For our last assembly of the month we had an outdoor assembly celebrating Black History Month. Where we learned about some famous musicians and how they have influenced the music scene.
Having fun at Marlfields
In Year 3 we have been very busy looking at forces. We wanted to test whether different materials affected how far cars would travel.
We used 7 different materials; tinfoil, bubble wrap, wood, foam, corrugated card, sand paper and felt. We talked about how to ensure it was a fair test we would use the same height of ramp, the same car and the same person doing each job. Before we carried out the investigation we made a prediction about which material we thought the car would travel furthest on.
We had 6 groups and each group tested the ramp once. We combined these results to find out the overall result.
We had great fun and used lots of scientific language.
last week we celebrated anti-bullying week with a theme of ‘change starts with us’ we though about how we could make our school community a happier place for everyone.
It was lovely to see the children focusing on being kind, paying each other compliments, offering support, praising effort and SMILING! The children have made a pledge to make a small change to their behaviour in school that could make a huge difference to someones day.
What a super Friday we have had at Marlfields!
We all went on a walk around Astbury Mere to raise money for Children in Need wearing our winter coats and wellies. Coco the therapy dog came with us too, she is such a friendly dog!!
When we got back we had a hot chocolate, a cake and talked about what we had been up to. We were very tired after that so Mrs Bennett and Miss Langford had a peaceful afternoon… yeah right!
In Science club this week to link with ‘Switch off fortnight’ the children were given a challenge. The challenge was to make a circuit and then create a switch using household materials. The children used tinfoil, paper clips, split pins and card to do this. They all did a fantastic job and had fun too!
In nursery today we talked again about being kind and ways in which we can look after our friends.
The children said we could do this by;
- playing with their friends,
- having kind hands,
- looking after their friends if they are sad
- listening to their friends.
We all put our hand prints on a heart to show that we join together as a class.
