Friday 20 April
The first week of the summer term has been a busy one in Year 3 and the children have come back from their Easter holidays rejuvenated and ready to face new and exciting challenges. They have started to look at fractions in maths, matching equivalent fractions and diagrams.
In English, the children have created some fantastic descriptions on aliens using only a picture. They started off with simple sentences and improved them with adjectives, verbs and adverbs. There was some rather interesting discussion about whether or not the children believed in aliens!
In science, the children investigated different types of magnets and conducted an experiment to determine whether some magnets were stronger than others by seeing which one could hold the longest paper clip chain.
The long awaited swimming lessons also started this week and the children really enjoyed their first session. Thank you to the parents who took the time out of their day to assist the staff in year 3.
