Year 4 have been involved in the Discovery Garden Project at the Museum of the Home. They will be visiting the museum regularly to help design a new community garden at the museum. During the initial sessions, the children enjoyed art and science activities including exploring plants and animals in the gardens, flower printing and investigating soil samples.
In science year 3 have been learning about different types of rocks.
We have been 'geologists' and have been sorting rocks into different groups.
We have also investigated the amount of calcium carbonate in the rocks by doing the 'acid test' and observing how the rocks reacted. We were amazed with the results, chalk and limestone started to fizz!
The new science unit in year 3 is Light and Dark.
The children have learnt how shadows are created when light is blocked by objects. They created their own shadow puppets and investigated using different materials (opaque, translucent and transparent) to find which materials helped create the darkest shadows.
