Science - 25/06/2018

This afternoon, Year 3 learnt all about how submarines use pressure to submerge under the water as well as to rise to the surface. They created small model submarines using modelling clay and a straw, which they then put into a bottle of water. Next, they squeezed the bottle to increase the pressure on the air inside the straw. This meant the air become denser than the surrounding water and sunk to the bottom of the bottle. Then when the pressure was released form the bottle, the submarine model rose back to the top of the water.

This week, Year 3 have been looking at the voyage of the HMS Challenger and they have researched the voyage, created diary entries from the viewpoint of one of the scientists on board and today they used the IPads to create a movie trailer. They had to imagine they were a film producer who was creating a film about the journey. They worked in pairs to create a short movie trailer that told the story but in an engaging way!

This afternoon, Year 3 looked at how marine life can be classified into different groups. They started by sorting pictures into different groups and then generated their own questions to classify the sea creatures. They had to make sure that the questions gave a yes or no answer so that the marine life could fit into the different categories.

Self-care Workshop - 05/06/2018

Year 3 had a very busy afternoon with the Supporting Minds company, where they thought carefully about their own self-care and how they could deal with situations, where they have control and where they do not. They took part in numerous activities, which helped them to deal with these situations and created a plant pot with a seed to show the importance of nurturing and taking good care of something in order for it to be healthy.

Musical Guest Performance - 04/06/2018

Year 3 and the rest of the school were very lucky to have a visit from Manus Noble; a professional guitarist, perform to them today.

The children really enjoyed the performance and loved asking him questions and listening to the responses.
