Year 3 and 4
We had a great trip to Magna. The children had a day full of Science fun.
We took part in a Volcano workshop and explore each room of the Magna Science Experience. It really was an amazing trip!
Thank you so much to all of the parents and careers who came along to the Year 3/4 parents’ mornings, we rally do appreciate your continued support.
The children have been learning about pointillism in our art lessons and were really keen to share their knowledge and skills with their parents and careers.
During topic this week the Year 3/4 classes have focused on volcanoes as part of our work on natural disasters. We have learnt about all the different parts that make up volcanoes, learnt the correct terminology and have tried to recreate our own volcanoes! It has been fantastic!
We had a ‘tasty’ science lesson this week looking at how the temperature of water effects the time it takes chocolate to melt.
This experiment linked to our study into states of matter and how to change from solid to liquid.
Last week the Year 3/4 children had an exciting afternoon with a visit from a member of the Edale Mountain Rescue team. We learnt about some of the rescues they have carried out, the training they undertake, about the equipment they use and we even got the opportunity to be rescued ourselves!
