Computing

In Year 3T, we love Computing! These first two weeks, we are working on online safety, including how to communicate safely and respectfully online.

Over the rest of this half term, we will be building on our coding skills by using 2Code to create our own games and computer programmes!

What is your favourite thing about Computing?

Writing based on our class novel

This week, we have started reading Frank Einstein and the Anti-Matter Motor, which is by our class author, Jon Scieszka. It is all about Frank Einstein, who creates robots in his garage. 

We have written instructions on how to be a mad scientist. Take a look at Hayden’s and Meerab’s amazing writing (click the pictures to see full size to read):

Today, we have discussed the pros and cons of robots, and we held a debate to discuss whether we think robots are a good thing. Tomorrow, we will be writing a discussion based on our ideas!

What do YOU think about robots? Are they a good thing or a bad thing?

Life Education Caravan Workshop

This week, we have been visiting the Life Education Caravan. We learned all about the  different parts inside our body, like the liver, stomach and heart. We also learned about the brain and how important it is. It sends messages to different parts of our body to control them.

We talked about different things that can either help or harm our body. Some of these were easy, like sleep helps our body and cigarettes harm our body. However, some were tricky, like medicines. Medicines help us if we take the right amount of the right medicine at the right time. But if we take too much or if we take medicine for somebody else, it can be harmful. So we always need an adult to help us.

Tell me something you learned, 3T!

Wheelchair Awareness

Today, we have taken part in a wheelchair awareness session.

We used the wheelchairs and found out how tricky it is to move forwards, backward and turn around.

We learned how people do ‘wheelies’ to move themselves up onto kerbs, but James told us that it took him five years to learn how to do this confidently, so we know this isn’t easy!

We talked about how we can be more aware of wheelchair users and how we should be mindful to give people plenty of space when we are in crowds.

Finally, we tried some wheelchair dancing!
