  • WOW start making rocks using Mod Roc

    Published 14/01/20, by Cressida Whitfield

    Year 3 had the chance to make their own rocks using Mod Roc. They had to use newspaper to make the shape and size of the rock. They then had to use strips of mod roc to coat the newspaper. When the whole rock was covered, they had to smooth out the holes to ensure it dried effectively. In the next weeks, we will be painting these. They will then be put on our class display.

  • Year 3 Fantastic Finish

    Published 14/10/19, by Cressida Whitfield

    On Thursday 4th October, Pear and Cherry had their first Fantastic Finish afternoon! We started off the afternoon with a presentation about Celtic Harmony. We showed everyone our pictures and spoke about what we did during our time there. After that, there were different activities laid out for parents to take part in. The favourite was cave paintings, where many of us preferred to lay on the floor and complete this way. Lastly, we sang 'We Will Rock You' with a Stone age twist to parents. 

    We would like to say how great the children's behaviours were. They all did Roebuck and themselves proud.

  • Celtic Harmony Trip

    Published 20/09/19, by Cressida Whitfield

    As an exciting wow to our topic, we went to Celtic Harmony which is an Iron Age settlement. We were completely mesmerised and immersed in the hook. We had fun and we were learning at the same time. We can’t wait to keep learning about the Stone age because of our visit to the settlement. It was very helpful being able to visualise what life was actually like first hand.

  • Science Workshop

    Published 14/03/19, by Cressida Whitfield

    Pear and Cherry were completely engrossed in the Science experiments on Wednesday. We explored materials and their properties and learnt about solids, liquids and gases. We had four stations which had different experiments on. The first one was called Chromatography where we discovered the different colours used to make a felt tip pen. Our second station involved making a lava lamp. We used water, oil and salt to make this. We were amazed by this! Our third station involved us finding out which materials were the strongest. Our final challenge station involved blowing up a balloon without using our mouths. We used bicarbonate of soda and vinegar which created a gas when mixed! We had the best time and learnt a lot!

We have written diaries and setting descriptions, This week, we are going to be re-telling the story of Traino and Livia and try to magpie the authors style of writing. We have been enjoying this book and cannot wait to show you what we have written.
