Class 3 visited Southwark’s Reuse and Recycling centre. We learned so much about what happens to household waste once it is taken to the centre. We had a tour of the centre in hard hats, safety goggles and hi vis jackets. What do you know about recycling? We took a quiz at the start of our visit and scored 52%. By the end of our visit, we increased our score to 87%! Well done Class 3.

Kim visited Class 3 for our Science lesson today. We learned about what a greenhouse is and why it is used. We also found out what germination and propagate mean.
We asked lots of interesting scientific questions:
How much sunlight does a plant need to grow?
How much water does a plant need?
What’s the most unusual plant you’ve grown?
How do weeds grow? Why do we need to get rid of weeds?
How long does it take for a plant to grow?
What happens if you put too much soil in?
Why do plant pots need to have holes in?
Why are worms good for the soil?
We even asked:
How do you know so much about gardening?
Then we all went to the greenhouse to plant some seeds. We will keep our eye on them to see how they grow over the half term.
A big thank you to Kim for helping us and teaching us so much!

Class 3 were inspired by young rapper Jaden Smith to write their own raps. We thought carefully about repetition, rhythm and rhyme. Watch this video to see the finished raps!

Class 3 shared the super stories that they wrote during Book Week with Nursery. We also helped to act out some stories that children in Nursery had written.

A massive thank you to Mary (dental hygiene expert, school governor and Max’s mum) who visited Class 3 to support our Science learning about Teeth and Eating. We discussed how to keep our teeth healthy, looked at real examples of different types of teeth and learned how to floss. We went away with goodie bags too! Now you know why Class 3′s teeth look so healthy…

What a fun day! Class 3 learned so much about the rainforest and the animals who live there at London Zoo. We were fantastic rainforest explorers and found out about how animals are adapted to this environment. We also visited animals in other habitats around the zoo. Thank you to the staff at the zoo and to our parent helpers Rhonda, Mayomi and Nicola.
