Year 3/4: Maple Class - Mrs Rushby & Miss Fish

More Wow Day Pictures...

Maple class had a fantastic start to the school year with our amazing Explorer WOW day. Thanks to FEBA for our wonderful forest school, we were able recreate the thrill of being a rainforest explorer and develop our team building skills. We are also loving reading ‘The Explorer’ by Katherine Rundel; we spent some time reading at our camp site.

Maple class love working together to focus on questions around the number of the day. We have been thinking particularly about place value at the start of the term.

We have been comparing our local habitat with the rainforest. We have thinking particularly about the different layers of the forest.

Our current topic in Year 3/4 is ‘Food and Farming’. We are transforming our classrooms into food and farming havens where we will be discovering more about the meals we eat and how plants are grown. Our topic will draw on our imaginations, encouraging us to think about local and global farming practices, fair trade and future sustainability.

Our WOW day!

What an explosive start to our new Autumn topic - Active Planet! 


 

 

Year 3 and 4 started the term with a bang, experimenting with incredible exploding volcanoes using bicarbonate of soda, red food dye and vinegar. We wondered whether our volcanoes were extinct or dormant but it soon became clear they were extremely active and even erupting!

 

Thank you children and parents for all the brilliant models that have been coming in. We are trying to identify whether they are based on famous volcanoes like Vesuvius, Eyjafjallajökull or Mount Fuji. We have quite a few danger zones in school now so be warned...you enter at your own risk! Wear protective volcanologist clothing please for your own safety.

 

Why not try this website to find out more about the world's incredible erupting volcanoes:
