Hi 3C,

This week in Science we continued our topic of Rocks, Soils and Fossils.

 

We tested the properties of Marble, Slate, Granite, Gabbro, Chalk and Sandstone.

By trying to scratch into these stones using a copper coin, we tested the durability.

When we placed the rocks into a tub of water, we could see if the rock had a high density (it sank) or a low density (it floated).

We also tried pouring water onto the rocks to see if the water would pass through. Water passed through none of them and we found they were NOT permiable.

Finally, we made observations about the feel and texture of the rocks.

 

Find some rocks in your garden, local park or green space. Make sure you give them a good clean before using them in our investigation!

Test their properties like we did in class.

You can ask yourself the questions:

  • Do they float or sink? (High or low density)
  • Do they let water pass through them? (Permeability)
  • Do they break easily? (Durability)

Share your finds with us in the comments please.

 

Next week we will be learning about fossils and retelling the rare and fascinating process of fossilisation.

See you soon, Geologists!

Hi 3C,

This week in Geography we looked at rivers in the UK.

Some of these included:

Thames, Wye, Tyne, Trent, Clyde, Ply.

 

Most famously, London is home to the River Thames.

However, there are lots of smaller rivers in South London where our school is located!

These rivers are called:

River Ravensbourne,

River Quaggy,

River Effra,

River Peck

River Neckinger.

 

Which one is closest to this school?

Try to find them on google maps and see how close they are.

If you find the closest one to our school you could wander down and see it on the weekend!

Happy river-finding!

Famously, he used elephant dung in his art.

Amazing Poetry

This week in writing we are writing a poem about the beautiful sky.

We are looking at key features of poetry such as alliteration, rhymes and sensory vocabulary.

Can you remember the 5 senses?

Take some time to sit still, taking deep breaths.

You can watch and listen to this video to tune in to your senses:

 

Try to use some interesting and exciting adjectives to describe what you can

SEE

SMELL

FEEL

TASTE

HEAR

 

Maybe you could try to use some alliteration?

For example, I can hear loud laughter. I can taste my delicious dinner.

 

Tune in to the wonderful world!

Hi 3C

Tomorrow we will be celebrating World Mental Health Day.

One way we can practice mindfulness is by ‘Taking Notice.’

There is so much to pay attention to all around us, all the time. Even in a city, you can enjoy singing birds, trees in bloom, even winter bumblebees. So, look up or out of the window and take notice of all the beautiful and wonderful things everywhere.

Learn all about British trees all below.

Relax,

Carmen
