Term 2 - Spring 2

Good vibrations

 

This half term team Seahorses will be learning about music through the eras. Starting with Glen Miller and in the mood all the way through to Moana. They are having great fun learning the songs and dances and learning about the different music styles. 

World book day.

Another fantastic day in Year 3 celebrating world book day. The class loved our school book of Flotsam by David Wiesner. We had great discussions over the possibilities of the story, as the book is only pictures, and worked on our inference skills using the pictures to understand what was going on. From this we produces some lovely setting descriptions and artwork, as well as recreating the idea of a photo within a photo as a class. 

Super Scientist 

This week Year 3 have become super scientists. We have been making some marvelous mess whilst completing our investigations and experiments. We started the week with looking at how ingredients can change in a non-reversible reaction to create slime! The children were amazing teachers here and helped me out loads (there are definitely some Sea Horse slime experts!). 

 

On Wednesday they were looking at the reaction of salt and water colours with Mrs Taylor to see how the salt absorbed the water to create patterns. 

 

Thursday was the start of the real fun! Year 3 became rocket scientists. We designed rockets out of film canisters before launching them using a steradent tables and vinegar or lemonade. We investigated which liquid reacted the quickest and discussed why the rockets popped, learning about the release of gasses.
