Ibn Saad Spring 1

Ibn Sa’d

A warm welcome to Ibn Sa’d. Thank you for visiting our page. This term has been filled with many thrilling learning experiences.

China Super Learning Day

During this half term we had our first Super Learning Day. The children really enjoyed learning all about the Chinese culture. We explored the 12 animals related to the Chinese calendar, the Great Wall of China and we tried eating Chinese food using chop sticks (which was quite tricky)

Children’s Mental Health Week

As part of our Health and well-being week, the children carried out many activities such as relaxing, meditating and the children were generous enough to buy gifts for each other as part of our “Random Act of Kindness” activity.


Science- choc rocks

Year 3 have been learning about the different types of rock. In the process, we have conducted numerous experiments to help enhance our understanding of rocks. Fortunately, we had the opportunity to explore the 3 types of rocks (sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic) by creating chocolate rocks.
