Swifts

Welcome to our class blog! 

This term, our new topic this term is “Tribal Tales’ which covers history from Prehistoric times up to the Iron Age. Our trip to Flag Fen will be a great learning experience for the children!

We will find out about the cave paintings of Lescaux and how they were created. We will collect natural materials to try and reproduce similar art work. We will be improving the quality of our work with a range of materials such as pencil, charcoal, pastels and paint.

Science Day!

12.03.19

Today, we have had an amazing Science day looking at our topic 'plants'. 

We experimented with plants throughout the day.

First, we looked at how water was transported in plants. We dyed water with food colouring and watched the plant leaves turn blue!

Year 3 were also excited to get their hands onto tulips and daffodils, which we dissected to explore the parts of a plant.

We also checked on our beans and how much they have grown so far, we are monitoring the growth weekly and are excited to see how much more it grows...

As a fun observational experiment, we explored how skittles would react when we poured water over them and were amazed by the beautiful rainbow patterns on our plates.

Ladies in School Day

13/03/19

 

Today, we were joined in our learning by some of the children's Mums/carers.  They joined in with timestable practice and used their problem solving skills to tackle some tricky Maths challenges.  In English, we started planning a new adventure story based on Oliver Jeffers' book 'The Way Back Home'.  In the afternoon, we read the story 'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds and used it to inspire us to create colourful artwork.

Fascinating Fossils Found!

This term, we discovered fossils in the school grounds! We were really excited to explore the fossils found and wrote a recount about the day of our discovery. 

In Science, we are learning all about the types of rocks and soils, which we have found really interesting. Additionally, in Geography we are looking at volcanoes, identifying where they are located and how they are formed.
