Rock and Roll

Our topic this term is Rock and Roll! Our class novel is Stig of the Dump and we are enjoying finding out all about Stig and Barney’s exciting adventures. We have made our own characters based on Stig and we are going to include them in our own stories.


We have been learning all about rocks in Science. We have each found a rock that is special to us and spent some time investigating it’s properties. We will be using our rocks for different investigations over the next few weeks.


In Geography we are focusing on tectonic plates and volcanoes! Some of us used Oreos to investigate how tectonic plates move.


As we are learning about the Stone Age we decided to recreate a typical Stone Age roundhouse. We collected local materials that we could find such as twigs, sticks and moss.
