In Class 3 we are a great bunch!
Welcome to Class 3!
Class 3 are taking part in the TIME creative arts project this year. We had a special visit from a real Artist called Keith Parkinson. He showed us how to make paints out of different materials like clay, berries and soil. We had fun mixing these new paints and producing our own Stone Age cave art.
Grave Yard Detectives
Children looked at different gravestones, what they are made of (properties) and if/how they are weathered. They searched for the oldest and the rock used. They found two gravestones that were made out of different rocks. They described their appearance and texture (polished, shiny, reflective / dull, dusty, grainy). They observed which gravestones show the most weathering by looking at the letters, the edges of the stone, the level of erosion and the colouring). They answered questions such as:
Do the dates on the gravestones give you a clue?
Is there anything growing on the gravestones?
