Greek debate

March 27th, 2015 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

In literacy this week we have been researching whether it is better to live in Ancient Greece or modern day Greece. We have been collecting information to form an argument for or against living in Ancient Greece.

What facts did you find out about living in Ancient Greece?

After researching Greece and forming our sides of the debate we were joined by Chestnut class for the final debate.

Overall year 3 decided that it would be better to live in modern Greece rather than live in Ancient Greece. Do you agree?

Making Shadows

March 27th, 2015 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

In science we have been looking at how we see.

Our eyes see light from light sources reflecting off different objects. We see shadows when light is blocked.

 

On Thursday Cherry class ventured outside to make shadows using things that we found around the classroom.

What did you use? 

We were testing the different objects to see how much light shone through it.

What words did we use to describe how much we could see through an object?

We can use our hands to make some fun and interesting shadows, can you make any animal shadows using your hands?

eclipse eclipse its on friday 20 march

March 20th, 2015 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Today in science week there was a total eclipse.

An eclipse is when the moon blocks the sun and there is only a little bit of light. It is like the moon is finding someone to talk to and he stops at the sun to have a chat and blocks the sun from talking to earth for a very short time. That is what an eclipse is.

If you look directly at the eclipse you could do some really bad damage to your eyes so you need to make a pinhole projector like Cherry class did to be able to look at the eclipse.

This week, as you probably know, is National British Science Week! Things have been getting very ‘sciencey’ indeed at St. Augustine’s School!

Cherry Class have began an experiment to see whether we could use the sun to cook marshmallows using a solar oven.

We have designed and made our our solar ovens ready to see if the sun can cook our marshmallows tomorrow. Fingers crossed the sun will shine after the eclipse!

A partial solar eclipse will be visible from the UK from 08:30 to 10:30 on Friday 20 March 2015 – a school day!
More than 80% of the Sun will be covered by the Moon.

Weather depending, we are hoping to be able to see the solar eclipse… Fingers crossed!

Remember the the sun is still very damaging to out eyes even in an eclipse, so we mustn’t look at it without the correct protective eyewear. Sunglasses aren’t strong enough so we need to make sonmething to be able to see the eclipse with.

What we could use to see the eclipse?
