No Pen Day Performances

Today the children were not allowed to use pens. The children were told that they had to create a performance about an author from the past. The children in Year 3 loved learning about Dr Seuss and his stories. The children then used their performance time to tell their audience a little bit about Dr Seuss and then performed actions to his story Oh, The Places You’ll Go. The children loved Dr Seuss’ phrase…

The more that you read, the more you things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Finding the mass of objects

Today the children in Year 3 were able to use scales to find the mass of objects in our class. We discussed units of measurement we would use to measure objects and then chose items in the class. We estimated their mass first and then worked as a group to weigh these different objects.

Mission Impossible

Year 2 had a brilliant day today dressed as secret agents!

For science week we have been studying Mary Anning. We have learnt a lot about how fossils are formed and made. So on Thursday we created our very own fossils using clay! Today we were sent on a mission around school to find the matching shell to fit our own fossils. We then had to complete missions in maths to find the answer to the questions around the classroom. We had lots of fun!

 

 

Brilliant Bridge Builders

Today the children in Year 3 went to the Discovery Museum in Newcastle. The children were given a guided tour of the museum where they found out information about different types of bridges and learned about the different bridges across the River Tyne. The children then used their design and technology skills to test which bridge would be the strongest and were then challenged to create their own bridges with a budget. The children loved the challenge and it was lovely to see their bridges in action. Well done Year 3 for another lovely visit out of school.

Snots and Sneezes

Year 3 have had a fantastic afternoon learning all about bacteria and snots!

The children took part in a workshop run by Newcastle University. During the workshop the children found out some very scary facts about bacteria and what they can do to our bodies, but they also found out that some bacteria are friendly bacteria and good for our bodies.

During the session the children used a UV light to see how much bacteria was on their hands before and after washing them. They designed their very own bacteria, but by far the best part of the afternoon was making their very own snot!
