Looking at Seed Dispersal in Class 3

In Science this afternoon, Class 3 learned about the different ways plants disperse their seeds. We went outside and pretended to be seeds and disperse in different ways. We had  a lot of fun.




Science and Cooking in Class 3

Class 3 have had an action packed day of cooking and Science.

We split into two groups for the afternoon and while one group made and tasted their own pasta dishes, the other group investigated mini-beasts using magnifying glasses before we swapped. We also all made our own paper aeroplane to investigate the effects of air resistance.

A fantastic day Class 3.

National Science Week in Class 3

To kick off National Science Week, all members of class 3 have planted their own seeds. As well as investigating what plants need to grow well, we have also planted some where we have changed variables including light, temperature and water.

We are looking forward to seeing the results!

World Book Day in Class 3

Thank you to all parents for helping to create such fabulous costumes. Everyone looked amazing!

Cooking in Class 3

So far this week, class 3 have sampled a range of Italian cuisine and pancakes with various toppings.

The children have been absolutely fantastic at trying new foods and have developed their understanding of taste, texture and appearance. We have rated our favourite foods and used the information to create tally charts and pictograms in Maths.

Arthog Outreach – Year 4

Today, the Year 4s from Class 3 and 4 experienced two activities provided by Arthog Outreach. They got to go canoeing down the canal, which was absolutely fantastic. It really encouraged the children to work as a team and communicate well with one another. We also got to experience some bush-craft activities. One group made nettle and elderflower tea whilst the other made popcorn. Everybody had a lovely time and coped really well with the heat!

Chester Zoo Trip

On Friday 15th June, Class 3, Class 4 and the Year 5s from Class 5 all went on a trip to Chester Zoo. It was a really enjoyable day and each group also attended a workshop related to our current science topic of animals and humans. The pictures below are from the ‘Survival in the Wild’ workshop the Year 5s attended. This focussed on how animals are adapted for survival and food chains. Some of the objects the children got to touch, which can be seen below, were confiscated by customs agents and donated to the zoo.

The trip was such a success, we hope to repeat it in a couple of years time.

Bryn Offa Athletics Afternoon

Last week, Bryn Offa year six pupils took a break from their SAT examinations to lead an athletic master class for the pupils from classes 3,4 and 5.  The coaching skills on display were incredibly impressive and all pupils had a very enjoyable afternoon.

Thank you Year 6 for all of your hard work.

Reading Buddies

Classes 3 and 5 started a new reading initiative last week.  This involves the children working together and listening to each other read.  All children involved are really enjoying the experience.
