This week we have been finding out about the events of Pompeii and what happened when Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. We then completed a map challenge and using the atlases we found the worlds major volcanoes. In PE we have been taking part in attack and defence games.
This week we have be learning about different kinds of rocks. We planned an experiment to see which rocks would erode. As scientist we had to decide how we would make the test fair and how we could record our results. We have also been looking at volcano pictures in art and have created some wonderful designs.
Class 3 has made a fantastic start to the new school year, full of energy and enthusiasm! This week in maths we have been looking at place value and in literacy we have been exploring volcano poems. In RE we have been learning all about our family tree and making links with Jesus' family tree. Our topic lesson has been all about different rocks and we have been sorting them into two groups, man-made or natural.
