Assalamu Alaikum

This term in Science, we’re learning about Earth and space. The year 3 students planned and conducted an investigation about the length and direction of shadows in a day. Using what they know about the rotation of the Earth, this investigation allowed them to observe what happens to the length and direction of shadows during the day and analyse when shadows are at their longest and shortest. Using a pencil attached to A3 paper, students marked the shadow’s length and direction every hour, throughout the day.

Using the data collected, students created a column graph to represent and compare measurements and answered questions to summarise the results of the investigation. Students were able to apply what they have been learning in class to explain the data.

In addition, our year 3 students have been very busy preparing for their NAPLAN tests coming up next term. We have been working very closely with them in literacy and numeracy to ensure they have plenty of practice and exposure to the variety of questions that may be asked.

We wish them all the very best in sha Allah, and look forward to the busy year ahead.

Jazak Allah Khair
