Summer 2

Week 2 - 10/6/19

What a great start to the week! The History Bloke came into school to teach us about WW2. We looked at lots of objects from the war, he even wore his coat that his dad had during the war. We looked at lots of objects from one family, Alfie Palmer was evacuated to Northumberland but we managed to look inside his suitcase to what he took with him. His mother and father were left in Newcastle. His father was an air raid warden who worked in Newcastle. We even listen to a real life siren and pretended to put out a bomb using a fireman's hose.

       In English Mrs McGovern's class have been looking at poems made up of similes and onomatopoeia. The children are looking forward to writing their own next week. In History we followed up what we had learnt from That History Bloke by thinking about what we would have taken with us if we had been evacuated during the second world war.

Week 1 - 3.6.19

This week we have started thinking about persuasive writing techniques and how they impact people. We wanted to persuade our teacher that Tom definitely did see the lion. We then had to persuade Miss Mole to bring a puppy into school for us. As Finely walked through the alley, the whole class gave him advice on how to persuade Miss Mole to bring the puppy into school- we then linked this to the features of a persuasive advertisement as we are going to design our own holiday advertisement. 

 

All of Year 3 has been looking at the perception of Jesus and how different people view him in different ways. We reflected on how we may portray Jesus and why this was? We discussed what we have learnt from The Bible and previous lessons and how this created an image of Jesus. We discussed why we liked different pictures of Jesus and how they differ from each other and debated why the artists/painter has done this. 

 

Well done all those children who researched about Newcastle during WW2 and created various pieces for their homework. We had an excellent quiz from Noah which we will be using to test our knowledge. It was lovely to see that a lot of children went to The Victoria Tunnel after researching, mapping, watching and creating lots of pieces of work about our local history.

In Science we finished off our topic on plants by investigating whether heat had an affect on the transportation of water up the stem of a plant. We put white flowers and sticks of celery in jugs with blue food colouring and 200ml of water. We left one in the classroom at room temperature, one in the fridge for a cold location and one in a hot cupboard for a warm location. The blue food colouring did not travel as far as the white flowers, however we did see some movement up the celery. The furthest was 4cm up the celery left at room temperature. We concluded that extreme cold and heat probably did affect the transportation of water. Look at the photos below to see how we set up our investigation.
