Year 3 Walk

This week saw Year 3 excitedly reach for their wellies, wrap up warm against the wintery elements and head out to the quarry. 

As part of their topic  ‘How does your garden grow?’ Year 3 visited Aughton Quarry to develop their descriptive writing and to sketch living and growing things through a viewfinder. In English they have been reading and analysing The Tin Forest by Helen Ward and when they arrived at the quarry they compared the real setting of the quarry to both the tin and living forest in the story. They recorded what they could see, hear and smell around them and in groups they explored the quarry and used their imagination to help them view their surroundings creatively.
