Year 3 news
This week in Year 3, we have started to write diaries in character in Literacy. We have read more of our novel and can see that Little Bull is going to cause much mischief and possibly get Omri into trouble one way or another! Our diary writing work will continue next week too.
In numeracy, we have worked on Grid Method multiplication. Next week in maths, we will link maths and science as we explore shadows and make shadow clocks (weather permitting!). We will record the length and time of the shadows and use this to make charts and graphs. We will read scales and look for patterns in our results.
In science, we started work on light. We thought about the big question: How do we see? We looked deep into our own eyes and were surprised by just how beautiful and incredible they are. We learnt that light comes from a source and can be reflected, that it travels in straight lines and started to think about how shadows are formed. Next week this will link to maths work — as long as our sun dances have worked!
We have also learnt about the history of The Native Americans and started our first study work page to reflect our learning. We are not sure the Native Americans were treated very fairly by European settlers!
In P.E, we have started to work on our athletics skills and this will help us work towards sports day activities later in the term.
In R.E. tomorrow, we will think about the attributes of Allah and consider our thoughts on what God is like. We will ask: Who do we respect and why?
In French, we will continue work to work on the weather and match words in French and English.
Keep up the sun dances over the weekend year 3! We can't make shadow clocks without some sunshine!
This week's Native American Indian thought for us all is: "We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren and children yet to be born. We must protect the forests for those who can't speak for themselves such as the birds, animals, fish and trees."
