Sharing our Writing!

We have been sharing our writing with Year 4! Year 4 showed us their writing about Thorpe Woodlands and gave us some advice for when we go! We showed Year 4 our non-chronological reports on light and darkness! We told them some great facts!

Circuits in DT

As part of our ‘Light and Dark’ topic, we investigated how to create simple series circuits to light a bulb. We then challenged ourselves to find out what happens if more bulbs or wires are added to the circuit.

Game On!

In PE his week, we combined all of the skills we have been learning in order to play a game similar to basketball. We used chest, shoulder and bounce passes to work as a team and practised our dribbling skills too. Game on!

Country Bingo!

In geography this week, we investigated places around the world that it stays light or dark for weeks at a time. We played a game of country bingo to see which team could find the different countries in an atlas. Our favourite was Iceland because of the Northern Lights and huskies!

Hands on in Maths!

This week, we have been learning about perpendicular and parallel lines. What better way to learn than to make them ourselves! We challenged ourselves to create 2D shapes that have both kinds of lines in them. What shapes can you think of?

3A at the Farm (our afternoon!)

In the afternoon, we practised milking a cow, played some fun farm games, tried lots of new foods, investigated how fish are farmed and even rode in a Police car! We all had a fantastic day and learnt alot about farming in our local area.

3A at the Farm (our morning!)

We had a wonderful time at the Suffolk County Farm Fair! In the morning, we met lots of farm animals,  saw Suffolk Punches, met some energetic working hounds, discovered how to plant potatoes and even saw a combine harvester in action!
