Sailing Through The Stormy Sea

Today children tested their Viking Longboats. Children predicted whether their Longboat would float or sink based on the properties of the materials used. Here are few examples of Year 3’s Viking Longboats sailing across the sea.

Can you name the properties of the materials you used?  Do you remember the name of the upwards force that keeps you afloat? What does buoyant mean?

Thank you to all the parents and carers that helped their child in creating their Longboat.

Archaeologist In The Making

Yesterday Year 3 became archaeologists and discovered what the Vikings ate through examining their faeces.

Children learnt that Vikings ate fish as they travelled along the sea it was a local source. Also through examining Viking poo children learnt that Vikings ate many berries.

Can you remember the scientific word for poo?

 

Vicious Vikings

This week Year 3 have had a fun packed week exploring their topic, ‘Vicious Vikings’. In ‘Computing’ children worked together to create a title page using PowerPoint. Here are a few examples.

In PSCHE children problem solved a variety of scenarios deciding the best solution. Children discussed where they can get help at home and school if they have any worries or concerns.

As part of our ‘Big Write’ children wrote a diary entry based on the Vikings invasion at Lindisfarne. To get a feel of how they Vikings and Monks felt, children role played the invasion.
