Hello and welcome to Neptune's class page. We are a Year 3 and 4 class and our teachers are Mrs James and Mrs Simpson. Keep checking in to see the exciting things we get up to.

For your information, homework is given out on Wednesdays and is due in the following Monday. We encourage children to read as regularly as possible at home, and expect their school reading book to be read at least 3 times a week. Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday and children should come into school wearing their kit on these days.

Our Solar System

We worked in small groups to research and present facts about the planets in our Solar System. We were really proud of how they turned out! 

Bracelets made in textiles and RE

We learnt about the Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan, where siblings exchange bracelets to show care and protection.

 

3 types of rocks!

 

We had fun in science this week, demonstrating the ways in which different rocks are formed with the use of Starbursts sweets.

We found out that sedimentary rocks are formed when sediment settles in layers over millions of years. Metamorphic rocks are formed when existing rocks are changed through extreme heat and pressure. Igneous rocks are formed when magma from volcanoes is heated cooled and solidified. 

Examples of each rock include:

Sedimentary - chalk, limestone, sandstone

Igneous -  basalt, pumice and granite

Metamorphic - slate, marble and quartzite

Our Amazing Weaving

 

As part of our textiles work for art we have completed some paper weaving. It was tricky at the start to remember to go 'up and over', but once we got the hang of it there was no stopping us.
We are now going to apply these skills to wool!

Science - rocks

 

We have had fun so far this term with the beginning of our new science topic on rocks. We have grouped and classified them according to our own criteria, and have realised that there are so many different types of rocks!

Over the next few weeks we will discover much more about where rocks come from, how they were formed and what they are used for!
