On Wednesday,Year Three visited the Horniman Museum for a workshop on Ancient Egyptian artefacts. We were not only looking at the artefacts, but holding them as well, so all of us had to wear special white, cotton gloves, because, most of them were thousands of years old. We then visited the new World Gallery, which only opened a week ago, it is fantastic! As it was such a beautiful day, we had lunch and playtime in the park. Everyone had a lovely day. The children,as always, were a credit to Our Lady of Grace and to you.
Year 3 had a wonderful day at the Science Museum. We had interactive fun in the “Wonderlab” and loved going to the lecture theatre for workshop all about Forces (our Science topic.)
Year 3 recommend the Science museum for all the children at Our Lady of Grace. It brings Science to life and most of all it’s fun!
Stone Age Day
On September 21st, Year 3 went to Horton Kirby Environmental Centre to support their study of the Stone Age.
We had a great day. We began by looking at a timeline to help us understand that the Stone Age was a VERY long time ago!
We acted as archaeologists and searched for stone age tools and stones.
We ventured into a "cave" and used mud and charcoal to create our own cave paintings (it wasn't easy in the dark!)
Finally, we used metal and flint to create fire!
We had great fun and learnt so much. Well done Year 3!
