This week saw the launch of the 500 word writing competition. The whole of KS2 enjoyed taking part in the live lesson and our school even got a mention on TV! The children travelled to the past and future, looked at current issues and learnt about how we can make our writing entertaining and engaging. There were plenty of fantastic and imaginative ideas involving sharks, robots and hover crafts! Children’s Learning Log is to write their short story ready for submission. It must impress and the only rule is it must be 500 words or less!
We thoroughly enjoyed completing a range of experiments in Science this week. These ranged from can a magnet attract an object through water to does the size of a magnet affect its strength? We discussed our predictions and how to write successful conclusions.
We enjoyed learning about the River Nile in History and discussed why it was so important to the Ancient Egyptians. Did you know the seasons were based around the River Nile and when it flooded?
Maths homework includes questions around multiplying a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number. The children should be able to complete this independently as we have done a lot of work on this in class!
Have a fantastic weekend,
Miss Chambers, Miss Ellis and the Year 3 team
