A round of applause to the Year 3 students for their fantastic assembly last Monday, February 22nd, and huge thanks to Miss Gail for preparing them so well! The students did a presentation on topics covered in Science, English and Maths, and finished with a dance learnt in P.E. on the music 'Rock Around the Clock'.
They started with Science, with the topic 'Introduction to Forces', where they have been working on investigations to do with forces and friction. The students demonstrated an investigation, recorded the results and make a conclusion, whilst also highlighting the importance of it being a fair test. Then they moved on to English. The children had really enjoyed our topic of Myths and Legends. They read a character description of Perseus that had been written by Kaan Meler; Radek Tomas was on stage as Perseus, Silver Land was Hermes and Cristina Montenegro was Athene. Then they read the story of Perseus and Medusa - it was a version of the story that had been written by Daniel Labarga. The reading was accompanied by shadow puppets.
The last part of the assembly was dedicated to Maths, and specifically adding and subtracting pairs of 2-digit numbers. The students did a little puzzle activity where the audience had to identify pairs of numbers from a selection shown that made a given total. It was exactly like work they had done in class. Yunah Lee had whizzed through this work in class so she presented it whilst wearing the 'Sparkling Hat of Cleverness'. If someone in the audience could answer the question, then they were chosen to wear the Sparkling Hat of Cleverness too. Everyone really enjoyed the assembly and it was great to see the students showing initiative and taking responsibility for their learning.
