Week 5 - 01/07/19
This week we have been investigating how light reflects off different surfaces depending on whether they are smooth or rough. We wrote different secret messages and they had to be decoded by using a mirror. We then tried to travel backwards on a curvy line using a mirror, this was difficult.
Week 4 - 24/6/19
This week we have been investigating what materials are reflective and what are reflective materials used for. We tested several materials and chose the most reflective material for our designing a school bag project. We are also becoming more confident with time as we have started using digital and analogue time to compare. We have also been using practical equipment to solve time problems.
Week 3 - 17/10/19
We have been horrible pirates this week and been trying to work out which treasure chest we should take from the island. We were given different treasure chests and had to find different fractions of gold, silver and bronze coins to work out which chest would be the best to take. We were using our amazing multiplication and division facts to help us.
Week 2 - 10/6/19
What a great start to the week! The History Bloke came into school to teach us about WW2. We looked at lots of objects from the war, he even wore his coat that his dad had during the war. We looked at lots of objects from one family, Alfie Palmer was evacuated to Northumberland but we managed to look inside his suitcase to what he took with him. His mother and father were left in Newcastle. His father was an air raid warden who worked in Newcastle. We even listen to a real life siren and pretended to put out a bomb using a fireman's hose.
Week 1 - 3.6.19
This week we have started thinking about persuasive writing techniques and how they impact people. We wanted to persuade our teacher that Tom definitely did see the lion. We then had to persuade Miss Mole to bring a puppy into school for us. As Finely walked through the alley, the whole class gave him advice on how to persuade Miss Mole to bring the puppy into school- we then linked this to the features of a persuasive advertisement as we are going to design our own holiday advertisement.
All of Year 3 has been looking at the perception of Jesus and how different people view him in different ways. We reflected on how we may portray Jesus and why this was? We discussed what we have learnt from The Bible and previous lessons and how this created an image of Jesus. We discussed why we liked different pictures of Jesus and how they differ from each other and debated why the artists/painter has done this.
Well done all those children who researched about Newcastle during WW2 and created various pieces for their homework. We had an excellent quiz from Noah which we will be using to test our knowledge. It was lovely to see that a lot of children went to The Victoria Tunnel after researching, mapping, watching and creating lots of pieces of work about our local history.
