Year 3 Ancient Egyptians Trip!


Year 3 enjoyed learning about the life of an Egyptian, explring artifacts and learning stories about Egyptian Gods and Goddesses.  Children also had an opportunity to explore real Ancient Egyptian artifcats and study the Hieroglyphs on them.

Children were engrossed in their activities and observations about ancient jewellery, clothes and how to Egyptians made Mummies!


Science Year 3 Rocks and Soils!


Year 3 have had a visit from Steve Wright from Caled Rocks who came to teach year 3 about rocks and soils.  

Children learnt about different types of rocks, ages of rocks and how rocks are formed.  The children were able to handle rocks from volcanoes in Hawaii and Iceland and watched real footage of an expedition to an active volcano in Iceland.  

Children also learnt the names of different rocks and matched them to their type as well as learning about their properties.
