As part of our science topic (Rocks and Soils), we visited the life science centre where we looked at different rock types and identified them from given clues. We investigated the permeability of soil and sand to see which would be better to use when planting, and looked at how rocks and soil are moved by rivers.
We got a surprise when Miss Dalley and Mrs Cummings said we could go ice-skating!
We have been to investigate the Stone Age to Iron Age in preparation for Autumn 2. Excitedly, we explored the gallery in search of artefacts from this time period and found lots of AMAZING things made from a variety of materials. We noticed that some objects survived over time much better than others.
This week we visited Gateshead Library to choose our new reading books. The Library Assistant told us some hilarious jokes and we even joined in with some of the short stories.
