Grade 3s sussing out “Seisoene”

Sometimes teaching in the same class, lesson after lesson, can become a bit repetitive. So what better way to start our new term, than with a specialised teaching lesson! The excitement that followed after telling the Grade 3s that they would be moving to the other classes to learn was something to behold!

After watching a scientific video, we learned about each section and its function, followed by the labelling of a scientific drawing.
