The children spent the morning experiencing what it would have been like in a Victorian classroom, the children enjoyed writing on slate boards and getting messy using ink pens. In the afternoon, they continued learning various facts about the Victorians, looking at a range of Victorian artefacts and they also had the opportunity to make different Victorian toys. All of the children (and adults) in Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed their day.
On Wednesday 31st January 2018, Year 3 were a part of an activity filled day relating to their Science topic ‘Rocks. The children thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities that were available to them and they learnt a wide range of scientific vocabulary throughout the day.
Year 3 were given the opportunity to observe, describe and identify the properties of different rocks. They observed the effects of weathering on different types of rocks, made fossils, went on an adventure around the school groups identifying different rocks and even got the chance to test what rocks were permeable and impermeable.

“I had the best day! I didn’t know learning about rocks would be so fun!”
