Year 3 are investigators!

29 Nov 2015

I would first of all like to say a big thank you to all of the parents who attended parents evening this week. Year 3 had a fantastic turnout. It was lovely to share the wonderful things the children have been doing with the parents, and being able to see how much support they also receive at home!

This week has been a week for investigations for Year 3. In maths we have been learning about capacity. The children were estimating how much a container could hold, then learning to measure the actual capacity accurately. We were very impressed to find that one of our containers could hold a staggering 3000 ml!

In science the children have been investigating rocks. They enjoyed testing how robust rocks were with me in the scratch test, and used the learnpads to discover whether different rocks were water resistant, could float in water or scratch easily. Later in the week we also learned how fossils are formed. The children were very interested in this - especially when I surprised them with a T-Rex tooth fossil of my own! 

In literacy we have started a new unit. We are learning all about autobiography with the aim to write our own autobiography. We have been looking at blogs and powerpoints written by Little Red Riding Hood and thinking about what kind of information she included in her autobiography. On Friday we began writing our own Stone Age story based on the book we had read in Topic: 'Stone Age Boy'. The children ended their openings by finding a cave and falling...falling...falling... I wonder what will happen next?!
