The dreaded Miss Trunchbull

Year 3 have been finding out all about Miss Trunchbull, the beastly, terrifying Head Teacher of Matilda’s school. Imagine if Mr. Herrington was like her!


Can you describe Miss Trunchbull using the exciting vocabulary we have been learning about this week?

Which powerful adjectives will you choose?

Can you create a descriptive noun phrase?

Perhaps you could show not tell the reader what she is like?

Bar modelling in Maths

We have been solving tricky multiplication and division problems in Maths this week. We have been drawing bar models to help us think about the question.

Can you create 2 multiplication and 2 division facts for each bar model? Can you create word problems to go with them? Mrs. Rhodes has done an example for the first one. You will need to finish it off for her!


27 ÷ 3 = 9

27 ÷ 9 =

9 x 3 =

3 x 9 =

3 children shared 27 sweets between them. How many sweets did each child get?


Challenge: create you own multiplication and division families with bar models.

3SK’s story time

Hi 3SK!

We have just finished reading this book in class and I think I can easily say that we all loved it! It made us laugh, there was lots of new vocabulary for us to learn and I really liked how the author changed the font for words like ‘bounced’ and ‘jumped’.

What was your favourite part of the book? Why did you like it so much?

Some of the girls found this book in our book corner and they want to read it next.

Send me a comment or write on paper at home your predictions for this book.  Don’t forget to use evidence from the last book to back up your ideas.

Look forward to hearing your predictions!

Try these angles questions at home.  Remember acute is smaller than a right angle (less than 90 degrees) and an obtuse is between 90 and 180 degrees.

Write a comment or bring your work into class.


Why don’t you make your own angle measurer at home and find out what objects in your house has a right angle!

I think that 1/2 + 2/4 = 3/4.    Am I correct or not? How do you know?
