Year 3 - Mexico
Welcome to Mexico class. Mrs Taylor is our teacher. Mrs Wilson and Mrs Wade are our teaching assistants.
We have been looking at light and shadow.
The children have been exploring how and why shadows change during the day.They carried out an investigation marking out their shadow positions at different points during the day.The children were fascinated to see their shadows ‘move’ over time, and we discussed the position of the sun and how high or low it was in the sky.
Does the sun move across the sky?!
In KS2 we have the opportunity to learn to play musical instruments.
Mrs Smith came in to show us instruments from the woodwind, brass and string family.
We had a try at the different instruments.
Children in Year 4, 5 & 6 came to show us how to hold and play the instruments.
It was noisy and lots of fun!
At the beginning of term, the children looked at different mathematical concepts and approaches.They realised that by finding things hard, problem solving and being resilient, we can think deeply and make connections and pathways in our brains to further develop our learning.
The children worked on various problem-solving exercises in pairs, in groups, or on their own.They discovered ways to see pattern, shape and explore counting strategies.Everyone had lots of fun as there is no such thing as a ‘maths person’ or a ‘maths brain’!
