Welcome to Year 3
Early this spring term, we had a valuable learning experience at the Think Tank in Birmingham. We visited the Think Tank as part of our learning around rocks and fossils. We were fortunate to spend time looking at exhibits, interacting with displays and completing a work shop on rocks around us. Back in the classroom we had lots of fun recreating the rock cycle using starburst sweets to demonstrate the physical change in rocks from sedimentary to metamorphic and finally igneous.
As staying fit and healthy is important to everyone at Weddington Primary, we had a special day learning to hula with hoop guy (http://www.hoopguy.com/) where he passed on his hula knowledge to us.
With computers being a bigger part of everyday life, Weddington Primary organised a whole school technology week. Year 3 enjoyed playing with Purple Mash and getting to control robots! The week was finished off with a fantastic assembly from Google, where we learnt how to become Internet Legends.
Another important life skill we have been building upon is understanding money. In math we have been getting hands on with using money, opening our very own Weddington Wonders shop to become familiar with finding the correct amount of money to buy items and to give the correct change.
Our English lessons have revolved around our main text ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura. We’ve written Stone Age diaries, letters to archaeologists and performed to the class acting as characters from the story.
