Design and Technology

As part of our D.T. 'moving mechanisms' unit of work, we were tasked to make a 'snapping crocodile' this week. We had to ensure we had the levers and linkages in the correct places so it would move smoothly. Check out some of our work!

Maths

Another busy week for 3D. In maths, we have learning how to multiply and divide by 4. We explored lots of different methods and used counters to help us see the groups clearly.

 

                                   

 

Monday 7th November - Friday 11th November 

 

Equalities Week

This holiday, our home learning challenge was to research our own or our family's culture. Everyone worked so hard and shared their amazing work with the class. We all learnt something new about another culture, even Miss Daly!

 

                                                 

 

We were so lucky to have people come in to 3D to share all about their amazing cultures. We had parents from New Zealand and Argentina tell us all about their fabulous countries and some pupils from Bangladesh and Poland teach us their language-how lucky are we!

           

 

Monday 31st October - Friday 4th November 

 

History

Our new history unit of work is Ancient Egyptians. We began by exploring where Egypt is in the world and then looked at a timeline to see how long ago the Ancient Egyptians existed. We also became archaeologists and uncovered lots of exciting artefacts.

 

          

 

 

English

Our new English book for this half-term is Harley Hitch and the Iron Forest. We have really enjoyed reading all about Harley and her mechanical world and her quest to become pupil of the term. Soon, we will be writing a diary entry in role as Harley Hitch so first we had to identify features of a diary entry so we know how to make ours AMAZING!
