In Science we were 'Rock Detectives'. We investigated the different rocks around school and their different properties.
We went to visit church for Heritage week and were inspired to create our own stained glass windows. We also thought about what peace meant and created doves to represent this .
Year 3 enjoyed a trip to the Touchstones museum. We travelled back in time to the Stone Age period where we explored how people lived. We looked at what they ate and how they hunted for food.
We discovered cave paintings inside the caves and painted our own . We also made our own clay pots .
During our Rolling stones topic, we looked at how and why Stone henge was built. We built our own models and sketched pictures using charcoal.
For our expressive arts day,year3 looked at the work of Jackson Pollock. We created our own individual pictures and worked together to create a large scale picture. We enjoyed splashing, squirting and rolling the paint around.
Our science topic was the power of force. We looked at different forces and then looked at magnets . We tested then strength of magnets by looking at how many pieces of paper a magnet could hold and by looking at how many paper clips a magnet held. We also explored the magnetic fields surrounding magnets and if they attract or repel.
KS2 were lucky to experience the use of virtual reality technology. Google expeditions came to visit us with virtual reality headsets and we experienced being underwater and seeing different types of fish up close.
