This half term, Year 3 have been looking at Animals including Humans. They started off the topic by learning about healthy eating, a balanced diet and the importance of the different food groups.
The children then learned what a healthy plate of food should look like and what kinds of food adventurers might eat to keep their bodies healthy and strong.
The children have also recently moved onto vertebrates and invertebrates, and the build up of the human body. During one of their lessons this week, the children got to explore the different muscles we have in our body through targeted exercises. It was a very fun and interesting way of exploring the location of different muscles, their size and purpose. The children were asked to mark down exactly which muscle they felt working during each activity.
Last week, all of Eldon Primary School had the fantastic opportunity to take part in a Water workshop about our sewage systems in London. It was a brilliant opportunity to learn about the importance of water conservation and the draining systems in our area.
It was an interesting session which included some great ideas on how to use our rain water within London. At the end of the session, the children even got to observe what happens when we flush a toilet.
In science we have been looking at which solids can dissolve in water. We have learnt two key scientific words: Soluble and Insoluble.
This half term we have been looking closely at different types of materials. This lesson we investigated if all liquids were the same and if the had the same level of viscosity. This was messy and fun!
