The children learnt about cells, identified cancerous tissue, played interactive games healing burns and much, much more. The day ended with a workshop on teeth, which really helped to consolidate work done in class.

Year 3 recently travelled back in time to the Stone Age when we visited Kent Life.  The children had fun meeting a Stone Age hunter, grinding wheat to make flour, making their own Cave Paintings, and even experimenting with Stone Age weapons by firing paper stones from sling shots at their teachers!
