A red pair of tweezers like this has gone missing in P3B. Its brothers and sisters are really missing it and would like to find it so we don’t have to share them. Any information on the whereabouts of the red pair of tweezers should be directed to Mrs Dundas. Thank you!
We are having great fun thinking like scientists. Today we got some fizzy water and put sultanas in it.
We observed the sultanas. We saw them dance, jump, and float up and down.
They were covered in fizzy bubbles. The fizzy bubbles were full of gas.
We are learning that water can be a liquid, a solid and a gas. But the gas is steam and it is too hot for us to have in the classroom. So we looked at some gas we could see safely.
Our very first day in P3B we went outside with ice and water and we compared them. What a lot of similarities and differences we noticed. We are VERY OBSERVANT scientists and we are learning to compare.
We have been finding out about Egyptian Houses and comparing them to our own houses this week. We found out that Egyptian Houses had flat roofs and they would often sleep on the roof to keep cool in the hot weather. The houses often had stone gate posts and they were made of mud bricks which had been dried in the sun.
We designed our own Lego Egyptian Houses which showed all the features we had learned about.
We have been doing some Drama about Egyptian Gods. Last week, some of us pretended to be Gods and Mummies. We played a game where everyone else had to try to creep up on us without being heard. When the Mummies and Gods said ‘Zap’, we all had to stay VERY still. It was really tricky to stand like a statue but we all had fun!
We enjoyed finding out about the Egyptian coffin that Pharaohs were buried in. The coffin was called a Sarcophagus. We learned that the patterns on a sarcophagus were symmetrical which means they were the same on both sides. We worked really hard to make our pictures symmetrical and we are very proud of them!
We had to work together and use our problem solving skills in our ‘Marshmallow Challenge’ We had to try to build the tallest tower we could using only toothpicks and mini marshmallows. First, we drew a plan then we set to work. It was quite tricky but lots of fun!
We are having lots of fun finding out about Ancient Egyptians for our topic. We enjoyed learning all about pyramids and painted lovely 3D pyramids with sand in the paint to add texture.
We were fascinated to find out that there were lots of secret passageways, trap doors and booby traps inside the pyramids to protect the treasure from grave robbers. We drew our own pyramids and labelled all the different traps. We then shared them with a learning partner. We don’t think any robbers would be able to get to our treasure!
