In Art today we worked very hard to draw a cartoon Viking. First we watched a video clip which gave us instructions.
Then we followed them step by step. Our finished Viking cartoons look fantastic!
To finish our Science topic on Magnets and Springs we spent today’s lesson learning about what springs are. We looked at how elastic bands can be used as a spring.
We worked together to carry out an investigation. We looked at whether stretching an elastic band more could push a car further. It was lots of fun!
After writing some fantastic mystery stories last week, we are spending this week editing, improving and presenting them. Today we made our front covers. They are looking great. Some of us used bright colours to attract the reader whereas others decided that black and white was more mysterious.
We did some complicated Maths this morning! We were multiplying and dividing numbers by multiples of ten. We used our knowledge of our times tables to work out the answers in our heads!
Can you solve these?
In RE today we continued to learn about Sikhism. Today we found out about the 5 Ks. These are symbols that are special in the Sikh religion. Each one has a name beginning with K. We made posters showing these.
In Art today we looked at pictures of Viking shields. We used pencil crayons and work very carefully to design our own shield.
We had a fun PE lesson in the sunshine today. We worked in teams and took part in lots of different races.
This morning we played a game called ‘Connected’. The aim of the game was to see if all of Year Three could end up part of our long piece of string.
This is how we played:
One person started the game and held the end of the string. They said a statement, for example “I have a brother”. Everyone who that statement applied to put their hand up and one person was chosen to also hold the string. That person then said a different statement, for example “I like pizza”. The game continued until everybody was connected!
