Year Three have been using Scratch to develop our programming skills.
We created games where characters (sprites) disappear and reappear using a forever loop and timings.
We chose our own backgrounds and sprites to reflect our own interests. We also explored using speech bubbles with our sprites.
When our algorithms did not give us the desired output – we had to debug the code using problem solving skills! This meant looking at each sequence of blocks to find out where an error had been made and testing our algorithms each time we made a change.
Here are some screenshots of our games – can you check and see if the code is correct?
This week year 3 have enjoyed some problem solving in maths. We showed great team work by solving problems with our partners. We all showed are learning in different ways and loved sharing our ideas with the class.
Have a look at some of the pictures below to see our learning!
Year 3 have been learning about Technicians. We had the opportunity to interview a real-life technician to find out the kinds of things they do during a typical day. We learnt about the equipment that a technician uses and the parts of a computer. We also made these fun films about A ‘day in the life’ of a technician.
Today Year 3 conducted a Science Investigation about Light and Dark. We spent some time making observations in the Medical Room with the lights on. We then had an even more exciting time sitting in the pitch black making observations about the darkness. Some of us were nervous and excited at first. By the end of the investigation we all had a lot of fun and learnt some very important things about Light and Dark. Ask us about it today!
Ever wondered how important people like pharaohs were mummified?
The Egyptians believed that after death they would have a new kind of life called the afterlife. As well as needing all their everyday possessions for the next life, they also needed their bodies and so they were preserved or mummified after they died.
Have a look at the links below to learn more about the mummification process.
As apart of our Interfaith week, Year 3 have been learning about Faith in Tower Hamlets. We were lucky enough to visit some places of worship in Tower Hamlets. We also had the chance to ask questions of different believers to investigate the religions and belief systems that are in our local area.
