Tremors - Volcanoes

As part of our Tremors topic in Year 3, we assigned the children with a homework project to create their own Volcanoes. We were blown away by the response and the Volcanoes that arrived! Well done to the children for their enthusiasm and hard work in producing these magnificent model Volcanoes.

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.







Brighouse Residential

On November the 16th a lucky group of year 3 children had the opportunity to stay overnight at Brighouse in Warwickshire. They really got to experience the outdoors and aspects of countrylife. They made their own beds, created their own lunch, helped to cook their own dinners and went for many muddy walks around the local area. Highlights included team games in the woods and night
walking with their torches. It was a fun filled adventure!
