We are learning all about plants this term. We have learnt about the parts of the plant and their function. We tried to demonstrate the movement of water up the stem of the plant by using celery placed in water dyed with food colouring. Unfortunately, as with many of the best science experiments, it didn’t work! This did give us a good opportunity to evaluate our investigation, identify what might have gone wrong and what we could do better next time! At least our sunflowers are coming along nicely!
As part of the curriculum in Year 3, the children and staff work alongside the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings on the Pearl of the Sea Project. This is a year long project, the children visit the Gallery in term 1 and then term 3. Both times they will work with a local artist. Then in term 4 and 5 the children make their own work which is then displayed at the gallery in term 6.
