Myths and Morals


The story mentioned being able to change into animals

Jamal would change into an elephant because they are big and strong.

Rohan would be a t-rex and a tiger.  Raul chose a dog, Faizan H chose a dinosaur, Miss Drummond asked him how about a sabre-toothed tiger.

Tabasum just wanted to stay as herself.

Miss Drummond wanted to be a cat so she could sleep a lot, get fed and looked after as well as pampered!

Mr L wanted to be an eagle or a hawk so he could fly and be fierce.

Jamal was on fire and could recall the story very well, and also reminded the group that a moral was a lesson one of the characters learned in the story.

Tabasum said that the problem is that all the animals want to be something different to what they are.

The moral of this story is a tricky one.

Division using the array method

Oskar and Shakeeb are going to explain how to divide using the array method.

We want to do 28 divided by 7

  • First we draw seven dots across our page.
  • Then we add a dot under each until we get to 28 as that is the biggest number in the calculation.
  • Next we circle each row of 7 dots.
  • Finally we count how many groups and that is the answer.
Oscar’s book

Shakeeb’s bookFor this calculation the answer is 428 divided by 7 = 4

Can you work out this one using this method, 36 divided by 4?

Oskar has just told Mr L – that if you end up with one or two or more dots that don’t fill a circle of the number you are dividing. This number of dots is the remainder.

julia’s and cherrelle’s booklet

me and cherrelle made a booklet about what have we been learning in y3
it has a lot of information in it about marry anning,volcano’s, instructions and music and last is grid method.

a grid method is you have 6 boxes and in the left top box has a times tables sign  then you have 17times3 so you partition the 17 which will be 10 and 7 so you put the 10 next to the times sign then you put the 7 next to the 10. After that, you put the 3 under the times table sign then you do 3 times 10 which is 30 then you do 7times 3 which is 21 so then you do 21 add 30 so it is 51 this is grid method.

Mary anning is a start of a paleontology and she loved looking for fossils and her father died when she was 12,and she found a ichthiosaur skull  these are the facts of mary anning.

volcanoes well a volcano is a hill that explodes lava and if you don’t know what lava is i will tell you but lava is really hot liquied and it is red and it has a hole on top because that’s how the lava comes out.

Samson’s review of: Rocks
Author: Samson
Genre: Non-Fiction

3 types of rocks :sedimentary rock ,metamorphic rock and igneous rock.
A volcano eruption forms an igneous rock.
Sometimes metamorphic rocks are formed by when rocks are close to molten magma and so get heated up.
Sedimentary rocks are formed when sediment is deposited out of air ,ice,wind,gravity or water flows carrying the particles in suspension.

Samson’s review of: Spirit animals fire and a ice
Author: Shannon hale
Genre: Fiction

I will tell you one page which is page1.
Gerathon moved,her black scales,thick as plate metal,clicked against the sandstone.Her mouth was open,tasting the air her tail flicked playfully behind!she thrilled with life,with her own body sliding over earth,and the earth sliding under is a pulse,a twitch,a flutter,an is movement.she wagged her tounge and tasted human on the breeze.more life!she wasn’t hungry at the moment.flocks of animals skittered,lumbered,and scampered after her,trembling with fear yet unable to turn away.Anytime she wanted a snack,she simply extended her great neck and snatched up a kangaroo or wild dog.She had not known hunger since her escape.All the same,life filled her with desire to grab pulsing things and squeeze.She changed directions toward the lone human,her weaving body frisky.She could move nearly silently,of course,but there was no need.What creature could out-run two runs of cobra?This creature did try-a young man, his face still full of childhood when he looked back at her with wide-eyed fear.

Spanish News

Hola every one ,

Year 3 recently welcomed a visitor to their class . Mari who was born in Venezuela shared her beautiful, melodic language

(Spanish) with the class.

Each member of the class welcomed Mari, introduced themselves and told her their age in Spanish. She was overwhelmed and impressed with the knowledge and correct pronunciation of words they used.

She taught the children the Spanish Alfabeto and finished the morning with a wonderful Spanish story’ El Pez Fernando.’

Beech class were full of enthusiasm and motivation . It was a fenomenal morning.

We are so proud of all our ninos in year 3
