In Science today, we learnt about how fossils are made and created our own! Next week, once we've uncovered our fossils as palaeontologists, we're going to story board the journey of a dinosaur from a skeleton to a fossil.
Natural History Museum!
We visited the Natural History Museum to learn all about volcanoes and earthquakes. We learnt there are different types of volcanic explosions such as effusive eruptions. This is when magma rises through the earth’s crust and flows out of the volcano as liquid lava. We even managed to squeeze in some time to visit and sketch some of Mary Anning's famous fossil discoveries!
We have been working with Art specialist Julia to develop our observational painting skills. We worked really carefully to try to capture the plants that Julia collected from her holiday! Here are some of our beautiful paintings.
As part of our Volcanoes and Earthquake topic, Year 3 have been building their own volcanoes to help identify its parts.
