Swimming

Every Tuesday Room 3 goes swimming at Sykes Road Pools for the 'Field of Dreams Swimming Programme'. The Field of Dreams swimming programme is a great opportunity for students to learn new skills and/or refine the skills that they already know. The swimming programme will run for 6 weeks.

Statistical Investigations.

Room 3 have been busy collecting data for their statistical investigations. Last term we had fun looking at different graphs and analysing them.  Room 3 learned how to create Column, Block, Picture and dot plot graphs.
For the statistical investigations, each student had to come up with a question that they could investigate. They had to think about the purpose for asking that particular question. Once they had a question and purpose they thought of 4-6 options to give people and then they set off  to collect their data using tally marks. They picked 3 graphs to show their results and wrote a summary analysing the data that they had collected.
Publishing their statistical investigations and sharing them with the class was the highlight for everyone in Room 3.
