Outdoor Learning for 3C
3C enjoyed their time in the Nature Area today. We played games called Eagle Eye and Cut the Rope. After this, we enjoyed bananas filled with chocolate cooked on our fire pit.
We also had fun climbing trees, swinging, experimenting and building!
In the afternoon, Year 3 developed their building skills. Their challenge was to build bridges for insects or themselves. You can see how successful they were from their pictures.
Stone Age Day
Year 3 enjoyed a fabulous day learning about the Stone Age from the Hadleigh Histories team.

Outdoor Learning for 3GC
3GC had an amazing morning in the nature area today. They designed cheerio necklaces for the birds, completed plenty of bug hunts, tried out some new catapults with mixed success and buried dinosaurs only to rediscover them again! The children were able to state what they had learnt, some of them even aged the trees in our area!
Great Greek Day
The children in 3C were challenged to complete a quiz about Ancient Greek gods. The fact cards were displayed around the classroom for them to find the answers. How many questions could you answer?
Reuse Recycle Plastic Bags
After learning about plastic and discussing positives and negatives for the use of plastic, we created our own kites to reuse a carrier bag. Look how much fun we had! So easy to make - no more carrier bags in the bin for 3C!
What makes other colours?
After our black investigation we decided to test other colours to see what would happen and to see if they had a mix of colours to make them whole. We created some beautifully coloured creative circles whilst investigating.
What is black?
The children conducted an experiment to discover what colours make black. Look at our discoveries.

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
