Year 3 Weekly Highlights 27.01.23
"Believe you can and you're half way there" T. Roosevelt. We have certainly seen the children with their can do attitudes this week.
We have been conquering persuasion in English. It has been wonderful to see the children work so creatively. We have been doing some partner planning too and it has been great to see the children use their working together skills.
In Maths, we have been looking at length - in particular the units millimetres, centimetres and meters. This week we have had to apply that knowledge by thinking about which unit of measure would be best. Perhaps you can ask your children what unit of measure they would use to measure the length of a place mat? The width of their bedroom? or the size of a stamp?
We have continued our Geography work by looking La Plagne. Where we have been using maps to find features of two different areas.
Science this week was a carousel of activities. I think it is one of my highlights from this week. Watching them work together, asking questions and having fun - it was a joy to watch them really engage in our learning. We had various stations where the children were looking at gases. For example, blowing bubbles, squeezing a sponge underwater, looking at the trees, looking at fizzy water and more. We then had to apply this learning when we made dancing raisins! (put raisins into a cup of lemonade). If you happen to have some spare time - I am sure the children would love to share this with you. If not, have a look at this video: https://youtu.be/AMDAzIwiakg
We have loved the start of our DT unit. Thank you to all of those who have responded to say you are coming in to school. We are so excited to share this with you. If you haven't done so already, please do complete the form which was emailed to you. Today, we tasted a variety of essentials (and non-negotiables) in preparation for our salad making. Your child/children should have bought home a list today with their additional ingredients. They will not need much of each item, so I would suggest maybe contacting other parents to see if you are able to share any of the items.
