Have a look at what we’ve been learning…
As part of KS2’s space day, Year 3 put the planets in order before orbiting the sun. We also discussed how planets also rotate while they orbit the sun. The children already understood that it takes 24 hours for the Earth to complete one full rotation and 365 days for the Earth to orbit the sun.
After this we all made 3D models of the Solar System.
Then we used Jaffa Cakes to show the different Moon phases. Cutting the Jaffa cakes into half moon, crescent moon and gibbous moon shapes, whilst trying not to eat them!
This week, Year 3 had their second cricket session with Darren. In the session, the class focussed on practising their bowling and batting. The children thoroughly enjoyed the session in the sunshine!
In our kites topic this week, for Design and Technology, the class learnt about the different types of kites and their benefits. They also made their own Delta Kite using card, straws, tape and ribbon.
