The Larch class reporters have been busy at work finalising their alien spaceship newspaper reports. Thankfully no further sightings of the large, mechanical spaceship have been reported above Tanners Wood!
This morning on her way to work Miss Bennett was horrified to see an alien spaceship zoom over Tanners Wood. Year three went to investigate and were amazed when they discovered a strange, green egg in the KS1 playground. Where did the egg come from? What is the strange noise that keeps coming from the sky? Where is the UFO now? Year 3 will continue to report on the incident and hopefully more information will be revealed soon…
This afternoon year 3 travelled to St Catherine’s school to take part in a fun run. The children all showed great determination and sportsmanship. Congratulations to Lola who came 3rd in the girls race and to Freddie and Zac who came 1st and 2nd in the boys race, both across all three schools. Well done everyone!
Today Larch class had the exciting opportunity to take part in a robotics workshop. We learnt how to programme a micro-bit and all about input and output. Our behaviour was outstanding and we were all determined to complete lots of the challenges set for us.
In science this week we have carried out an investigation on the permeability and density of different rocks. We discussed our aim, made predictions and assessed the risks before carrying out the experiment. Once we completed our results table and analysed our results, we noted our conclusions.
In DT this half term we have been designing, making and evaluating money containers. We have put our sewing skills to the test and are really pleased with the final products!
As part of our home learning we have created some fantastic Ancient Egypt models using a range of different materials. Have a look at some of our creative ideas!
BREAKING NEWS: This week was Larch class assembly! Our Tanners Wood news reporters travelled to the Amazon Rainforest and back to Ancient Egypt to interview experts and report back on all our learning in geography, history, English, maths and music! Everyone performed fantastically and spoke loud and clear. Well done everyone!
This half term in indoor PE we are exploring pathways over, under, across, through and around different pieces of equipment. This week Miss Reynolds set us the challenge to experiment with different methods of travel over the equipment and to hold a balance at one point during our pathway. Check out our balances!
This week Larch class were lucky enough to step back in time and experience an Ancient Egyptian workshop. We learnt about when in history the period happened, discovered the process of mummification and listened to (and even acted out) some stories told to us by famous Egyptian figures. Everyone loved dressing up as Egyptians and taking part in all the different activities!
