Today, Class 3 were lucky enough to have a workshop with Andy from Urban Strides who taught us how to street dance. We had great fun learning the routine but we also learnt a lot of important life skills:
Amy: 'I learnt that winners never quit and quitters never win'
Matthew: 'Dreams can come true as long as you work hard'
Ania: 'You can't have a fixed mind-set, you need to have a growth mind-set and you can achieve anything!'
So remember: Focus, Action, Confidence, Energy!
We hope you enjoy watching us street dance as much as we enjoyed doing it!
Recently, Class 3 have been learning about keeping a pulse and finding the rhythm in Music. They have been focusing on the song 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams and have been using the Glockenspiels to play the tune.
This afternoon some of Class 3 have de-mummified their tomatoes from a couple of weeks ago to investigate whether our predictions were correct after two weeks. Most of us thought that the tomatoes would go mouldy and brown but actually they stayed red but had become wrinkly. We used this example to understand what might have happened to the Ancient Egyptians bodies when they were mummified. The rest of us will be de-mummifying the tomatoes after half term to see whether an extra week of mummification makes any difference to the result.
Class 3 have recently been investigating the properties of rocks and have been trying to answer why we use different rocks for different purposes. We investigated how rocks feel different, the strength of a rock, whether rocks take in water and whether they sink or float in water. We then used this investigation to help us learn about fossils and how fossils are produced.
