Miss Lawton from ARISE came and spoke to our children on Monday. ARISE: Anti-Racism in Schools and Education, provides anti-racism training and workshops for pupils. Children gained an increased awareness of what racism looks like and what they can do to work towards stopping racism.
The Year 3 children were lucky enough to have some gardening sessions this term. The children used spotter sheets to identify various plants and animals and were even given the opportunity to look at a real bird's nest.
This week we have focused entirely on Measurement - specifically length. We have been using standard units such as centimetres, metres and millimetres.
As part of our learning in DT, we visited Pizza Express in Westfield London. This trip gave the children the opportunity to learn about selecting seasonal, quality ingredients, weighing them according to a recipe and then how these pizzas are made professionally.
As part of our Year 3 grammar, we focused on prepositions. We identified them in sentences and then rounded the lesson off with preposition bingo!
We used rulers to measure in centimetres today! It's a key skill to have.
We began our new Maths unit of Length and Perimeter by measuring using different materials. We spoke about the idea of "non-standard units" - but problems arose! We figured out that we needed a standard unit - a unit that never changes. This will lead into our learning about centimetres and metres during the week.
Year 3 have been working tirelessly on division - especially with remainders. It's tricky, but we're getting there!
We have been speaking about how mirrors work in Year 3. Today we experimented with light and mirrors to see why mirrors are reflective.
We used torches to test how light reflected off different materials. We discovered that the best reflectors are shiny, smooth surfaces!
We used Base Ten to build our multiplication sentences. Exchanging is tricky, but the Base Ten helps us to figure it out.
Mr Pastor taught us how to introduce ourselves in Spanish. We practiced this with our friends!
