Exciting Experiments

Today, Year 3 children looked at different properties of rocks including density, permeability and durability. We moved around the classroom and completed different experiments. We checked density of rocks by testing if they sank or floated. We used a small square of sand paper to test how durable the rocks were. To test permeability we added few drops of water using a pipette onto a rock and observed whether it was absorbed. We also completed a rock game on Education City and researched rocks using different books. 

World Cup Year 3 Style!

Year 3 played football in their house teams with each team representing a country. 

They really enjoyed playing as part of a team. Lots of passion for football was shown by Year 3.

All children in Year 3 have been working incredibly hard! Special congratulations to the children who have received Head Teacher's and Good to be Green Awards this week. Keep up the good work!
