As part of our topic 'What Lies Beneath Us' Years 3 and 4 took part in a Mad Science workshop. We investigated different types of rocks and we sifted through sand and soil to find gem stones. We had a fantastic day and learnt a lot!
As part of our topic 'Footsteps Around the World', year 3 have been looking at works of art from different countries. When we were looking at British art, we chose the artist Andy Goldsworthy and used his work as the inspiration for our own collages. We created our own individual pieces of art and a whole class piece on a larger scale.
On Friday 1st May, year 3 visited the Chiltern Open air Museum. In the morning we took part in a Stone Age workshop where we set up our own settlement. We were able to do lots of different activities including building shelters, preparing pigment for cave painting and learning about how Stone Age man would have started fires and cooked food . In the afternoon, we travelled forward in time to the Iron Age where we made clay pots, prepared butter, ground grain and baked bread on an open fire. We hope you enjoy looking at some of the photographs from our trip.
On 12th January Year 3 and Year 4 visited the Science Museum to find out about inventions from the past which linked in with our new topic Incredible Inventions. We focused on 3 main areas, Secret Life of the Home, Making the Modern World and Materials. We found out what our great grandparents might have used in their homes and how they would have travelled.
When we came back to school we chose our favourite invention and researched it to create a fact file. We also thought about how it might change in the future.
We hope you enjoy looking at some of the photos of our trip.
