Welcome to Class 1!
Year 3 enjoyed a day of activities all about Geology! They...
- listened carefully to a lecture about rocks and took part in discussions about the interesting things they had learned,
- made sedimentary sandwiches to act out the formation of sedimentary rock,
- investigated permeability by testing how "bubbly" rocks are when immersed in water and
- created their own igneous rock using different types of chocolate to represent the minerals.
Phew! What a busy day!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
The Circus is in Town
The Circus Skills Workshop_2_1.mp4
We learned to play different notes on steel pans. Our focus and enjoyment is clear to see! Our other special visitor showed us (and our other year 3 friends) different types of drums and drumming techniques. We all performed together at the end.
This term we are investigating diet, food and cookery in science and DT
Not one Dragon...but Two!
We enjoyed our inspirational visit from some fantastic creatures.
Ready for Robotics?
We absolutely loved our robotics workshop. We were very methodical and worked in teams to program our robots to follow our careful instructions. Perseverance was key in this session!
We love stories in Class 1 and on this page, we will share some of the brilliant books we have been reading together so far this year.
Finding out about Plants
We can identify the parts of plants and know what different parts of plants we eat. We have searched, gathered, dissected, investigated and researched flowers. We
are now very confident about the parts of the flower and what they are for.
Marvellous Maths Modellers
We can use a range of models - concrete and drawn to represent and explore the maths concept of the day!
Sharing our Knowledge
This half term we have been learning about what languages we speak and what links we have to other countries in the world. Children have been teaching the class key phrases in other languages.
