Rocks! Rocks! and Top Trumps in Year 3

Inspired by the work of Andrew Goldsworthy, the children collected a range of rocks,pebbles and stones from around the school grounds.

Back in class and working in small groups the children created their own temporary sculptures.

The children demonstrated scientific skill during investigation experiments.

They we investigating the properties of different types of rocks and soil. They had great fun and were very enthusiastic. they completed the scratch test and investigations to sort rocks into permeable and impermeable. Ask them to explain their findings

As part of their study Jurassic Park the children have created Dinosaur Top Trump cards in computing. With help from Mr Youson each child had created their own unique set of cards. They really enjoyed challenging each other to a game.

Finally a huge thank you for your continued support.

See you next week

Mrs McGovern
