For science day, we experimented with how to make our own bubbling lava lamps using just plastic bottles, cooking oil, food colouring and bicarbonate of soda. The children came up with their own ideas about why the oil was bubbling and how they could get more bubbles.
Our classes joined together this morning to read stories. This was a special treat during English week.
During a special science assembly this morning Harry and Daisy showed how you could hold water upside down!
They did this without getting themselves or anyone else wet!
For Science Day, Juniper class decided to investigate what would happen if they made bread but left out key ingredients. We found out that yeast is very important in bread if you want a soft fluffy texture. Lots of our class preferred the bread that had no salt in though!
For science day the children created paper flowers without the use of glue or sellotape! Here are some of the winning designs.
Year 3 absolutely loved exploring different ways in which to create a flower without using glue or sellotape! We thought the results were really creative!
Holly class had fun trying to find a way to float a toy using a sponge, a plastic bag and elastic bands.
They were really creative with their designs and most of their designs stayed afloat for more than 5 minutes!
Well done Holly class, I was really impressed with perseverance and team work!
Oak class categorised animals into carnivores and omnivores; learnt about producers and consumers; and constructed their own food chains. Then they applied their scienfic knowledge to English and wrote superb sentences with expanded noun phrases and embedded clauses….phew!
Oak class were set the challenge of constructing a flower with no glue or sellotape. They more than rose to the challenge showing ingenuity and a flair for innovative designs. Well done Oak, you all impressed me!
