Getting Ready for Year 3!
The children were excited to welcome year 3 pupils into their classroom last week. The year 3 children were keen to show off some of the work they have been doing to give year 2 an idea of some of the exciting work that they will be doing next year!
During Welly Wednesday, the children have been building bug houses and micro habitats out of natural materials. They did an excellent job!
The children have been learning about volume and capacity, and using millilitres as a unit of measurement. They compared different sizes of containers by filling one with water and then transferring the water to a different container, while predicting whether the second container had a bigger or smaller capacity than the first container. They have also been making potions that Winnie the Witch would be proud of, following carefully a recipe and measuring the liquids in millilitres accurately.
Now you see us! Now you don't!
As part of our science work, the children had a great time in our Welly Wednesday session exploring the best patterns to help our chameleons hide! They had a great understanding of camouflage by the end of the session and the chameleons were so well hidden that we actually lost some!!
We are so enthusiastic about our new topic, which is Kenya! We have learnt about the oceans and continents of the world. I am sure the children would love to sing you a song about this if you ask! We have thought about how we would travel to Kenya and what we would need to take. We have also thought about animals that we might meet if we were to go on a safari to Kenya. We enjoyed creating African animal land art in our Welly Wednesday session. We have looked at African patterns in art.
Check out our amazing buffalo that was created during Welly Wednesday!
