Lets learn about fossils!
In Science we have been learning about Fossils and how they are formed. We became Palaeontologists, just like the famous Palaeontologist Mary Anning, and uncovered many hidden fossils which we identified.
The Secrets of Stonehenge!
We have been discussing the Bronze Age in Topic. We focused today on why Stonehenge could have been built and explored the secrets it may hold through drama. We then made a class model using clay.
We have been observing different types of rocks using magnifying glasses and discussing what we notice about them - the colours, texture, and any patterns or sparkly, crystal bits. Year 3 even had a go at classifying some of the rocks with their observations.
We have got off to a good start in our history topic. We have looked at cave paintings, how they were made and what was drawn during this period. Have a look at some of our work below.

The children will be provided with a home reading book, weekly spellings and a homework grid from which they can choose their activity to share with the class each week.
