Investigating Magnetic Force
3GC have been busy making collages, some still need a little more work but enjoy what they have created so far!
South Pole Expedition
3C have been on an expedition to the South Pole. They had to pack and secure their bags to their sledge, man haul their sledges across mountains, icy lakes, glaciers and crevices before reaching the South Pole!
Surviving the cold
Class 3C performed an experiment to see if a layer of fat could really keep out the cold. They timed how long their hands could stay in the icy water before it was too cold and uncomfortable compared to wearing a blubber glove. The children had amazing fun and were very scientific in their thoughts, thinking about how animals survive in the Antarctic.
3c have been learning about Captain Scott and Ernest Shackleton and the race to the South Pole.
For their design and technology they designed and made their own sledges to help them understand their science topic of Forces. By choosing materials that would cause less friction they also learned how to transport their belongings for their expedition. It was awesome!
Enjoying Science Outside
Year 3 enjoyed the nature area. They were testing their sledges on different surfaces - nature area, playground and grass for friction. They also fed the birds with cheerios, bread/honey and bird seed.
Class 3C have been investigating friction in their science lessons.
