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!
In maths, we used the skipping ropes on the field to create shapes which have parallel and perpendicular lines!
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.
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!
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!
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?
This week in English, Year 3 have been learning about a day in the life of King Henry VIII. To help our writing, we acted out what he would do in his daily life. Have a look at our acting!
On Thursday, Year 3 went on a trip to the Suffolk Schools Farm and Country Show! We took part in lots of different activities; including watching animal displays, learning about livestock and lots more!
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.
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!
