Viking experience day was amazing!
We had a go at making and cooking oatbread on a wood fire, it tasted really good. We built shelters out of things we could find in the forest school area and made our own bows out of willow branches and string, firing the arrows was pretty tricky! In the craft area we made clay tiles that showed our Viking names in symbols. Finally we played a traditional Viking game of chess where we had to throw the wooden batons to knock over the pieces.
Our English lessons have taught us all about writing to entertain, persuade and inform. we have looked at how to enhance meaning, to select for effect and how to identify features of different types of text.
We have been looking at persuasive writing in English and have created our own leaflets about the Mediterranean. In maths we have been exploring statistics and for RE we have been learning all about Islam.
We have had a busy start to the academic year and it has been great fun. We have developed our skills in many areas including investigating number, writing to inform and entertain, recording and editing film clips, creating various pieces of art and investigating Earth and Space.
In Science we have been exploring living things and their habitat, our trip to Millenium Green was great fun (even though we got very wet!)
This half term we have been exploring forces, we have carried out various investigations and in our Science lessons and have made working models of fairground rides in DT.
We have been learning all about the ancient Greeks.
