How can we fix a flower so that water can reach the flower?

The children have been learning about how plants grow and how water is transported through the stem. The children were given flowers with broken stems and different materials that they could use to try and fix them. Once the children had finished, two flowers were put into food dye to see if it was transported through the stem to the flower.

Black History Day

Year Three learned about Mary Seacole as part of Black History day.  Using pictures of Mary Seacole, the children worked with their partners and took part in a rally robin activity to name some professions that they thought Mary Seacole might have belonged to.

Buraidah thought she might have been a doctor, Boshra thought she might have been a president and Adam thought she might have been a shop keeper.

After this, the children read information about Mary Seacole and worked out how long ago she must have lived when looking at dates. The children then fit important moments in her life onto a timeline.
