Roman Trip


On Wednesday 12th June, year 3 visited Lancaster Museum to visit a Roman called Marcus. We learnt all about how the Roman soldiers trained; what protective clothing they wore and weapons they used to defend themselves. 

We then visited the Roman bath ruins near Lancastle Castle.

Did you know Lancaster used to be a Roman camp called Lunecastre?

Science week


Science week 2019

Thank you to all of the parents who came to our Bottle Flip Challenge lesson on Wednesday 22nd May. The children loved finding out how they could clip the bottle successfully. 


Lucas and Szymon were some of the best bottle flippers and went head to head to see who could flip the bottle three times. Lucas won! 


Here are some photographs...

On Thursday 23rd May, all of KS2 visited Eureka in Halifax. 

Year 3 visited the All About Me gallery and had the chance to dress up as doctors and learn more about their body and healthy eating.

The children then watched a science show called 'Chew to the Poo', and yes, they learnt about how their food turns into poo due to the digestive system. 

Have a look at some of the photographs we took...

Here is what the children are learning about this half term. 

White Scar Caves


As part of our science unit on rocks and soils, year 3 visitied White Scar Caves in Ingleton on Valentine's day. The children had a fantastic time learning all about Christopher Long, who was the first person to disocver the cave, and about the caves itself.

As we walked through the cave, the children saw limestone, slate, fossils, stalactites, stalagmites and so much more. 

Have a look at some of the pictures below.
