Year 3 were again fortunate to have another parent visit. This parent told the children all about her career as a Paediatric Lung Doctor. She explained how Maths and Science were used in her day to day work and how essential these subjects are to help children and young people improve their lung health. The children listened intently and asked a number of interesting questions.
The children in key stage two were lucky to have a special visit from an architect. He shared his work and how Maths and Science were an important part of his work. He helped the children to think about the different designs of buildings that are all around us. The children listened carefully and asked a variety of interesting questions. They also answered his question to them:
If you were an architect, which building would you design?
To compliment out Tudors topic, the children are in the process of making a cushion with an emblem of the Tudor Rose. They are developing their fine motor skills, patience and observation skills as they begin sewing the different colours to create their very own Tudor Rose e=patch for their cushion.
A massive thank you to our first parent who came in and spoke to the children about her fascinating career. The children listened well and were engaged throughout and asked a fair few questions, as did I! Thank you for presenting your career in a manner that was easily accessible to the class.
To conclude our Forces topic, the children worked in small groups to plan and undertake a fair test. They were testing the air resistance of different shaped parachutes. They made predictions about whether they thought the shape of their parachute would change the speed at which the parachute fell to the ground. They adhered to the health and safety instructions and completed their investigation.
