Science and art week in Y3!

This week we have been extremely busy!

Not only did we have our wonderful class assembly, we have been doing lots of fun and exciting things in our art and science lessons! We tried to link most of our art and science to our current topics about Earth and natural disasters or light.

First, to link with our ‘What makes the earth angry?’ geography topic, we used straws to create blow-paint pictures of erupting volcanoes.

Next, we sculpted our own clay volcanoes and then when they had dried we painted them.

We then used water, washing up liquid, red food dye, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to create a chemical reaction and make them erupt lava!

Then, we made colourful salt dough models of the Earth. When we cut them in half we could see the Earth’s layers (inner core, outer core, mantle and crust).

We have also looked at light and shadows to link with our science topic! We have learned what it’s like to be in complete darkness, which objects are light sources and how shadows are made!

We then made our own shadow puppets and put on our very own shadow shows!
