What a rockin' way to start off Autumn 2!
We are coming towards the end of our topic rocks where we have done and learnt so much! From comparing different rocks and crystals, investigating the internal structure of the earth and exploring how fossils are made we have had great fun!
Most recently we were learning about the three types of rock, sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. So we could visualise how the different types of rocks are formed, we made each type out of chocolate!
We were able to tell that sedimentary rocks are formed when lots of layers build up and are compressed together, metamorphic rocks are made through both high pressure and heat, and igneous rocks are made when molten rock cools.
Friday 13th October - Brackenhurst Stone Age Trip
Wow! What a busy day! After a coach trip over to Brackenhurst Year 3 enjoyed a fantastic, fun filled day! From the moment we arrived our leader for the day had us all laughing and taught us lots of things about the Brackenhurst site on our way to the woods! Once we reached the woods our first job in our groups was to build our shelters for the day and to put on our Stone Age outfits. From there we took part in a carousel of activities. These included:
We also got to eat our lunches outside in the woods under the shelters we made!
Both Mr Jones and Mrs Rogers look forward to reading the recounts of the trip that the children will be writing next week!
