  • Science Workshop

    Published 14/03/19, by Cressida Whitfield

    Pear and Cherry were completely engrossed in the Science experiments on Wednesday. We explored materials and their properties and learnt about solids, liquids and gases. We had four stations which had different experiments on. The first one was called Chromatography where we discovered the different colours used to make a felt tip pen. Our second station involved making a lava lamp. We used water, oil and salt to make this. We were amazed by this! Our third station involved us finding out which materials were the strongest. Our final challenge station involved blowing up a balloon without using our mouths. We used bicarbonate of soda and vinegar which created a gas when mixed! We had the best time and learnt a lot!

  • Take One Book- Escape From Pompeii

    Published 05/03/19, by Cressida Whitfield

    For our English topic, we have been reading 'Escape From Pompeii' by Christina Balit. This book is about two children who try to flee from Pompeii. This book has given us a fantastic opportunity to write descriptively and incorporated show not tell that we have been learning over the previous Fridays. It has also made us more engaged in our topic as this focuses on the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. We have written diaries and setting descriptions, This week, we are going to be re-telling the story of Traino and Livia and try to magpie the authors style of writing. We have been enjoying this book and cannot wait to show you what we have written.

  • A Morning of Sports for Year 3

    Published 01/05/18, by Cressida Whitfield

    Year 3 really enjoyed taking part in a range of sporting activities run by BTEC students from North Herts College. It was lovely to see the children following advice and pushing themselves in order to increase their skills. They took part in various basketball and football activities as well as a range of running games,                                                                                                                                                                     I was particularly impressed by their team spirit and in the way they supported and encouraged each other. The students' tutor also complimented the whole class on their behaviour, enthusiasm and hard work. Luckily, the weather was also on our side!

    Published 01/02/18, by Cressida Whitfield

    It has been an exciting half-term in Year 3. We are enjoying learning about volcanoes and we are now becoming vulcanologists. We are also learning about different types of rocks and like using the magnifying lenses to study our rock display.                                                                                                                   Also, we have been very active. We have really enjoyed our gymnastics lessons with our Rising Stars teacher. We can perform the ten basic gymnastics shapes and have learnt how to keep our balance while travelling and jumping. We have been doing the daily mile and learning how to pace ourselves in order to improve the number of laps we do in 15 minutes.
