematical challenges, discussing them and solving them using teamwork. They had a wonderful time and were supported by a lot of puzzled and perplexed parents who found the tasks rather tricky! It's a good job your children are so clever! Thank you so much to all the volunteers and please don't worry if you were unable to help.

We have been practising our number bonds to 10 and to 20 this week. The children enjoyed playing this game to test themselves and to improve their speed of recall. Have a try at home - this game works on tablets, mobile phones and computers. Click on the green circle to start then select make 10, make 20 or, if you feel like a challenge, make 100! smiley

The children have now been sorted into their school houses. They will stay in these houses for the remainder of their time at Emmaus and will work to earn house points, in their sporting and academic endeavours and through kind and thoughtful behaviour. These will also be the teams that they represent on sports day and in the inter-house football and cross country events that take place throughout the year.
