Spring Term 2017

In Science, we have been learning about the functions of the skeleton. We learned the names of bones and drew around each other and labelled the bones on our life-sized diagrams.

Class 3 have read The Ink Garden of Brother Theophane by C. M. Millen. We learned about how he made inks out of natural materials. We then made our own natural dyes using beetroot, red cabbage and turmeric. We dyed some cloth and wrote a set of instructions to say how we did it.

Class 3 have been writing instructions. We write some instructions for forming letters and asked Red Class to join us so we could see if our instructions were good or not.

In art we have been portraying relationships. We have looked at pictures of relationships and discussed how the people in them may know each other. We then created our own still image of a relationship using photography.

Class 3 have learned about light and shadow. We learned about light sources, how light travels and how shadows are formed. We made shadow puppets and performed some shadow puppet theatre using our knowledge of how shadows are made.
