Our theme this Spring term will allow us to the emergency services and what they do for us. The children will look into some of the emergency services in more detail including the RNLI. The children will learn how to deal with an emergency if they came across one and how to make an emergency call and some basic first aid. There will be a lot of learning opportunities throughout this theme with many visitors planned to enhance the children's learning.
Volcanic Explosion Art Final Product - November 2017
Inspired by a British artist, Nick Rowland, the children re-created his volcanic explosion, concentrating on the lava first through flicked brush strokes and a mixture of red, orange and yellow. After drying, the children put out a template of a volcano before removing this to cover their work. They then used pipettes to a drip effect. The final results are amazing! Well done Year 3!
In class 3 we celebrated British Science Week by investigating what type of drink would make the best exploding potion. Water and squash were unsuccessful so we tried again with only fizzy drinks and learnt that Diet Coke makes a fantastic explosion!
