Welcome to Class 3
Our teachers for 2023/24 are Mrs Procter and Mrs Donson
Mrs Lupton and Mrs Dennet are our teaching assistants.
Our first topic this year is ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’.
We had a fantastic trip to Stonehenge to help us with our topic learning. We explored the exhibition and enjoyed discovering some of the secrets of the incredible ancient monument.
Science: Rocks, soil and fossils
Linked with our Stone Age topic, we have enjoyed being geologists this term. So far we have asked these questions: What is the difference between natural and man-made rocks? How are rocks made? What is sand? If we re-built Stonehenge, which rock would we use? How are fossils formed?
We have been very excited to investigate the answers to these questions and present our learning in different ways. One of the highlights was making fossils using dog treats as our creature’s bones!
