Year 3 Design and Technology

Year 3 have gathered ideas and designed a moving monster using a pneumatic system! They have also used software to represent their designs in ICT. They then had to choose their materials and construct them using techniques to build or modify them. This has taken us a few weeks but the results are tremendous!! Well done Year 3!

Working Scientifically in 6G

We carried out an investigation for our last lesson on electricity. We loved creating different circuits and we showed resilience as our circuits did not always work. We were able to become scientists as we thought about fair testing, made conclusions and found patterns.

Working Scientifically in 6W

Today in science we carried out an experiment which required us to work scientifically. Our enquiry question was: How does changing the components in a circuit affect the loudness of a buzzer. We then planned our experiment, controlling our variables, before conducting our experiment using a decibel reader on the chrome book (and one of us had a decibel reader on our smartwatch). We then wrote up our results and conclusions.

Art in 6G

Today we explored the qualities of different materials and how they might be used to enhance our ideas. Following on from on art lesson on Roy Lichtenstein and Pop Art, we were creating our own ben day dot designs. We were allowed to use a variety of materials to see which would work best. We used compasses, pencils, bubble wrap and tooth picks to create the dots but we had to make sure the dots were accurately in a triangular design- this wasn’t easy. We enjoyed becoming artists and exploring and experimenting our ideas.

6W – Positive Minds Week 3

Today we had our third Watford FC Positive Minds session and we looked at the link between our mental and physical health as well as how to cope with stressful situations. We looked at the different things we could do, depending on where we are, to help us with stressful situations we may experience. We then looked at some breathing exercises we could do, regardless of where we are.

Class 6O Working Scientifically

Today in science we planned and carried out an investigation to see how the volume of a buzzer could be affected within a series circuit. We considered a range of variables which could be changed and how we would make sure our tests were fair. We even had to use our problem solving skills to help fix our circuits when they weren’t working as expected!

Watford FC Positive Minds – 6G

Today we had a brilliant session from Jo where we looked at the correlation between physical and mental health. We looked at how our physical and mental health changes over time if we don’t look after ourselves.

Year 3 PE

The rain did not prevent us from missing out on our PE lesson. We completed Fitter Future sessions including some Just Dance to get our heart rates up!!

Enquiry-based Learning in Year 4

To introduce our new theme, ‘War in Watford’, Year 4 had the opportunity to explore some artefacts from The Watford Museum relating to World War II. We spent an afternoon examining the soldiers equipment, gas masks, articles from newspapers, first hand reports and so much more! We had so many questions and our enquiry-led learning has given us a huge opportunity to be academically fit for life!

A huge thank you to Miss Griggs, our History lead, for organising such a fun and informative afternoon.
