Andy the Artist workshop

We had a fantastic time creating some amazing artwork with Andy. Based on our learning about the Romans, we used exquisite glass tiles to create large mosaics that will be displayed around school. Andy talked to us about the ancient methods and how they have adapted over the years. We also designed and made mosaic frames and Roman soldier artwork that we stained to make it look ancient. We had a brilliant day!

Geography map work – March 2019

We have been using a range of different maps to locate lakes and use grid references. We enjoyed researching and investigating map symbols using Ordinance Survey and A-Z maps.

Trip to Hollingworth Lake –¬†January 2019

We had a fun filled but very cold day exploring the area around Hollingworth Lake. We added points of interest to maps, described the locality and created art work using the area as inspiration. We will use the learning from today to write our own lake setting stories.

Stone Age Topic 2018

During Autumn term 2, 3H learned, discovered and explored the Stone Age. We had a full immersion day where we examined tools, fought giant woolly rhinos and had a go at using some of the replica weapons.

We took on the role of palaeontologists and examined fossilised faeces (only pretend!) to see what people ate in the Stone Age and had lots of fun learning about Stone Henge before building our own.
