Year 3 have been working hard on their clock reading skills during our recent maths lessons at Michael Faraday School. The children are now familiar with the difference between an analogue and a digital clock. Our recent work has focussed on analogue time telling.
The pupils have been understanding concepts such as a quarter to, or a quarter past. Large scale analogue clocks have been used to help with this exercise.
Elsewhere in Year 3 and the pupils recently welcomed a special visitor into our classroom as part of our continued learning all about the Stone Age. Jack came to see the children, and to share some of the many wonderful Stone Age artefacts that he has in his collection.
The pupils were thrilled to be able to handle original Stone Age swords, spears and arrow heads. An amour shirt was also on show. The children were amazed to find that it was too heavy for them to even pick up! A Question and Answers session concluded the special visit.
This work then continued in class. A carousel of Stone Age activities was set up. The children had a specific set of questions that needed answering. Each group rotated around each table that contained different pieces of information and knowledge.
