The Power of Reading in literacy supports this desire to dissect and understand books in more depth, with drama playing a role in learning.

The Natural History Museum

Year 3 went on a trip to London to visit the Natural History Museum.

They have been busy learning about earthquakes and volcanoes. So, Mr Taylor arranged for them to experience volcanoes and earthquakes in an action packed science show.

They learned how geological forces from deep within the Earth make a real earthquake and how lava erupts from volcanoes.

Part of the show is to explain about the structure of the Earth and tectonic plates which is what they have been studying in class.

Egyptian Day

In Year 3, they have been busy learning about Egypt and it is a fascinating subject.

Today everyone came to school dressed in the Egyptian theme from Mummies to Pharaohs.

The day started by learning about Mummies and why they performed the ritual of Mummification. Then it was time for a bit of writing but not the normal way. No today was all Egyptian so it was Hieroglyphs, the formal writing used in Ancient Egypt. I'm sure you have seen it before? It consists of symbols to represent the alphabet.

In the afternoon, Year 3 created necklaces and a cartouche pendant using paint.

Tomorrow will feel rather boring in comparison.
