In science, Juniper have been learning about soil and it’s properties. We completed an experiment to investigate the disappearance of the chocolate cake, which was stolen from the staff room last week. As the culprit fled the scene, they left behind a muddy footprint, so we matched the properties of the soil to four different samples that we had. Who do you think is guilty?
Juniper class enjoyed taking part in the national daily mile today!
In our history lesson today, we were visited by Emperor Claudius – a real life a Roman Emperor! He could not decide whether he should invade Britain for a third time, after Caesar had already failed twice before him. We provided him with reasons for and against the invasion to help him make a decision. After debating the points that we had put forward, Claudius did decide to invade and he was successful.
Today in computing, Juniper class investigated different forms of animation, including stop-motion animation. Animation is the process of making a drawing, object or model look as though it is moving. We then created our very own stop-motion films!
We have seen so many examples of creativity during lockdown. I thought it would be lovely to share with you all.
Each class was given the theme of ‘ Tree’ to create a display of their choice. We have had some very artistic displays throughout the school which I thought would be lovely to share with you all.

Juniper class have had a wonderful day!
Year 3 have been busy getting creative and have designed a beautiful Banyan tree display. We experimented with different art mediums and made sure we chose to mix colours next to each other on the colour wheel to ensure they complimented each other. Have a look at our fantastic and colourful display!
Today Juniper have enjoyed using their time in the computing suite to create a non-chronological report on an animal of their choice. They have used all of their computing skills to present the information clearly and include links and pictures.
For the last two weeks, Juniper class have been completing research and writing paragraphs to create their fantastic non-chronological reports on different rainforest animals. They enjoyed learning lots about these amazing creatures and the habitat where they live. Look at the incredible results!
