Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu,

This was so far the hardest competition in Year 3 this year. Many children have been developing a positive sense of competition. When done right, competition can help your children learn skills they’ll use throughout their lives.

Well done to all those who took part to the competition and displayed good organisational skills, creativity, passion for learning and understood how homework works and how to improve their homework skills and discover new abilities!

Some children did not write the right labels. They focused more on mountain, lake, sea instead of describing the parts of the river: upper course, middle course, lower course, source, banks, bed, tributary, meander, mouth, delta, estuary etc. Please keep on asking them what they know about that, so they can reinforce their knowledge.

The Class Teacher shortlisted the finalists and the class voted!

I’m so proud of all of them.

Shortlisted were:

Sarah, Nada, Zahra Imaan, Zahra, Usra, Humaira, Yusuf, Rayyan.

However, the winners were:

Nada and Sarah

Please enjoy some of pics. Some pics were deleted by mistakes.

I cannot express enough how I enjoyed exploring this River Model. I loved the choice of materials , the problem solving skills and the accuracy of Zahra’s labels! Well done!
Nada’s beautifully painted River Model with appropriate labels and oxbow lakes! Congratulations
I particularly enjoyed the recycled materials and multicoloured landscape in Maryum’s model! She really tried her best! Masha Allah!
Look at the care for the detail and the use of natural objects to increase the verisimilitude!
Aren’t both magnificent?
Zahra Imaan’s model is very impressive. She decided to stick fun facts around the sides of her diorama! THAT’S JUST AMAZING!
Sarah’s is for me a masterpiece of engineering ! I loved the multi-layered craft and choice of colours and materials.
How imaginative and creative Rayyan’s is!

Apologies for not being able to publish other models’ photos. Trust me, they were all enjoyable! Well done Year 3!
