Are male skulls bigger than female skulls?

Measuring our Skulls - In Action!

Still image for this video

As part of our investigation into the human body and all that comes with it, we had a question: even though we all have the same bones, are some people's bones bigger than others? We decided to investigate whether there was a difference between female skulls and male skulls in terms of size. We measured our own heads using measuring tapes.

We have been learning la fruta with Mr Pastor - we even got up and had a song and dance!!

New PE Kits!

How cool are we! We've gotten new school PE kits - we can't wait to put them to good use with Mr Bridges on Friday!!

In Year 3, we are learning about really grown-up concepts in writing - like personification and similes! We used our colouring pencils on these poems to highlight descriptive language, interesting adjectives and personification.

You’ve heard about oil spills on the news, you’ve read about the cleanup in the newspaper but did you know you could learn about ocean pollution right at home or in the classroom? This big idea struck us hard and we wanted to find out; why are oil spills so hard to clean up? Why are they so harmful? Both classes, 3H and 3F, joined together to investigate how we can look after our environment and help combat climate change. We learned how difficult it is to remove fossil fuels, such as oil, from our oceans using different resources. Have a look to see how we did!

Football skills in the SUN!

We know that football is an extremely important sport to lots of people around the UK. We know some rules of the game, but we wanted to develop our skills in football to really improve. We used our spatial awareness and developed passing skills, which really helped with team work as well!

Our first day back! It's been so exciting to see all our friends again. We got straight into our work and used different materials to make numbers. Look! We our now working with hundreds. Wow!
