Today we had a visit from Mad Scientist, Dr D.N.A. who talked to us about various inventors and different types of forces. We watched and took part in air pressure experiments using a Bernoulli balloon. We blew up a balloon with only one puff! We also watched as Dr. D.N.A controlled a huge inflatable football in the air with her industrial ‘hair dryer’! We ended our science show by learning about static electricity. We used a Van de Graaff generator to create static energy. We even managed to create sparks and pass on static electricity from one person to another!
We have had a blast for British Science Week 2023. Miss Taylor has created an amazing new display in school and the children have been finding out about chromatography, fingerprinting and magnetics in our special lunchtime science workshops!
Today for KS2 music assembly, we welcomed Norwich High School.
The children had lots of fun learning different vocal warm ups and were treated to an oboe, cello and trumpet demonstration.
What a great experience for the children!
As part of our English learning, Year 3 have been looking at the story ‘Greta and the Giants’.
Today, they enjoyed making their own placards about saving the planet and loved shouting outside Mr Cross’ office!
Today, KS2 had a special visitor to show them brass instruments.
They were able to find out what makes a brass instrument different to others, how the tubing and size of instrument affects the sound and range as well as ask lots of questions!
What a brilliant opportunity!
All of year 3 had a great time today making bird boxes! They had to show teamwork skills and grit and determination!
The children were excited to use hammers and nails! Look at our amazing work!
To mark the end of world book week, Miss Hicks organised for local author, Nigel Lungenmuss-Ward, to join our school for the day. He visited all of the classrooms today, to read his story and inspire others to write their own book. Nigel’s books: Freddie’s Impossible Dream and What’s That? were illustrated by his son Robbie, who was 8 years-old when he drew the pictures for their first book. The books are about the power of imagination, chasing your dreams and never giving up.
A big thank you to Nigel Lungenmuss-Ward for joining us. You can find out more about his books on his website: www.thatbookguy.co.uk/books
What a week we have had in Year 3!
We have enjoyed looking in more detail at ‘somebody swallowed Stanley’ focusing on similes. We have also been consolidating our column subtraction knowledge, learning about sustainability, including looking at mini models, performing our own raps which we composed on Shrove Tuesday and even dressed up for World Book Day!
Have a look at some of the things we got up to.
As part of English and topic, Year 3 are looking at how we can look after our planet.
Today, we read the story ‘someone swallowed Stanley’ and made our own kites out of old plastic bags. We had so much fun flying them at breaktime!
Mr. James organised a whole-school curriculum day today. It started with an assembly all about how to keep safe online, then year groups completed lessons on topics including how stop bullying online, the impact of technology on sleep and what to do if you feel like something isn’t right online. In the afternoon, our KS2 classes joined up with their buddy classes in Reception, Year 1 and 2 and helped them create safer internet day posters to put up around our school.
