Dahl Class have been really busy this week completing lots of quizzes, you all really did do your best. I am very proud of how well you concentrated and attempted each question to the best of your ability.
We started reading The Iron Man by Ted Huges this week too. It was great to see you all interested in the text and hearing your imaginative ideas about where the iron man was from and what he might look like.
Have a great weekend, next week we will be continuing to read The Iron Man and will also be working on a new science project. I look forward to seeing what we find out.
This afternoon we explored the formation of shadows, using torches to make hand puppets in the classroom and drawing around our friends’ shadow on the pavement outside. It was lovely to be out in the sunshine, I hope it lasts for your half term break!
Can you remember how shadows appear?
How can you change the the size of a shadow?
How does the sun effect the size of our shadows?
You could see if your shadow changes during the day in the holiday. Draw around it using chalk on the pavement first thing in the morning, then go back to it at lunch time and again in the evening. How does your shadow change during the day.
Have a great holiday, enjoy being with your friends and family.
p.s. Some of you forgot your Key Skills work, I have taken photos of the information you need and will attach them below. Please also read everyday and record this in your reading diary.
Year 3 have just returned from a busy 2 day trip to the outdoor activity centre, The Frontier Centre. Reporters from the class newspaper have some questions for you about the trip so that they can add some quotes to their report on the trip. Please answer them in the comments below.
What was your favourite part of your trip? Why?
What was the most challenging part for you? Why?
I hope you enjoyed our trip, I look foward to reading the quotes from you in the newspaper reports.
