PK3.3 - Peek at the week
10th - 14th October
Hello PK3.3 parents!
Time is rolling by so quickly here in PK3! We are almost at the end of our Ball Study Unit but the fun of learning still continues. Our morning conversations are becoming more complex as the children recall and apply their knowledge to our daily questions, such as “Can you make your body into a ball?” Our experiments are also becoming more interesting!
This week we learnt about force and velocity as we experimented with a wrecking ball. It was great to hear the children talking about how they could pull the ball back higher to make it go faster and hit harder.
We also went on a Sphere Hunt around school, taking our camera and clipboards to record what ball shaped items we spotted. Take a look below to see what we found! Encourage your children to look around your home and social area and see how many different sphere shaped items they can find. Ask them draw a picture of their findings and bring it to share with the class next week.
Have a great weekend,
