Today we have been learning about the world’s major climate zones and identifying which countries are in each. We learnt that the United Kingdom has a temperate climate, the same as Greece, which is our new theme topic!! #geographers
How long does it take the Earth to orbit the sun?
How long does it take for the Earth to spin once on its axis?
How long does it take for the moon to orbit the Earth once?
3H can answer those questions for you after a super science lesson and demonstration of the orbit cycle in space, that took place in our very own classroom today! #superscientists #howfarcanyouthrowashadow?
Today we introduced the children to the X factor times tables challenge. Every week at a mystery time, on a mystery day, the children will take part in the challenge. They will be given two minutes to complete a set of times tables questions and the corresponding inverse (division) operations. Once they have successfully completed this within the time limit, they move onto the next challenge. There are usually three stages within each challenge. The children will bring home the X factor challenges they have completed in class, so that parents are aware of their next steps in learning.
Have a great weekend,
The Year 3 team.
