In Year 3 in Science the children investigated reflective surfaces and observed the scientific processes involved. They enjoyed mirror writing and completing their mirror maze. They investigated mirror multiplying and exploring reflective surfaces.
As part of our English lessons, the children created a ‘Conscience Alley’ where one pupil is the main character (Leon) and one side of the alley persuades the main character to do something (step inside the magical box) with reasons. The other side of the alley persuades the character to do the opposite (don’t step inside the magical box) with reasons.
The children then wrote a letter to Leon to say what they think he should do, giving their reasons.
What would you encourage Leon to do?
In Year 3 the children have been exploring the meaning and purpose of computer simulations in our computing lessons. They are using purple mash so that they can also practice their learning at home.
Year 3 were invited to a Price Waterhouse Cooper production of Alice in Wonderland. All the pupils and the staff had a great evening and enjoyed the performance and the 'sing-along'. The coach on the way home was a lot quieter the the one going!
In Year 3 as part of our problem-solving activity, the children had to show different ways that they could divide numbers. They had to use all of their knowledge and understanding of division that they have learnt in class.
In Year 3 the children have been learning about the importance of forgiveness through the parable of the Prodigal Son. In groups they dramatized a section of the parable and were able to reflect upon a time when they had to offer forgiveness.
In science we have been investigating light. The children placed objects inside their box and looked through the holes they had made in the side to see if they could see anything. They discovered that they could not see their object as no light was getting into the box. With their torches shining through the holes, they noticed that they could only see an object if the torch light shone directly onto it.
In Year 3 the children have been studying the story ‘Leon and the place between’. They dramatized a section of the story in groups and then were able to plan and write a descriptive paragraph about a performer in the circus.
