Class 3/4HW 2020-2021
Welcome to Class 3 4 HW. This gallery shows some of our fun learning.
Forest Quest has been a great way to learn, explore and have fun. We have made forest memory sticks by collecting interesting objects that you can find in a forest.
We have also been hunting to find different animals, trees and birds.
We used a natural dye made from wild brambles along with conkers and fir cones to create our own tie dye fabric.
Using flint and steel, cotton wool and kindling, we safely learned how to make a fire.
We have also had the opportunity to play.
In our science topic of plants, we have dissected flowers and flowering plants to enable us to describe their structure.
We have also investigated what happens to celery when it is left in coloured water. This helped us understand how water is transported in plants.
In art we have been studying the work of David Hockney. We used a viewfinder to replicate sections of one of his paintings.
We had super fun learning new skipping techniques in a skipping workshop, despite the rain!
Further forest adventures have included dissecting owl pellets, drilling sections of wood to produce owl pendants, using secateurs to create hedgehog quills, whittling hazel branches to make toasting forks, building natural shelters and identifying trees from their leaves.
Our plants topic in science continued; we learned, by performing fair tests, the conditions required for plant survival.
Throughout all of this half term, we have enjoyed reading our class book, ‘The boy who biked the world’. This has not only given us the opportunity to write a range of texts in English, including cinquain poems, but also taught us lots about human and physical geography.
