On Thursday 3rd December, Year 3 visited the Museum of Science and Industry. We were able to look around lots of the galleries and then we took part in a workshop about forces. We learned a lot about magnets, friction, gravity and air resistance.
On Friday 9th October Year 3 went on a trip to Derbyshire. They followed clues to find an ancient settlement at Mam Tor. When they reached it they were ready to enjoy their picnic lunch. Afterwards the visited Treak Cliff Cavern where they searched for Blue John rock and found out all about stalagmites and stalactites.
Year 3's Rock Investigation
The children worked together to find out which rock would be best to make a sculpture from, to be placed outside our school! These are their findings...
In science we are investigating Rocks and Fossils.
