To start of our Topic of Tolerance, we looked at how we can be welcoming to one another. We thought back to our first days at Newhall Juniors and how we felt during those daunting first few days!
We then created a pocket poster full of notes from us to the new Year 3 children that will be coming up in September. We hope they will feel more welcome once they have read our encouraging words!
So for our first investigation we were looking at air resistance. We compared parachutes made out of different materials to see which material created the most air resistance. We each predicted which material we thought would resist the most and then tested them against a stopwatch.
The result was that the plastic bag! Here is Alice demonstrating how we observed it fall!
Today we had the pleasure of watching 3F's performance of The Tempest. They have been working with Maria this term.
The children really enjoyed seeing Maria again and watching the performance. They asked some brilliant questions to some of the characters that were being 'hotseated'.
World Book Day was a huge success. The whole school made a fantastic effort to raise awareness of just how important books are. Here are some of 3M's contributions!
