WELCOME TO THE Marvellous macaws

Welcome to The Marvellous Macaws! We are class 8 and our teacher is Mrs Scattergood. We chose to be Marvellous Macaws as it is our favourite endangered species . We also learnt that there are many different types of Macaws such as the Green Winged Macaw, Blue and Yellow Macaw and the Scarlet Macaw! We are lucky enough to have four teaching assistants to help us with our learning: Mrs Parker, Mrs Hanley, Ms Youel and Mrs Young.

Keep checking back to see all the exciting things we have been getting up to!

19th September 2017- National Railway Museum

Today, Year 3 visited the National Railway museum in York. We had a fun packed, non-stop day! We took part in two workshops 'Rocket to Bullet' and 'Building Bridges'. We looked at how trains had evolved over the years, and volunteered in lots of different experiments all about force. We also looked at bridges and which were the best structures. We learnt the words 'Gravity', 'Friction', 'Compression', 'Tension' and 'Equilibrium'. Can you remember what they each mean? Look at our photographs of our day. 

12th September 2017- Science Week

This week has been SCIENCE week, we have been learning about forces and magnets. We completed an investigation using toy cars and ramps. We tested different surfaces to see which material created the most friction. It was great fun and it taught us a lot about forces. Towards the end of the week, we are going to be investigating which materials are magnetic and non-magnetic.
