Year 3 got the chance to create a willow sculpture which is now displayed at the front of our school. We worked with a specialist in small groups to create the sculpture. Have a look at the end result!
Art Skills Sharing Workshop - Year 3 and Year 5 paired up to show off each others art skills! Together we created paint bubbles, have a look at the results.
This week was Science week and 3C have been busy with a range of experiments. Have a look at what we have been up to!
We investigated if peeling the skin of an orange would change if it floated or sank. We learnt that the orange skin acted as a life jacket because it has tiny holes all over it that fill with air, this meant that the orange floated with its skin on and sank when it was peeled!
The next day we investigated how our shadows changed at different times of the day!
We noticed that our shadows were alot stronger and clearer at midday than in the morning because the sun was at its highest point in the sky.
Soda Bicarbonate and Vinegar Experiment!
During Science week we also investigated what would happen when we mixed vinegar and soda bicarbonate. We noticed at first the mixture fizzed up and there was a lot of bubbles, but then, a gas was released which caused the glove to fill up and expand! We also talked about particles and the different states of matter.
This half term our RE topic is "choices." We have been learning that every choice we make has either a good or a bad consequence. We wrote about a time when we made a good choice and what the consequence of this was.
At St. Kentigern's we showed our respect to the victims of the Manchester bombing by holding an outside vigil. Every child and adult joined hands, sang songs and offered prayers up to God.
Light and shadow - today we investigated if all objects make a shadow or not. We used torches and different types of materials. We learnt key words such as: opaque, transparent and translucent.
How are shadows made? Year 3 made the most of the sunshine this week and went outside to investigate how sunlight affects our shadows.
Our Sacramental Journey is complete! 3C and 3M made their First Holy Communion on the 13th May 2017. Well done boys and girls.
