Class 3 Learning
Class 3 have been going on journeys this term as part of their “Jolly Journeys” topic. We shared our summer holiday activities and destinations with each other, including locating these on maps of the UK and Europe.
In science we have been investigating the journey that water takes in plants using coloured water and sticks of celery. We discovered that water is sucked up tiny straw like tubes called xylems.
In literacy we followed the journeys of “The Mousehole Cat”. This story is about a Cornish coastal village called Mousehole. Using the images from the book and watching an artist paint a seascape watercolour, we attempted our own versions.
We have also been looking at food miles which we all agreed was not particularly environmentally friendly if we can use local and seasonal produce from our own country. Here we are taste testing some vegetables and herbs.
We decided on our favourite vegetable and herb combination to produce our own design of a “British pizza”.
Class 3 know that our brains work more effectively when we are active. We endeavour to keep active with PE lessons twice weekly in addition to combining active ways of learning. Here we are in our “tagtiv8” maths learning and our “Wake up, Shake up” sessions.
