Puzzle Time

Today in maths we have been looking at a chess-related puzzle ‘Bishop’s move’. This has really challenged the children to find the least amount of moves needed to move counters from one side to the other using the ‘bishop’ way of moving. There was a lot of frustration but it woke them up!

Linked to our topic of ancient Greece, the children have been attempting to recreate the intricate designs we have found in our research lessons.   We are going to add paint next week and then they will be coming home! (Don’t worry 3a, you are doing this next week!)

In science today, Year 3 have been looking at how different surfaces can change the way objects move across them. We used a medium sized toy car and rolled it down the bridge onto a variety of different surfaces. Smooth paper, the normal wooden floor, and also a wet floor (the children enjoyed water being poured all over the floor!) We even moved to the playground to see how tarmac would change our results! The car was rolled down the bridge 3 times and we took an average of the distance. It was a fantastic afternoon!
