By Mrs. Thompson & Miss Mercer’s 3/4 Class
This term for science in Mrs. Thompson and Miss Mercer’s year 3/4 class we are focusing on life and earth. One thing we have been incorporating into our science lessons is technology. We have been using iPads to watch informational videos, scanning QR codes in the STEM science books to complete activities and answer questions and improving our researching skills, by researching certain topics within life and earth science.
From this, students are doing a great job of taking control of their own learning. Flexible seating has also been extremely beneficial this term. It allows students the space and seating to be able to work in small groups or pairs, which is something we do regularly during science.
