The Pride of Prince Edward this week is a pleasure to have in class. He is kind, polite and hard working. He always looks after others in our class and makes it his mission to be a friend to everyone. These qualities and more make our friend in Y3 Sapphire Class an obvious choice to be a Pride of Prince Edward!

This week we visited Sheffield Manor Lodge and we had an amazing time. In our class this term we have been learning all about the Stone Age and this visit helped us to learn even more!

Our first activity was to build a Stone Age shelter big enough to us fit in! We learnt that people in he Stone Age had to make houses that were easy to put up and take down because they were always moving to escape the harsh weather conditions. Then we explored how Neanderthals made fire. We used an replica of a Stone Age tool which created friction to make embers.

Henry Moore was an English artist who was born in 1898 and he died in 1986, aged 98 years old. He is most famous for his abstract bronze sculptures, many of which live at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

As the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is quite far away from school, we had to get on a double decker coach to get there. We were so excited to be able to sit on the top deck. We were able to see lots of different places that we can’t normally see when we are down on the ground. IMG_2946[1]

When we arrived, first we had our milk and snack sat down at the picnic tables, before we went and explored the park looking for the Henry Moore sculptures.
