The children in Room 7 3rd class did an experiment on Forces and Energy, exploring the effects of friction on different ramp surfaces. They integrated measuring in Maths using meter sticks to measure the distance the cars travelled on ramps at varioius heights and with various levels of friction using a variety of ramps with sandpaper, carpet, corrugated cardboard and smooth wooden surfaces.
Room 7 were learning about friction in science. They were testing various surfaces on a ramp to measure how far the roller would travel depending on the friction level on each of the 4 ramps.
They used metre sticks for their measurements. The ramps were all at the same height to make sure the test was fair.
Room 7 were learning about electricity and how to make a bulb light by building a complete circuit.
They drew diagrams of their experiments.
Room 7 investigated various materials and their magnetic properties.
They showed which materials were attracted and which repelled.
They filled in a table to show their findings.
Room 7 were very busy making clay coil pots.
They wrote and typed a procedure to follow to make your own coil pot.
Well done everyone.
The 3rd classes went to Pine forest on their school tour.
They made some lovely pieces of art and went on a big nature walk up a mountain.
It was a great day!
Room 7 created their own 3-D shapes using sticks and plastacine.
Room 7 were giving each other compliments. Everyone was feeling great.
Pupils were learning about what materials things were made of and they were discussing the difference between natural materials and manufactured materials.
The different materials had to be grouped.
Pupils in Room 7 were learning how to do division with remainders.
