Children in need

In order to help raise money for Children in Need, some year 6 students ran a range of activities such as an assault course, an egg and spoon race, guess the name of the bear and many more. We were able to take part in these activities, take a look at us in action... 

Fire Brigade visit

 

This week we had a fantastic opportunity as Fire Brigade came to school and talked to us about the role they play in the community and how they help to keep us safe. They kindly showed us what they carry in their fire truck and what all of their equipment is used for. Finally, we all had an opportunity to control the horse pipe and explore the different settings that it has. Below are some pictures of the fun we had... 

Balloon Rockets

 

This week, we conducted an experiment where we used a balloon, cellotape, a straw and different types of string to test the distance a balloon rocket travelled. We discovered that the balloon rocket travelled the furthest on the wire and travelled the least distance on the string. In order to improve our experiment next time, we talked about how we could make our results more accurate. Below is us in action...

Dance this half term

In Dance in Year 3, we have looked at traditional African dance positions and used ideas from these to create our own short dances in groups. We had to ensure that we had strong movements within our dances and included different levels.

Netball Kidz session

This week, we had a fantastic opportunity to have a taste of netball. Netball Kidz came into school to lead a session for our children. The children loved this opportunity where they practiced their throwing, catching and team work skills...

Macmillan coffee morning

We have been learning about the hero Marie Curie and her contributions to helping to fight cancer. We wanted to help in raising money which goes towards the fight against Cancer as well as helping those who are currently experiencing this horrific disease. In order to do this, we organised a coffee afternoon where we brought in cakes and made cakes ourselves. All parents were then welcome to come and have a slice of cake, a cup of squash and give a donation to the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. Below are a few pictures of what we got up too...

How do we move?

This week, we've taken part in some really exciting Science Learning where have been exploring the human skeleton and how our skeleton helps us in everyday life! Through using split pins, cotton wool and elastic bands, we investigated how our joints, muscles and tendons allow us move. Have a look at the photo's below to see how we got on with using these objects in our investigation...

Using Maths resources to partition 3 digit numbers

This week, we have been exploring 3 digit numbers and how we can represent them using a range of Maths resources. From the pictures, you can see the children using diennes on a place value grid to understand the place value of each digit...
