Autumn 2

Great North Museum 11/11/19

Year 3 have had a super day at the Great North Museum. We linked our Science and History together. We spent lots of time in the Ice Age to Iron age gallery looking at all of the amazing artefacts the museum had to show. We took part in a workshop that linked Rocks and Light, we learnt how different animals use colours to camouflage themselves and how to mimic other animals.

We were very impressed with the way the children behaved! Well done everyone.

Soil Pudding


We learnt about the layers of the soil today. Then we decided to  make our own. We used a cookie for the bedrock, marshmallows for the rocky soil, custard for the subsoil, crushed biscuit for the topsoil, green sprinkles for the grass and strawberry laces for the worms! 

It even tasted nice...smiley

Today we had a visitor to Year 3. Megan from Operation Encompass came in to talk about our feelings and how to deal with different emotions. We played some games and carried out some activities. We came up with lots of strategies to deal with feeling angry.

Stone Age Day 

 

Wow! We had an amazing day for our Stone Age Day. The children absolutely loved it and enjoyed the different activities. Throughout the day we made roundhouses, made stone age jewellery, make flint stones from soap, cooked a real stone age meal with beef and fish, baked pitta bread and had a campfire. Well done year 3!
