Year 3 enjoyed learning all about rocks. This was closely linked to English where the children looked at the warning story, ‘Kassim and The Greedy Dragon.’ The children helped Kassim decide which rock would be most suitable for his new roof and kitchen counter. The children made careful observations and decisions according to whether rocks were fragile and whether water could pass through.
Year 4 have been looking at changing states of matter and had great fun acting out how particles behave, depending on if there are a solid, liquid or gas. They also enjoyed conducting an experiment, where they looked at the rate of evaporation of different liquids.
Year 5 have been busy studying the solar system. They have learnt lots of interesting facts about the movement of the earth, why planets are spherical and how the sun changes position in the sky. As part of their homework the children were asked to show the solar system in an artistic way, some children made their own models of the solar system and some represented it as a painting. They all looked very impressive!
Year 6 have been recognising that living things change over time to better suit their environment, but that the changes are gradual. This has included looking at how animals have adapted to suit the habitat they live in.
