    Year 3 Mexico Class Home Learning

    It has been lovely to hear from children in Mexico class and see some examples of the home learning activities that they have been trying out.

    We have seen:

    VE Day bunting

    Anglo Saxon boats

    Plants science work has been linked to maths through measuring length / height of plants.There have also been artworks linked to flowering plants, with plant sketches and diagrams, and lovely Orla Kieley designs.

    Some children have tested seed dispersal designs, and it was lovely to see a ‘reverse mufti day’ too!

    Keep sending us updates of what you have been doing – it is so lovely to hear from you!

    Week 4 Bean Pictures

    Dear Mexico Class - Happy Easter holidays! I hope that you are all well and staying safe. This is not exactly homework (you can have a look at the photos after your Easter break if you wish!), but I thought I would update you with the following, seeing as we started the investigation a while ago:

    I have attached the final week (week 4) pictures of our science investigation. Have a look carefully at what has happened, and think about why.
    If you can, fill out the observations in your home learning log or on the sheet attached to the class blog from last week (week 3).
    Why do you think the bean with no water did not grow as tall as pot number one?
    Why did the bean that was not watered grow at all? Why do you think this is?
    Why did the plant in the dark grow at all? What did you notice about the colour?
    What have you found out about plants?

    Bean diary and observations

    Year 3 Scientists!

    I have taken photos of our beans for this week for you to look at. Although your observation sheets are in your science books at school, you can carry on with Week 3 updates for pots 1, 2, 3 & 4. Look closely at the photos and plants. What has happened to the plants? Look at the shape, length and colour and think about why you think this has happened. Write a description of each pot, and draw a detailed picture.

    Remember that Pot 1 is our control with:light, soil and water.
    • Pot 2 has light, soil and no water
    • Pot 3 has light, water and no soil
    • Pot 4 soil, water and no light
    • I have kept the test fair, and given the pots the same amount of water.

    I am attaching the science observation sheet if you want to print and fill it out.

    Continue at week 3 if you do this.

    Happy investigating!

    Mrs Taylor

    Munch Bunch

    This week the children have been thinking about the food and culture of Mexico.

    The children were adventurous and taste tested all of the following foods:

    Lime, coriander, jalapeno peppers (hot ones!!!), sour cream, tortillas, avocado, dark chocolate and pumpkin seeds.The chocolate and chillies proved very popular!

    In the kitchen, the children tried their hand at cooking refried bean quesadillas and everyone enjoyed their creations.

    Children then looked at the art of Frida Kahlo and Mexican art based around the Day of the Dead (and the film Coco).They then created a pot decoration to wrap around their newly planted chilli seed which they will take home to grow – this links into our learning about Plants.Good luck growing your plants.Let us know if you manage to taste any successfully grown chillies!
