In Science we have been learning about rocks and soils. We were sent our very own pet pebble from Newcastle University. We had to weigh it, measure it and classify it. After that, we were able to decorate it and make it into our very own pet pebble. Brilliant job Year 3.

In the afternoon we had another treat! We went into the Year 5/6 area and worked with a visitor from Chartwells. We learnt about the different foods that school children eat all around the World. Then we got to make and eat our own wraps. Some of us tried some lovely healthy dressings on our wraps. Yum Yum!

Week beginning 24/9/18

Today we started to read our new book 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King. We looked at the front cover and made some predictions about what we thought the book might be about. We then decided to go into our Forest school area to see if we could find any food or materials that a Stone Age person could use. When we got there, we found Mr Brown was there with a fire! He invited us to toast some marshmallows with him - what a treat! We were then very surprised to have a visit from Stig! He had been out hunting mammoths in the woods when he came across our campfire, he was very happy to see us and tried to talk to us in his language. He also tried a marshmallow and seemed to love them. We were having a super time, until the school buzzer sounded, we think this noise might have frightened Stig, as he ran off. We are hoping to see him again.
