Here are a few photographs of our science investigations into separating materials using sieving, filtering magnetic attraction and evaporation. The class learnt lots about these processes and have completed some follow-up work.
I have planned an exciting investigation to carry out as part of British science week. Before we can do it, what can you find out about the processes of separating materials by evaporation, filtering, sieving or using magnets? You can find some information at the link below and play the game and try the quiz. Good luck!
We have been doing lots of investigations lately. Last week we completed our work on dissolving and next week, as part of National Science Week, we will be carrying out some sieving and filtering investigations to separate materials.We found out that sugar, coffee, flour and salt dissolved but sand and rice did not. We also found out that the higher the temperature of the water, the quicker sugar would dissolve in it. I wonder what we will discover when we do our filtering and sieving work?
Class 3 are always looking to improve their dictionary skills and have learnt about the quartiles of the dictionary and how to find their way around a dictionary using the headings. We linked this to our work on Romans to have a race to find words in the dictionary that were of Roman origin, such as spectator, stadium, sandal, mosaic and aqueduct. We also practise our dictionary skills during guided reading.
We had lots of fun yesterday making bookmarks, doing our costume parade, listening to podcasts, doing our readathon and guessing which characters we all were.
Here is the link to the World book day podcasts and games we have tried today.
I was out and about in Hull yesterday and popped into Hull and East Riding Museum to take some photographs of the Roman exhibits. The museum is free and well worth a visit.
Have a look at the photographs of some real Roman mosaics excavated from Roman properties in the local area, the example of Roman central heating and a Roman bath house.
Websites to learn about the Roman army, why they invaded and why they were successful.
If you are looking for somewhere to visit over the half-term holiday why not visit the Hull and East Riding Museum in High Street Hull? You can see a Roman bath house and some stunning Roman mosaics as well as lots of other exciting exhibits and it’s free.
There are lot of things going on in Hull at the moment linked Hull UK city of Culture 2017 so it is a good time to visit.Our Summer term theme in KS2 will be the local area around us and we hope to link more closely to City of Culture events and exhibitions so why not get ahead and visit now!

Following on from instruction writing on how to make a Roman road, a reading comprehension on Roman roads and making an edible Roman road, class 3 now bring you……
A Roman road made with the type of materials Romans would have used hundreds of years ago; sand, earth, gravel, pebbles and flat stones.
