What can you see?

We have had lots of fun in science this week setting up our own investigations. As part of our topic on light, we tested out lots of different theories to see if we could prove them right/wrong. We explored whether different metal surfaces reflect things, if we could see our reflection in a piece of crumpled tin foil, whether light bounces off a mirror or comes through the back of it and how things change when you look in a mirror. We also had a go at following a maze using a mirror and were surprised at how such a simple task became so difficult – especially when we made up our own!
In English, we have written an alternative version of Jack and the Beanstalk from the Giant’s point of view. We have really enjoyed sharing our creative ideas with each other and reading aloud our work. It has been a great opportunity to show off our skills and put everything we have learnt so far this year into context. Some children even had a go at writing in pen, having achieved their pen license. Keep up the brilliant work and beautiful handwriting!
In Maths, we have begun our work on multiplication and division by looking at equal groups and the 3 x table. We have created our own concept boards, showing a calculation in a range of ways. Maths homework this week focus on learning the 3 x table facts. Please also make use of Times Table Rockstars and Hit the Button to improve recall speed.
Thank you to all of those children who are working so hard at home to complete their extreme learning. We have seen some very impressive scores in Year 3 and we would love to bring the trophy back to Year 3 next week! Please remember to bring your signed record with you every day.
If you are able to volunteer to support on our school trip to the pantomime on Thursday 12th December, please let us know.
Have a wonderful weekend!
The Year 3 Team
