This week we went over to Forest School, it was a sunny morning and only started to rain when we were back in the classroom, timing!
The children were able to use their scientific knowledge regarding seed dispersible and even became squirrels hiding their nuts, but they weren't very successful at retrieving them all!
It was great fun exploring the new layout, collecting wood for the fire and creating clay creatures. The creatures were all given their own habitat, next time we'll discovery how protected they were.
This week we have set-up some experiments to investigate what plants need to grow. The children identified questions they wanted to investigate, the method and then set-up they own investigation.

The Moon Landing
In science this week learnt about the first moon landing back in 1969 and the children re-enacted the scene using the famous quote, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
Year 3 carried out an number of investigation looking at forces. They set-up the investigations, noted their observations and identified the forces in action. Great work!
Using their science knowledge in DT, the child made some mechanical hands.
