Thank you so much for supporting the class during their mass this week when the theme was rocks. The children thoroughly enjoyed performing 'Jesus is the Rock' and we hope that you enjoyed viewing their wonderful work in class afterwards. If you couldn't join us, we shared your child's work with staff. All were rewarded for their hard work and efforts. Look out for the next homework letter, as we are making plans to do some landscape architecture for our next around the world day. The country studied will be on Japan. We will need enough shoe box lids for each child so please do try to send in any you may have.
Rock and Roll Dance - Year Three Cross-Curricular Learning
Science- Rocks and soils
In Science, we spent the last few weeks learning about the different types of rocks we see all around us, how these rocks are formed and what they may be used for. We also had great fun finding out what fossils are. We even had a go at making replica fossils ourselves!
Around the World Day- Japan
As part of our 'Around the World ' day, we looked at a traditional Japanese story and created our own version of the story, had a go at sketching cherry blossom trees (which are widely found in Japan during spring), solved a variety of sudoku puzzles and enjoyed making an origami bookmark.
We had a wonderful day at Hyde Hall where the children were able to carry out a variety of activities involving rocks and soils.
