A busy week in year 3
It has been yet another busy week in year 3.
This week in literacy, we completed our descriptions using simile and metaphor. What a fabulous job the children did of writing up these descriptions for study work. The work was so beautifully presented it was even shared with year 5! It has also been displayed in class. We also spent time learning about Kennings, and then used our skills to write a Kenning about a member of our tribe. Next week, we will work on producing adverts for Omri's magic cupboard.
In numeracy, we completed our shadow clock graph work and compiled questions we could ask about the data. We also presented this for study work and our books are filling up nicely. James asked 'Would the length of the shadow be affected by the length of the stick?' and the children were so keen to investigate this that I've decided we should use another sunny day to explore the question and develop our understanding of light still further.
We have been working especially hard on handwriting and presentation with some great results. We have also completed totem poles, detailed eye sketches and continued to develop our athletic skills.
Next week, we will consider the landscape in which our tribes lived in North America and find a place in the UK where they might have been able to survive using their skills. We will study modern architecture and see if we can use this to help us design modern day homes for our tribes.
Have a lovely sunny weekend. I think our sun dances may just have worked!
