Year 3 have been enjoying our topic Active Planet. To enrich our learning on this topic we took part in educational visits to the Soanes Centre and the Natural History Museum.
For our visit to the Soanes Centre we took part in a workshop called ‘Rocks, Soils and Weathering’.
We took part in a sorting activity where we had to think carefully about the different uses for rocks in our everyday life. After we took part in an experiment where we sorted rocks according to whether they were hard or soft, permeable or in-permeable.
On our visit to the Natural History Museum we got to see and sketch the fossil that Mary Anning found. How amazing! We were also able to visit the volcanoes and earthquakes gallery which allowed us to gain extra knowledge and information for our reports which we will be writing over the next couple of weeks!
We have really been enjoying this topic!
