YEAR 3 enjoyed a day out of the classroom where they were able to see some of their learning in ‘real life!’
In Science, the children have been studying 'Plants and Growth', and walking around the beautiful grounds of Hestercombe allowed them to see pollination and seed dispersal ‘in action’.
They also went on a scavenger hunt to collect items for their Art challenge in the afternoon. We had some wonderfully creative ideas, using leaves, pine cones, flowers, twigs etc. These included a fairy, an under-water scene, a mountain, a dinosaur and a waterfall.
There was also lots of fun playing near the waterfall; building dams, splashing around and going on a rock hunt!
The weather was just perfect, not too hot, nor too cold, so all-in-all, Year 3 had a great day out!
