This term, the children are learning all about The Romans and why The Romans invaded Britain. This theme has been incorporated across all subject areas and the children have been able to make links with The Romans in different subjects. In Maths, they have been looking at formal written methods for multiplication and division and they have started to focus on converting measurements. In English, the children have been learning about performance poetry and they have moved onto writing their own biographies. In Science, the children have been working scientifically to conduct their own experiments based on this term’s topic – Forces and Magnets. The children have tested the friction of different surfaces using a toy car and they have sorted magnetic and non-magnetic materials. In Design Technology, the children have designed and made their own Roman helmets which will be used for the year 3 class assembly on Friday 15th February.
This week the School Nurse came in, to show the class how to clean their teeth and the class were able to check how clean their teeth were straight after having had their lunch.
During our science lessons on forces and friction, the class tested out which objects were magnetic and which were not. They explained why and wrote down their findings. They also tested out which surfaces created more or less friction to help the toy cars move forward.
Here you can see the fossils that we have made in Science!
The topic for this term is the Stone Age and this theme will be incorporated throughout the curriculum.
The children have been introduced to the Stone Age through a variety of resources and will have opportunities to explore different areas relating to the Stone Age throughout this term. In science, the children have been looking at rocks and the importance of studying fossils. Within Art and Design, the children will be introduced to cave paintings and Stone Age dwellings and they will have the opportunity to create their own cave paintings for display and design and make their own Stone Age dwelling models.
