    Mexico's Maths Cafe - Measure

    We have been looking at measure in maths and learning about accurately using mm, cm and m.

    We have also been converting mixed units of measure so that we can add or subtract lengths, along with calculating perimeter.

    Our story in English – The Promise – by Nicola Davies – explores a difficult city life which is transformed by the power of plants and nature.

    The children designed their own city window planting boxes – and they had to follow very precise measurements in cm and mm to meet the design requirements.

    They then had fun colouring and collaging their creations which would brighten up any dreary and dull day!

    The biscuits and squash also helped!

    Thank you to everyone who came along.

    Science Week

    In Year 3 we have had an incredibly busy scientific week!

    Plants and water

    We have been investigating what plants need to survive and placed seeds in different conditions testing water, nutrients and light.We have planted our own sunflower seeds, and we have also investigated why water is so important for life by becoming ‘Water Warriors’.

    We have looked at what happens to water once a plant has absorbed it through the roots, and found that by dyeing the water, we can see how the water moves inside the plants (we used celery, and it worked – black or red celery, anyone?).

     


    Planetarium

    If that wasn’t enough, we have also been to space for the morning.We became astronauts and had a very inspiring and inquisitive time inside a visiting planetarium.We went to our sun, the Orion nebula and visited Pleides, Betelgeuse, Mars and Jupiter.We saw the Milky Way and found out that there are over 100 billion galaxies in the universe! The adults were very impressed with the children’s brilliant questions, and by their behaviour.
