Stone Age Discovery

On 1st October, Year 3 went on a Stone Age visit to Ferry Meadows. During this time we made Stone Age huts; which involved moving huge branches as a team. We also learnt to make fire using a fire striker and collected lots of different natural materials to create artwork, just like a Stone Age person would of done. Last but not least, we explored the natural surroundings and discovered all different types of bugs and minibeasts.  We had a brilliant day!

The year 3 children have been studying Rangoli Art, it’s history, colour and pattern.
Whilst we enjoyed being in the studio using traditional salt techniques it was much more fun to be in the sunshine working with chalks on a much bigger scale.

On Thursday 10th of May, Year 3 went to Cambridge to visit both the Science Centre and the Botanical Gardens. In the gardens they enjoyed strolling through a variety of different areas; the scents’ garden was a favourite – one of the plants smelled like lemon sherbet! They had time to do some sketching of plants or leaves they’d seen – some even drew the beautiful fountain we came across.

At the Science Centre the children took part in a workshop called ‘You are what you eat’. First they arranged foods into food groups that they recoginised, then we focused on protein. Using beads as an example, they explored proteins and how they are made up of different amino acids.

The children and adults all had a wonderful day and the children represented the school exceptional well. Thank you again to our volunteers on the day who helped us make this trip the success it was.​
