Year 3 Class Updates
Year 3 had a fantastic day exploring light and shadows. The children enjoyed investigating how shadows are formed and how and why they change. The children completed an experiment where they blocked the light and measured the length of the shadow. The children concluded that the closer the light source the shorter the shadow because more light is blocked. Bar charts were used to present their findings. What a fantastic day of Science!
Callum said ' I love Science! I wish everyday could be a Science Day!'
Jacob explained, 'An opaque object blocks the light and that is why shadows are formed.'
The children have enjoyed their Gymnastic sessions with Ms Stone this half term. They have learnt about different balances and how to move around the room. The children created their own sequences which included the balances they had learnt and presented them to the class.
The children have been enjoying our new topic 'Tremors.' The children have learnt about the layers of the Earth and the different rocks- sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic. The children became geologists and looked at the properties of different rocks whilst considering how to make it a fair test.
World Book Day
Year 3 had a great world book day. They enjoyed looking at a range of books and sharing these with the Reception class. The children created book covers, wrote book reviews and created their own book marks. The costumes were all fantastic!
We have been exploring the text 'The Pebble in my Pocket.' The children used drama to bring the story to life and were able to retell the journey of the pebble. During the rest of the term, we will be looking at explanation texts, discussing the features and writing reports about volcanoes.
