Curiosity Walls

To support our Science and History projects this half term we have some curiosity walls that I would like the children to fill. These walls can be filled with any work, research, drawings etc from home that links to our units this half term: Rocks and Extreme Earth.

We have had a couple of contributions so far and I am excited to see what else the children have to show off!

Rockstar Detectives

We started our new Science project on Rocks this week! In our lesson the class learnt about the three different types on rocks you can find: Igneous, Metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.

After discussing these the children be back rock star detectives and has to identify each rock based on their properties.

Once they had correctly identified each rock they had to sketch them and write sentences describing the rock based on its texture, colour and appearance.

Disaster Day

As class 3 arrived into school on Monday they were greeted with a slight shock! They discovered that over aftermath an earthquake had happened. The children were evacuated by Mr Ruffle whilst Mr Diggins ensured the classroom was safe.

After putting the classroom back together, we spent the rest of the day learning about the layers of the earth by creating clay models and drawing diagrams.

We then researched earthquakes and created fact files explaining what they are and what to do if you find yourself in an earthquake.
