Over the last few weeks Year 3 have been conducting Science investigations linked to our Healthy Humans Topic. We have used so many different Scientific skills such as planning, predicting, measuring, observing and recording.
Firstly, the children investigated whether the size of your hand span has an effect on how far you can throw.
The class then investigated the affects that different liquids can have on our teeth. Our Associate Teachers worked on the investigation with the pupils using eggs and a range of different liquids. Eggs were used because the shell protects the egg inside in a similar way to how the enamel protects our teeth. It was really interesting to see which liquids can do the most damage to teeth!
We were also very lucky to have three different sessions of Tri-golf during April. It was lots of fun and the children learned lots of new skills!
Year 3 took part in a whole afternoon full of energetic activities on Thursday 17th March for Sports Relief 2016. We had lots of fun!
On March 4th we all dressed up as our favourite character from a book to celebrate World Book Day 2016!
As our Spring Topic is 'Location Location' we have been out and about exploring our locality of Northop Hall. We have conducted traffic surveys to see how busy the village is. We also spent a day in the school's forest/conservation area looking to see what types of animals and plants are there.
We have created our own bonfire night artwork.
Year 3 had a very special guest come into school on October 14th.
Kelly, who is a Veterinary Nurse at Gatehouse Veterinary Centre in Wrexham came to talk to the children about looking after rabbits.
The children started things off by holding a 'Q and A session' where they asked Kelly a range of very interesting questions that they had prepared in class the previous day.
They found out what it is like to work in a Veterinary Centre, the types of animals that Kelly has treated, as well as some extra information about Biscuit.
They were shown the correct way to handle a rabbit.
Learned all about the parts of rabbits bodies and the functions of these parts. They worked in small groups to match and label the parts of a rabbit.
The children then learned all about the types of foods that Biscuit can and can't eat.
Biscuit Arrives at School
On Wednesday 7th October we said a long awaited 'Welcome' to a new member of Northop Hall CP School!
Biscuit the rabbit finally made an arrival.
Biscuit has had a few days to get used to all of the new smells, sounds and sights and now the children have begun to take on the responsibilities of feeding, playing, grooming and cleaning out Biscuit's hutch. Over the next few months, we will be slowly building up our skills to do these tasks independently. I have to say that the class seem to be very excited about this!
