This term we have been learning about volcanos and earthquakes in our topic 'Angry Earth'. We looked at the movement of plate tectonics and how they cause these natural disasters as well the effects they can have on the enviroment around them. When learning about volcanos it's only right that we made our own and conducted an experiment to see which amount of vinegar would make the largest volcanic eruption. It was great fun and the children loved the topic!
Today some of the KS2 children combined together to create poppies which were taken up to the remembrance monument in Wellow. Each poppy had a poem on it written by the children based on the portey work they have been doing in class over the last week. All of the poems showed respect and thoughts to those who have fought in wars both past and present and we were very proud of all wellow children today.
We had a brilliant time in Stone Henge looking at Neolithic life and how Stone Henge was constructed through artefact handling and reconstructing. We also went up close and had a look at the impressive structure, sketching the stone from different angles and applying our knowledge. I was very proud of year 3 and the questions they asked throughout the day.
