Friction

Year 3 have been building their own cars in D.T. Once built they were used to investigate the effects of friction. to do this the children rolled the cars down a series of different ramps which each had a different surface texture. Sponge, wood, sandpaper and carpet. Before beginning their investigation they made a series of predictions about which surfaces would create the most friction. Then the fun began !
Take a look at the pictures below:

Year 3 have been learning about different types of rocks. Granular, crystallised and fossilised. We looked at the formation of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. The children were given an assortment of rocks and were asked to group the rocks according to their appearance. We then sorted the rocks correctly and the children were excited to see if their predictions were correct.







Archaeological excavation!

Year 3 were lucky enough to be archaeologists for the afternoon! The weather was kind to us and we deployed a range of tools to take turns digging and sifting in the hopes of finding some beaker pottery. With our findings we will use it to write a response letter to an "ex-pupil" who informed us of the rumours of the beaker pottery!
