aThis week we were doing a lot of finishing off work. Literacy and Unit of Inquiry work became merged in the production of design process slideshows and non-fiction booklets about forces.
.The students have been practising how to describe and explain what happens to the marble as it travels through their marble run. It has been a good opportunity to consolidate and sort out their understanding about forces and to develop and practise new vocabulary items and sentences structures.
In mathematics, we revisited adding and subtracting money, focussing on 'missing number' word problems. We also looked at different equations with missing numbers on both sides and thought about an equation as being like a set of scales that needs to be balanced. For example, 9+ ?+ 4 = 8+ ? + 4.
The students also practised multiplying by multiples of ten, for example 23x10, 23x1000 etc. We reviewed how the commas in big numbers help us to read them.
We are a Grade 3 class in Singapore. We hope you enjoy sharing our learning journey with us this year. Our class teacher is Ms. Vicky and our Teacher's Assistant is Ms. Noreen.
