We received a letter from a drainage company saying they had found something unusual on the school field. When we went to investigate we discovered a HUGE bone. We tried to discover what the bone had belonged to and contacted Dr. Brace at the Natural History Museum. She has informed us that the bone belongs to an extinct woolly mammoth. Apparently they lived in the East Riding in the Stone Age. What an incredible discovery!
In science we have been learning about rocks. We worked in groups and made a representation of the earth to show the different layers; the inner core, the outer core, mantle and crust.
Miss Guild’s class have been having fun learning about capacity in their numeracy lessons. They have been making Invisibility potions and also Fairy Dust potions (that makes you fly.) The children had to mix the correct amounts of ingredients to make the potions. If you see anyone flying round year 3/4G you will know it worked and that they are now experts when working with capacity! Our ingredients took Miss Guild a long time to source and included: Frog’s Breath, Dragon Blood, Teardrops of a Faerie, Mountain Haze, Troll Bogies, Inky Slime. We have learned that there are 1000 millilitres in 1 litre. As we carried out our work we realise that it is very important to be accurate when we are measuring liquids to ensure we follow our recipe closely. We are going to use these skills when we make our recipes for ‘The Taste of Summer’ cookbook.
