Week Beginning 6.2.23
Children's Mental Health Week
This week we have been supporting Children's Mental Health Week. We had an assembly discussing the importance of Mental Health and how important being outside in the fresh air can be.
One of our activities this week was a 'Walk and Talk'. We partnered up with someone from the other Year 3 class who we didn't know very well and walked around the outside of the school with them, asking them questions about themselves and answering the questions they asked about us.
It was a lovely bright morning and a sunny walk and we got to meet and talk to someone new but we were glad we wore our coats!
Week beginning 30.1.23
We have started learning about division in Maths this week, it was a little tricky to start with but we have persevered and with the help of our knowledge of times tables we are getting to grips with it!
Week beginning 23.1.23
We have been learning about sending emails in Computing over the last few weeks. This week we attempted to attach an image to our emails. It has been tricky but we persevered and some of us were eventually successful!
Week beginning 16.1.23
This week we investigated forces and friction in Science. We pulled heavy boxes across different surfaces and measured the amount of force we needed to move the box in Newtons (N).
We discovered that smooth surfaces needed less force to move and rough surfaces needed more because they created more friction.
Week beginning 9.1.23
This week we started our new History topic for this term, Ancient Egypt.
We learnt what an Egyptologist was and made a timeline of the Ancient Egyptian Civilisation.
In our Art lesson we started a mosaic collage of Tutankhamun's Death Mask.
If you would like to spend some time outside school learning more about Ancient Egypt, Epping Forest District Museum in Waltham Abbey has a special exhibition all about Animal Mummies which runs until the 15th April. Admission is free and the museum is open on Saturdays! Please see the link below for more details.
