Memorable Experience
Year 3 welcomed Andy Heafford to school from Leicester Cathedral for the Urban Pioneers Memorable Experience. Andy talked to us about the history of the Cathedral and told some interesting and funny stories. We even dressed up in historical clothing!

Beaumanor Hall
The big event of this half term was the residential to Beaumanor Hall. We had an amazing time and had lots of exciting adventures. The highlights included hide and seek in the dark and the rock climbing wall. We were very proud to slap the hand when we reached the top.

We have also performed some exciting drama and conducted amazing science experiments to help learn about volcanoes. We split into groups to act out a volcanic eruption dance, shouting exciting vocabulary to help our writing. Then we crushed different coloured biscuits to create the layers of sedimentary rock to form ‘pudding stone rock’ and used bread and jelly babies (under the heaviest books we could find) to create fossils.
