The Stone Age

This term in humanities year 3 has been learning all about the Stone Age. We first looked at how long ago the Stone Age was by creating a human timeline with toilet paper. All the children were shocked to see how long ago the Stone Age first started. We have also looked closely at how Stone Age people hunted and gathered food when shops didn’t exist. After researching the different tools pupils were given the chance to design their own tool and make it out of clay. Our next step is to add sticks and rope to complete their Stone Age tool.  I know the children will be so excited to show them to you when they are complete and tell you what their tool is design for.

Horton Kirby

This term, year 3 visited Horton Kirby for a fun exploration of the Stone Age. They tried their hands at cave painting, hunting using stone age weapons, and even lit fires using flint. While many said they enjoyed the archaeological dig best, dressing up in costumes from a range of historical periods was another firm favourite. This was a great hands-on way to learn about the Stone Age.

National History Museum

Y3 had a marvellous day out on the 13th March. They went to the Natural History Museum to investigate geological forces from deep within the Earth using interactive demonstrations. The children made a real earthquake and poured lava and have gained the skills and knowledge to save a town from catastrophe. The show they took part of highlighted the awesome power of our planet’s natural forces and demonstrated the importance and challenge of natural disaster prediction. Great fun was had by all!

Y3 trip to the National Gallery

Y3 had a fantastic day out on Friday 3rd of February.  Their visit to the National Gallery proved to be fun, informative and thought-provoking. During their guided tour the children discussed various painting techniques, the use of primary, secondary and complementary colours and the painter’s choice capturing specific objects and moments of life.

The children were truly inspired and amazed and they cannot wait for their next Art lesson to use the new skills and knowledge they had gained from this wonderful experience.

Volcanoes

Our topic in Science this term is Rocks and soils. The children have learnt about the different kind of rocks and the never-stopping rock cycle and to understand this even better we made sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks out of dark and milk chocolate. First they  layered dark and milk chocolate ‘sediments’ to make sedimentary rocks, then applied heat and pressure of their fingertips to turn them to metamorphic rocks and at the end they  put their ‘rocks’ into hot lava (boiling water) to form igneous rocks.

In Geography Y3 has been learning about volcanoes and how they work.  To consolidate our learning we have recreated the diagram of a volcano in our computing lesson using the 2PaintaPicture programme.  We had lots of fun experimenting with the different tools.
