Summative time

It is said that when you are having fun time flies. The last two weeks just whizzed by. 

The last week we began exploring what is a reflection. 

We did experiments to understand if the direction of light can be changed.

Off to the field trip to the Nehru Science centre.

We explored different kinds of mirrors, learning about Newton’s colour wheel



Our reflections post the field trip.

Understanding the effect of light on shadows and how they move and change form.

Catch me if you can!
Trying to catch our friends shadows was fun and challenging.

Summative time

As part of one of our summative tasks we had to choose one of the many experiments we had done over the course of the unit and present the same explaining how they helped make connection to the central idea.

Quiz time on Kahoot
Kahoot - Light

Comparing shadows and reflection using a Venn diagram

We finally finished  putting together our poem collections for display in the poem corner.

To culminate our unit on Poetry, we organised a poetry cafe, to share some of the poems we had created.



Thank you parents, teachers and friends for encouraging us by your presence.

As we neared the close of the first semester in Grade 3 it was time for some reflections on how had we done over the last 5 months.
Thank you to all the parents who came for the PTSM and made us proud of our achievements so far.

In Math, we have been learning about elapsed time and how to read timetables.
