This week has totally flown by. We continued to use our understanding of forces from science to support our writing in English. The children have written a fantastic explanation text about air resistance and how engineers use it. We have finished measuring length and perimeter and are now moving on to learning all about fractions. In PE, we have continued focusing on our ball skills and putting our skills into practice in a game. In Life Skills, we have started to look at different stereotypes and different jobs. Our geography lesson focused on fold mountains. The children looked at photos from Ned who had climbed Yes Tor which is a mountain on Dartmoor. This week, we have done lots of listening in French. We noticed that some words are familiar, or slightly similar to English. We remembered numbers up to 15. In Art, we have been experimenting with homemade paints. We used mud, charcoal and beetroot mixed with water. We sketched animals using charcoal and then used the homemade paints to add colour. In Maths, we have been looking at capacity. We noticed that multiplication and division can help us when reading scales. We are very much looking forward to all our exciting activities next week in science week.
Have a lovely weekend. Year 3 Team
