Year 3 P4C – Do we need rainforests?

Your question for discussion this week:
Do we need rainforests?

(Our stimulus: a video on rainforests and deforestation.)

We had some great discussions about the purpose of rainforests and the importance of them.

What do you think?

Ask your child for our main points from our class discussion and use our sentence starters of the week to discuss this question.

Sentences starters:
• Do you have any ideas?
• I understand, however…
• From the opposite perspective…

Don’t forget to share your thoughts on our year 3 blog!

LKS2 Science Week

On Monday of Science week, years 3 and 4 had a great time taking part in some scientific enquiries.

We worked on developing lots of different scientific skills such as observing, identifying and classifying, pattern seeking and comparative and fair testing. We did this through a range of amazing activities called escape from the ice, confusing cans, brilliant birds and mini-beast hunt.

Can you see which UNCRC rights we are respecting? Hint: We are learning a lot!

Have a look at some of the pictures below to see some of our work!
