Welcome to Class 3
Class three have been learning all about chocolate. In science we were focusing on states of matter and looking at the melting point of chocolate. We also looked at the History of chocolate and in Geography the best climate for growing cacao trees. For DT we followed a design brief to make our own chocolate bark and the packaging. This included sampling ingredients, calculating costs and profits, using the computers to design packaging, writing recipes and most importantly making the chocolate bark! After, we sold the chocolate bark making almost £40.
On the 7th of March we visited Southwell Minster for a time travelling experience. There were about 8 schools altogether.We were greeted by a lovely lady called Kate and we all joined in the time travelling song. The children moved around the Minster undertaking a variety of activities such as making friendship bracelets, listened to a Godly play story and learning to sing in a choir .We ate lunch together then carried on with other activities till we all got together for another song before going home. Abbey and Archie were given a candle to bring back to school. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Robin Hoods Bay
Class three enjoyed three days in Robin Hoods Bay. We had great fun at the sealife centre on the first day. We also enjoyed a night walk learning about the history of Robin Hoods Bay. On day two we explored rock pools in the morning. Later, we were unfortunatly met by some bad weather on our cliff top walk. But that didn't stop us! On our final day we had a fantasic time at the bird of prey centre.
