How does water move in plants?
In Science this week, we have been investigating how water is transported through plants so we conducted a simple experiment that involved food colouring, water and paper towels. Firstly, we watched a video to demonstrate the experiment and then we wrote our own predictions about what we thought might happen. Then we wrote our method which would tell someone else how we set up and carried out the experiment. Finally, we watched our experiment to observe what happened and wrote our conclusions. We noticed how quickly the water travelled through the paper towel, just like it would if it was a plant stem.
Which countries are in South America?
As part of our geography homework, we each created a map of South America that show where each country in the continent is, what their capital cities are, which oceans surround the continent and where the equator is.
Our vehicle display board is slowly taking shape with all of our new learning. So far we have learnt about who discovered the Maya ruins, what plants need to grow successfully, the parts of a plant and their jobs, which countries have rainforests and lots more!
We have had a very festive visitor join us in Year 3, we welcomed Twinkle the elf who has come all the way from the North Pole just to spend December with us! We are hoping that Twinkle is going to behave himself as we don't want him getting up to mischief!
