Topic/ Science

Wednesday afternoon

 

Welcome to the new topic 'What was Stone age Britain like?'

 

I would like you to look at the vocab checker and see if there are any words that you know the meanings of already - remember this isn't a test and it's okay not to know. If you don't know what one of words mean, then please write 'I don't know' in the box. Hopefully, by the end of the topic we will be able to say what most of the words mean.

 

After that we will be looking at Cave Paintings. There is a powerpoint (saves as a PDF of images) to look through and some activities to match.

 

Enjoy!

Happy New Year everyone! Our new science topic is all about rocks. If you can get on-line, I will share some links for videos and power points but there will also be activities that you can do with just paper and pencils. As well as the tasks set each week, you can also learn more about the topic using the “Oak National Academy” resources. Log in and go to the year 3 science topic called “What are the steps in the rock cycle?” There are also some great recipes on line for making edible rocks at home using sweets and chocolates. You might be able to try one out over these next few weeks. You could also start collecting different rocks from your garden or when you go out for a walk to the park or beach. Keep all your work in a safe place as I would love to see what you have been doing at home. Keep safe, have fun and remember just do what you can. Mrs. Gibson

To get started watch the video clips and go through the power point to find out about different rock types, how they are formed and what they are used for.
