We are still scientists!

Today we have been conducting our scientific research into changing states – in particular how temperature changes in water as ice melts.

We grappled with using thermometers and then this afternoon, our English writing focus was how we write reports like scientists.

Well done 3G – we will report our results tomorrow!

Our Super Speakers

Today’s postcards went to Barrington and Sumit who both impressed me today with their confidence in sharing their learning with not only the class but also our visitors to school. We’re all really proud of you boys, well done!

States of Matter

Yesterday and today as part of our new Science Case Study, the children were finding out about the different states of matter. They worked collaboratively to create posters on the differences between solids, liquids and gases. We enjoyed debating whether slime was a liquid or a gas. What do you think it is?

Being kind

Kayden’s family have been doing some volunteer work and in return they were gifted with some brand new Winnie the Pooh books. Kayden generously brought in each friend in his class a copy of the book for them to take home and keep.

4L have absolutely loved reading this book today, they asked if they could start it during their accelerated reader time.

Thank you Kayden

We are Scientists in 3G

Today we have started our Case Study 2 – “Why Does Matter Change State?” for our “Why is Sugar Not So Sweet” expedition.

After finding out what we already know about Solids, Liquids and Gases, we then conducted our first experiment , so that we could see how to structure a scientific report.

Our experiment question was: ” Does the size of sugar granules affect the speed that the sugar dissolves in water?”

We conducted fair tests with Demerara, Granulated and Icing Sugar, as well as sugar cubes.

We have loved being scientists this afternoon and we are really looking forward to developing our scientific investigation skills over the next few weeks!

We are scientists

Have you ever wondered which kind of sugar dissolves the fastest? Well today we carried out an experiment to find out. First we hypothesised then carried out a fair test and got some surprising results. Children have collaborated to carry out their experiments and looked at a scientific report which shows their results, learning lots of new language along the way. Do you know what matter, particles or states mean?

Improved Attendance

We have started a competition in 3LS to improve attendance. Here are this week’s winners for the biggest improvement. Well done Ara and Esmae! 100% since we started our competition and this improvement is already showing through in your beautiful writing. Keep it up! I wonder who will win this week!

Getting Smart

Esmae worked really hard last week, particularly on her diary writing so really deserved this postcard. Not only has she been getting smart but she’s quick to volunteer and support her friends with their learning too.
Well done Esmae!
