Term 3 began with such excitement as we had a science morning on the very first day. Organised by Mrs Casewell and Mrs Quirk, everyone in the school investigated making tin foil boats and finding out how many pennies they could carry. After experimenting and improving our boats, Lenny had the winning boat in our class… carrying over 100 coins!
Our new topic, Amazing Me! is now in full swing. We started by thinking about what superheroes are like, and decided what talent we would have if we could be a superhero. We designed our costumes, and then voted for which costume was our favourite.
Elizabete was chosen to be our superhero on the wall, her costume was fantastic! Our learning about superheroes and talents will continue by learning about real-life superheroes; Florence Nightingale and Louie Braille. In science, we will be finding out about our senses and how we use them to find out about the world around us. We have lots of interesting experiments to do involving listening, looking, smelling, touching and tasting.
Creating portraits is the focus of our art this term. We are learning about pointillism as used by George Seurat and will be creating our own portrait gallery. We will also be looking at the clever work of Guisepe Archimboldo later in the term.
So, a busy term ahead!
