Online learning week beginning 8.6.20
This week your project is all about
Why are we setting you this work?
Science curriculum aims:
We started learning about light in the first half of Year 3. Do you remember we learnt that darkness is the absence of light, and that light travels in straight lines? We did an experiment with a cardboard box, a torch and some holes to find out all about this. We also experimented with mirrors to learn about reflections and drew silhouettes of you all using a light and your shadows? We have put some learn screens on Education City for you to help you remember what we have learnt so far.
This week, we would like you to continue your Year 3 learning about light following the next aims in the curriculum.
Please complete at least two of these activities:
Follow-up questions: would your shadow appear differently at different times of year? Can you do some research to find out?
Why does this happen?
To help you:
Have a look on the BBC Bitesize website: Light and dark. There are a variety of videos on this website to help explain about light and shadows, along with some follow-up activity ideas https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zbssgk7
For your literacy this week, we would like you to continue to work on your ‘Talk for writing’ activities which you started last week. Remember that there are Year 2 and 3 activities (and Year 1) for you to do.
Don’t forget to log in to Education City for your numeracy activities and the science learn screens, and bug club for reading and comprehension. We can see how much you are completing and how well you are doing – well done to those of you logging on each week!
Keep up the reading, spelling and times tables, as well as those all-important life skills!
Don’t forget, you must contact us at least once during the week so we know that you are okay. Have a good week and stay safe!
