Spring Term

This week, our year 3 children took part in a Rocks and Soils workshop at the Life Centre in Newcastle.  They became mini scientists investigating the differences in a range of natural rocks and also testing different types of soil for their absorption.  In the theatre , the children enjoyed watching a series of mini experiments, some which had 'explosive' outcomes.  Finally, our children took part in the ice skating activity.  We had so much fun and learned many new facts.  Our children behaved impeccably and the staff at the Life Centre commented on this.

This experience links to:

Article 28 - education must develop every child's personality talents and abilities to the full.

Article 31 - every child has the right to relax, play and join in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.
