Year 3 and 4 are working hard to get ready for their performance of ‘The Rocking Romans’ which will be on our website all about the Romans. To help children prepare for this, you might like to practice the songs at home (lots of the children have been asking).
The time is nearly upon us to start thinking about Christmas in school. Many children and adults ask us about cards. Due to the current situation, we have thought about how best to go about the giving and receiving of cards in school this year.
This year, please only send cards to children in your year group bubble (eg 3S and 3T or 4G and 4L).
From December 1st, children can bring cards and place them in the year group post box. This will be in their classroom. Cards can be dropped in any day up until 11th December.
On 11th December, the post box will close and no further cards can come into school. This will mean all cards will enter a period of quarantine. On Tuesday 15th December, all cards will be given out.
Please ask a member of the 3/4 team if you have any further questions.
Thank you for your support in helping to enjoy the joy of giving and receiving cards, whilst keeping everyone safe.
Today, we were looking at the results of our science experiments and making conclusions.
We looked at what plants need to live and decided that the most successful cress had light, water and nutrients. Even though seeds in other conditions sprouted, the plants were smaller and very pale.
We were really excited about how our experiment into how water is transported through plants turned out. It was hard to draw conclusions about which temperature conditions were the best for the celery, but we could very clearly see how the water and food colouring was absorbed and transported through the xylem in the celery. We cut the celery horizontally and could see the small holes of the xylem in the end of the stem and then we cut the celery vertically and could see how the xylem went right through the plant to the leaves at the top.
