Year 3 became urban sketchers this week. Four artists joined the children to help them with their artwork, showing them different techniques and helping them to see the world around them in a different way. The results were amazing. The artwork produced by the children will now go on display in school on the 5th and 6th of June. More details of this exhibition will be announced soon.
How fossils are formed.
3S have been learning about how fossils are formed- we had a go at making them in a very short time frame!
Millions of years ago dinosaurs roamed the land.
The dinosaurs died and fell into the ground, earth and rock covered the remains.
The dinosaur’s flesh and bones rotted away, leaving a natural mould.
Over a long period of time, small rock and mineral particals filled the natural mould and took the shape of the dinosaur bones.
Eventually, the earth erodes away and the fossil is exposed. Geologists find the fossils and study them to find out more about our natural history.
Our Year 3 children have all been promoted to Geologists for our topic this half term- Rocks and Fossils.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be updating you with our environmental investigations and their findings.
This week, we have been finding out just exactly what soil is as well as discovering that our school ground is home to loamy, clay and sandy types of soil. Take a look at our pictures and take the test below to find out more!
On Friday, Year 3 got a taste of what life was like during the Stone Age. They used paints made from natural ingredients to create modern-day cave paintings, made their own spears to go hunting, fashioned some Stone Age jewellery and made shelters fit to withstand wind and rain.
We all had a fantastic day full of surprises!
Some of the children in Year 3 have been challenged by a Christmas elf to complete festive maths activities. The elf gave them puzzles and riddles and our children did so well to use their knowledge and skills to solve them. Here are some of the activities the elf put to them…
Year 3 English classes have been using their senses to write beautiful fruit shape poems. We enjoyed feeling, smelling and tasting a variety of fruit to provoke our imagination and write poetry about our favourite fruit. We’re very impressed with the results!
