  1. Our walk along the river ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

    November 3, 2017 by Miss Atherton

    Today we walked from school down to the River Douglas so that we could see the features of a river in real life. Along the way we got to get in and paddle in our wellies ! Also, we stopped to sketch the river and collect woodland objects to use in our sketchbooks when we got back to school. On our adventure we even met three little pigs … ๐Ÿท๐Ÿท๐Ÿท


  2. From source to sea- messy mapping !

    In Y3 we have started our new topic Flow which is all about water! Today, we looked at the different features of a river. Using our knowledge, we created messy maps of a river system. Our maps show a source, waterfall, tributary, meander and mouth of a river.

     


  3. Why did Icarus fall from the sky?

    October 23, 2017 by Miss Atherton

    In Year Three we have been learning about an Ancient Greek myth in which a boy named Icarus escaped a prison by flying. His wings were made by his father from wax and feathers. According to the story, as the boy flew higher his wings began to melt and he plummeted to the sea. During our science day we questioned this and investigated what happens to wax in different temperatures. We made four replicas of Icarus’ wings and placed one in the oven, freezer, a bowl of water and left one at room temeperature.ย We concluded that the myth was inaccurate because as you climb higher into the atmosphere it actually gets colder and theย wax modelย in the freezer became brittle. It did not melt!
