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.
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.
