Year 3 have been working on mass this week. We have been looking at a 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of a kilogram. From here the children have been able to work out what 2 and 1/2 kilograms is, in grams. The children have also read scales and rounding to the nearest 100 grams. Lastly, they have been adding and subtracting different quantities of mass, which we will be continuing to do next week. The children have found it quite difficult to comprehend the mixed units involved within mass, however, they have persevered and done excellently.
In English this week, we have been looking at writing a persuasive poster, to try and sell the Stone Mouse from the story. The children have looked at imperative verbs and creating a bank of adjectives they think they could use within their poster. The children learnt some songs about imperative verbs and adjectives, to remind them what they are and how we use them in the correct context.
Lastly, the children have been looking at magnet strength in science this week. They investigated the strength of different types of magnets. The children learnt that it is not always the size of the magnet that makes it have a stronger magnetic force field and, were quite surprised to see that actually the biggest magnet was not the strongest.
