Update from Alison’s Class

We’ve had lots of fun learning opportunities recently in 3rd class.

Maths Week was held in the school at the end of October. We took part in lots of fun activities like a maths carousel of games with a mathematical twist, a maths trail and a ‘Maths Eyes‘ poster competition, see if you can answer our winning entries’ questions below.

In November we were VERY excited to take part in science week! We had a visit from a real scientist (thank you so much to Rahika and Rashika’s dad Ramesh!) who taught us about conductors and electricity. We wore gloves and eye masks while building with Lego to learn how difficult it is for nano scientists to work with things on the nano-scale. A big thanks to 5th class who taught us about coding with the BeeBots. We also visited the secondary school where the transition year students showed us some experiments. Have a look at the post before this one on the website for information and pictures about that.

A HUGE well done to all the boys and girls who completed research at home for their Atlantic Sea Animal projects. The children worked really hard in their groups and they learned loads from each other. They should be very proud of their first ever projects!

Finally, we are busy practicing for our Winter Assembly at the moment. The sweet sounds of singing and tin whistle will be filling your homes as the children do a bit of extra practice for homework. Our assembly will be next Wednesday the 20th. We can’t wait to see you there!

Pop quiz. A Dojo point to each child who can tell teacher the answer to this question; ‘What does nano science mean?’

Happy holidays,

Alison
