As part of our learning in D&T, we made Mayan chocolate. The Mayans (and Aztecs) were the first to discover cacao beans and they ground them down in to a powder. They then drank this with other ingredients such as cinnamon and chilli powder. The children had to follow instructions to create their very own Mayan chocolate
Year 3 had an exciting science lesson from a company called 'Airproducts'. They want to inspire children to go in to science jobs when they grow up. Our science ambassadors used liquid nitrogen to freeze objects such as a sausage, a banana and a flower! We noticed how these objects changed due to 'speed freezing'. We also looked at fire as they set cotton buds alight to show how flames need oxygen to survive. They also showed us how gasses expand and made a balloon pop! Eventually we got to eat ice lollies, speed frozen by liquid nitrogen, and they were delicious.
Year 3 and 5 collaborative learning
Every Monday, Year 3 will take it in turns to have a turn to learn to play the drums. Here's a sneak peak of what we got up to on lesson one!
