Science

Here are a variety of experiments that you might like to have a go at while you are at home. Mrs Littlewood and I have already seen a couple of super volcanoes and I have made a sundial - I'm not very accurate at telling the time with it yet though! 

This half term we should be learning about forces and magnets.  We have included a unit of work for this which you could dip into but you might not have all the equipment needed.  Go to https://www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/science/year-3-science/forces-and-magnets-amazing-magnets/ and have a look.  Perhaps you could look around your house and find how magnets and forces are used in the home?

After half term we will be learning about plant reproduction.  What is growing in your garden or the local area when you go for a walk?  How many different varieties of plants can you name in your garden?  Perhaps you could have a go at sketching some that you find and we could guess what kind of plants they are?  If you have some seeds at home you could also try to grow your own; we'd love to see the results!

There are some super science websites for you to have a look at too.  We like Maddie Moate's Youtube channel.  Go to: https://www.youtube.com/user/maddiemoate.
