The children will be investigating the properties of different metals in this topic. Working together as scientists, they will perform experiments using magnets and compasses to discover how and why different forces act on objects. The children will sort materials into magnetic and non-magnetic. They will try to protect an egg being dropped from a height, using a variety of materials to stop it breaking, making links to how our own skeleton protects our vital organs. They will research the function of our skeletons and organs, learning how to keep healthy and fit.

On Wednesday Google Expeditions came into school to share their new education app 'Expedition'. By using virtual reality technology the children were transported to different places around the world. They visited volcanoes, underwater reefs and the Galápagos Islands. All of this could be seen through a simple free app from the Apple Store and the Play Store.
Year Three experience different volcanoes around the world and had an amazing time learning different facts.
Year 3 have had a great time creating there own class volcano by making slat dough and wrapping it around a bottle of Cherryade.
They also created their own model village by using lots of different cardboard boxes to make buildings and had lots of fun decorating and painting them.
In the afternoon, we all went outside to erupt the volcanoes with our villages. We were all excited, surprised and shocked to see the explosion.
On Friday, all the children in school took part in a special assembly. They all cam dressed up in spotty clothes to raise money for Children in Need.
