Chocolate Rocks, by Miss Young

Date: 3rd Oct 2017 @ 3:15pm

Today the year 3 children have been learning all about rocks and how they are formed. We have used 3 different types of chocolate to help us make some chocolate rocks.

The children layered together dark, white and milk chocolate and applied pressure to form a sedimentary rock. The chocolate was then heated in the children's hands so the layers merged together to form a metamorphic rock. The layers were now mixed in and unclear to see. Mrs Ashford-Eaton and Miss Young then put their chocolate into boiling water and it melted. We then took it out and let it solidify again to form an igneous rock.

Stone Age goings on..., by Miss Young

Date: 2nd Oct 2017 @ 8:40pm

Today Miss Young and Mrs Ashford-Easton made a strange discovery in the school woods. It looked like someone had been living there! The children put on their wellies and began their adventure into the woods to see what was going on.

 

On the way into the woods, the children noticed that the apples from the school grounds seemed to have gone and so had some of the nettles...had they been foraged? As the journey took us deeper into the woods, we saw something in the clearing ahead...it was an animal skin that looked like it had been left to dry.

 

To our surprise, we then found a frag,net of a woolly mammoth tusk! Who on earth had put these in the woods? After much consideration, the Year 3 children decided that we must have been invaded by a Stone Age tribe! It also looked like they had tried to draw some cave paintings and build a fire to keep them warm and cook their food.

 

We went back into school to leave the Stone Age camp in peace and the children have written some super diary entries to explain what we found on our adventures today. 😊

Year 3 trip to Clonter Opera!, by Miss Young

Date: 20th Sep 2017 @ 2:13pm

On Tuesday, we came to school full of jumping beans! We took a short bus journey to Clonter Opera and we were all very excited. When we arrive, we were taken into a rehearsal room and met a lady called Laura who was the musical director! She introduced us to some of her friends who were opera singers. They taught us some of their songs and we joined in and sang beautifully!

After we had exhausted ourselves learning lots about opera and the amazing songs, we were given some yummy juice and biscuits! After our refreshments, we went into a designing space that hard chairs fit for a Queen! There was a mini opera stage set out in the shape of a small cardboard box. We all designed our own stage thinking about different themes such as a spooky house or a tropical island. We then worked as a group to make our own miniature set. After we had finished we had the chance to choose our own lighting that we thought would be appropriate for out set.

We stopped and had a quick break for lunch just in time to be seated in the fabulous auditorium ready to watch a little bit of the opera. We watched the 4 people we met in the morning perform and they were amazing. At the end we had a singing competition against some other schools and we joined in with the opera singers. They said it was a draw!

We had an absolutely fantastic day and we even showed our singing in assembly!
