We have been busy covering our science topic of ‘electricity’. We have been doing various experiments with circuits including finding out which materials are good conductors of electricity and which are insulators. We have some super scientists in our midst!
In Literacy we have been following the adventures of a fiction character called Sherman. The story is set back in the late 1800's, around the time of first ideas and inventions of the first aeroplane. Sherman was a wacky inventor who was desperate to invent the first ever flying machine. Amazingly he managed it, but it wasn't easy. Class 3 used this great achievement to become newspaper reporters. They each wrote a fantastic newspaper article which described and followed Sherman's Journey. Here is a picture of our display of the fantastic literacy work that the class produced...
Welcome back to class 3!
Welcome back and I hope everyone had a fantastic summer and is ready the school year ahead. Already the children have settled in well to Class 3. For some of us it is new surroundings (including myself) but we are already having lots of fun!
Class 3’s topic this term is ‘Inventors and Inventions that have changed the World. The children will be going right back to the beginning to the time period of The Stone Age and will chronologically work their way back to the present day, investigating and researching the many inventions that have made the world the way it is today. The children have already began to put together their own timelines and have investigated many fossilised artefacts from the Stone Age, which have turned out to be objects that we still use today. We have some super Historians in Class 3.
