We have had a very busy week in Year 3! Here’s what we have been learning…
Maths - we have been learning about capacity and how this is measured in millilitres and litres. The children enjoying figuring out how much water different containers could hold (with a fair few spillages!)
English - we have been learning about conjunctions and determiners in preparation for next week when we will be writing a new episode of A Tale of Two Robots, featuring Robert and Nita (two room cleaning robots).
Science - our magnetic games are finally complete! The children have worked so hard on these and have blown me away with their knowledge of magnetic forces. Here are some pictures of their wonderful games…
ICT - On Tuesday it was Safer Internet Day. We spent the afternoon learning about permission - what it means and why it is important to know that we can always say ‘no’. We thought of various scenarios online where we might be asked for permission, and thought about what we need to do in future if we are asked for permission to do something. We discussed how to question things and say no in a respectful way.
R.E. - We thought this week about the gospel story of Jesus being presented at the temple; and of Simeon’s reaction to Jesus. We discussed how we are all special in our own ways. We likened ourselves to K’Nex pieces - all different, all with a different purpose…yet when put together to create a bigger picture we can achieve wonderful things.
Reading Corner update - our reading corner is finished and it looks fabulous! Here it is with it’s designer Isabella…
