This week in outdoor learning, year 3 enjoyed square lashing and weaving. They used string to bind two sticks together at a 90 degree angle and then made a square. Afterwards, they weaved in grass, flowers, sticks etc into their square.

Austerfield Day 2 (Y3E and Y3GA)

posted 13 May 2019, 06:01 by Laura Guiton

Day 2 of Austerfield continued to be a pleasure with the children in Year 3. 

After breakfast, children had some free time to explore the grounds, play football and meet Hector the rabbit.



Later, children were split into teams to complete an orienteering course. We developed as geographers by  honing our map reading and compass skills. 


After lunch we had time in the animal house looking at spiders, snails and even a snake! We were incredibly brave and held the animals if we wanted to. Would you have been this brave?

Year 3 had an amazing time in Austerfield and behaved beautifully. Thank you to all the staff who joined us at Austerfield!

Y3GA at Austerfield (Day 1)

posted 8 May 2019, 12:16 by Laura Guiton

Despite the rainy weather, Y3GA have had a super first day of our residential at Austerfield Study Centre. We began with an informative lesson all about different soils and carried out experiments to look at how they can be separated.


We continued developing as scientists as we investigated the properties of different rocks. First, we grouped rocks based on whether they were permeable or impermeable. Then we explored which rocks floated or sank before using magnifying glasses to see what else we could notice.We even made a volcano using bicarbonate of soda to create a volcanic reaction. 


After lunch, it was time for our trip to the quarry. We stood on the weighing bridge and tried to guess our overall class weight in kilograms. We weighed 142 kg! Following this, we discovered more about the different types of clay found in the quarry and tried to identify the three types. We saw a huge digger at work and the driver said 'hello'. 

When we got back from the quarry, we had our tasty dinner and enjoyed some free time. We have all managed to make our own beds. Then we had time to play football, learn to juggle and made some origami after playing, "Do this, Do that". Then it was time to get our pyjamas on, drink our bedtime drinks and snuggle down to watch a film before bed.


We've had an amazing first day and can't wait to have plenty of fun tomorrow too! 


"Parents we miss you but we are having a really great time", Year 3GA!

We've also enjoyed the wonderful Austerfield grounds during our lunch and free time!
