Date: 15th Mar 2019 @ 3:43pm

This week in Year 3, we have been working extremely hard and enjoying the following activities:

Maths – We have focused on the following objectives:

  • Fraction investigation – Is it less than a half, the same as a half or more than a half?
      • Equivalent fraction problems
      • Finding fractions of number
  • English – We have finished our explanation topic on the LEGO story. Children have written an explanation text which explains the history of LEGO.
  • Geography – We used co-ordinates to navigate around a map and used the vocabulary of latitude and longitude.
  • Science – Light – What object would make a good shadow? We discovered that an opaque object doesn’t allow any light through, a translucent object only allows part of the light through and a transparent object allows all the light to pass through.
