Outdoor Maths Lesson!

On Tuesday, we took our Maths lesson to our new Forest School site in search of natural and man-made objects with one or more lines of symmetry. On our way we found the perfect example of a natural symmetrical pattern – a lovely ladybird!

We then took some of our objects back to the classroom to draw their shape and label how many lines of symmetry they had.

Banjo and Caramel

This week Holme Grange welcomed the latest arrival to its animal collection, two lovely new baby goats, Banjo and Caramel. Year 3 were lucky enough to be some of the first children to see the cute creatures! 


Electric Enthusiasts!

Can you help Deadly 60’s Steve to chose an insulated material to protect him from the shock of an electric eel?

The Water Cycle Explained

Year 3 have been learning about the water cycle. In their lesson today they have created some excellent explanations of the cycle. Have a look at the examples below and see if you think there is anything they could have added or explained more clearly.

Please comment below…

First the water droplet swishes in the sea. Then it evaporates to water vapour. The water vapour goes up and turns into clouds. That is called condensation. After that, the water comes out of the cloud. We call the water droplet rain. When the rain comes out of the cloud it is called precipitation. Finally the rain falls on a hill or a tree. At the end the water goes back to the sea and that’s called run-off.

First it starts with the sea. Then the sun dries it up into the air. That is called evaporation. Next the water vapour turns into a cloud which is called condensation. After that the cloud gets so big and heavy. The rain falls down, which is called precipitation. Finally the rain runs down the hill or tree which is called run-off. Now the cycle can start all over again. In fact, it’s happening right now!
