To end our science topic of rocks we had to find the crystals which were buried inside the 3 rocks! We used equipment to chip away at the rock which revealed the crystals. The children loved this activity!
In art we have been reading the poem 'The Hippocrump' the children then responded to the poem by drawing a picture of what they thought the Hippocrump looked like. We came up with lots of individual ideas which all look fantastic!
Some of you may have noticed the incorrect spelling on this weeks list, I apologise for the mistake.
The correct spelling of the word is:
We will practice this in class before the test.
The spellings when entering Year 3 can be tricky this app should help learning the spellings a little easier in Key Stage 2. There are a range of apps called Squeebles and are created by 'KeyStageFun' who create exciting, colourful, educational games for children on the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac and Android (including Amazon’s Kindle Fire devices). We hope this helps your child in learning our Year 3 spellings! Remember to focus on the 3 highlighted ones if your child is struggling.
A big thank you to Jack from Year 6 for bringing in his rock and mineral collection. The children were really keen to find out about the rocks and crystals and wanted to ask lots of questions!
Our crystal growing has gone to plan and today when checking our crystal it had crystallised and this was our final product. We were really pleased with our crystal growing!
In History Y3 have been learning all about the stone age. Mr Lannigan is a keen historian and archaeologist and he kindly loaned us some of his stone age treasures for us to look at and talk about. It was very interesting. Looking at the elk and woolly mammoth teeth made us realise just how big the creatures were that the stone age hunters had to contend with!!
