Forces to be reckoned with…

In our penultimate we have continued to work hard. We have finished off our stories inspired by the story of Black Dog where we showed off our knowledge of speech, past tense, use of interesting sentence starter and adjectives.

In Maths we have continued to learn about measuring and now know how to calculate the perimeter of polygons.

Here is video to help explain perimeter.

Look around the house and think about all the forces that you use to move objects. 3EC learnt about the push and pull forces that we use every day.

 

Today we have explored how magnets work, asking questions and finding out that they they have north and south poles that attract when the different ends are facing one another and repel when they are the same. Magnets do need to touch object to make them move. We were wowed when we found out that earth was like a giant magnet that pulls us to it surface with gravity. Did you know that it doesn’t matter how big a magnet is it matters only how strong it is.

 

We started the week with a music concert and since have had rehearsals for the Christmas singing concert at the All Saints Church next Wednesday afternoon.

It was great to see so many parents at parents evening.

Have a great weekend!
