Stories of volcanic eruptions!

As part of our Tremors topic, we are learning about Volcanoes. We are using this to inspire our English and will be writing stories set in Pompeii during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

How will you describe the volcanic eruption?

How would you have felt if you lived in Pompeii at the time?

An exciting start to Year 3…

Ash and Aspen have had an exciting start to the year with our new topic ‘Tremors’. As part of our memorable experience we used spaghetti and marshmallows to try and create model buildings that could withstand an earthquake! In Science we have been exploring the fascinating world of rocks and have been using this to inspire our writing in English.

Polish Food Tasting

On Thursday 22nd June, it was Cultural day across LMPS! In Ash class we enjoyed learning about Poland and getting to try some delicious food. A big thank you to  Mrs Bombik for coming to talk to our class and bringing in some tasty authentic polish food! What was your favourite  thing you tasted? 

Balloon Rockets!

In Year 3, we have been testing the power of air in Science and DT. We made balloon rockets and investigated how we could make our rockets travel further. To make a balloon rocket you need: a straw, some string, a balloon, sellotape and 2 sturdy places to tie your string to! It was a really fun experiment and it was very funny trying to blow up the balloons!

An inspiring visit…

Today we are lucky enough to be visited by Sue Hampton, an author! We had an interesting assembly and also participated in an inspirational workshop! During the visit, we learnt more about the condition alopecia as well as learning some tips and hints on how to become fantastic story writers! What was your favourite part? 

Testing Time…

In Maths, we have been looking at telling the time and recording and comparing time. In this lesson we had to time how long it took us to do different activities. We mostly did this in seconds but some activities took over a minute! Can you remember how many seconds in a minute?




CSI: Lawford Mead

This half term, our topic is Plants! In this lesson we had to be crime scene investigators when some poor plants were attacked!

The plants were no longer alive but why? What does each part of the plant do? How does each part keep the whole plant alive? What new thing did you find out?
