Y3 have used the pointillism technique to create their own colourful fish on pebbles. We are going to hide them in our wildlife area. Why not visit and see how many you can find!
Y3 have been mastering a new written method for calculating additions. They have worked very hard and I am so proud of them!
The children were set a challenge to move a ping pong ball from one end of the pipe to the other without touching it. They had to use what they had learnt about magnets to do this. Some groups attached a magnetic material to the ping pong ball, others used the repelling action of the same poles being together to move it. Very impressive Year 3!
In Y3 we have been investigating which materials are magnetic. We found out that some metals are but all non-metals are not.
We have been measuring the amount of force needed to move an object on a variety of surfaces. We found out that it is different because of friction.
We have been creating our own algorithms using Scratch and debugging them if they didn’t do what we expected them to. This cane downloaded for free at scratch.mit.edu.
We have been creating pointillism pictures using a graphics package on the computer.
We like to play fun games to practise our times tables in Y3. This one is called snap!
Year 3 and 4 got together during science day to carry out some investigations. In Year 3 we created static electricity using a balloon to lift our tracing paper newts. In Year 4 the children made aerodynamic gliders and we enjoyed testing them in the playground.
We are having so much fun in Year 3 even the local wildlife are trying to get in. We found this imprint on our window one Monday morning!
