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.
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...
Here are the spellings for this week-

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.
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!
Welcome to Autumn 2
The children have settled back into school perfectly! We are continuing with the Stone Age to Iron Age. We can't wait for our trip to the Great North Museum on Monday 11/11/19. The children will need to be in school uniform and bring a packed lunch. We will be back to school in time for hometime.
