WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UPTO?
We had a fantastic day dressing as a Roman, creating crafts like a Roman and behaving like a Roman.
As part of our Roman day, we made some Roman sandals, catapults and mosaics. We designed our own Roman shields and used the same symbols that they used.
Dressing like a Roman
We dressed up for our Roman Day. Some of us were Gods or Goddesses. Others were gladiators, centurions or citizens.
We have made a cam mechanism which has an axle, a cam and a follower. When you rotate the axle, it turns the cam, which engages with the follower and make the flag go up.
This week in English, we have been gathering information about volcanoes in order to write a shape poem (sometimes called a concrete poem).
We have started our week off by planting a variety of herbs in our herb trough. We are growing Rosemary, Mint, Chives, Fennel, Basil and Dill. We cannot wait to see how the seeds grow into plants.
World Book Day 2022! We are Readers!
Wow! What a brilliant day we have had to celebrate 25 years of World Book Day! We all dressed up as characters from our favourite books (even the teachers), completed a WBD maths challenge, made a bookmark to recognise what great readers we are, completed 'Book Bingo' in the library and completed other lovely tasks to celebrate reading.
Our Brilliant Violinists.
Macaroni Inverted Commas!
In English we have been learning about speech in texts. We used macaroni pasta to show where the inverted commas should be put when recording speech. Such fun...just don't tell Mrs. Gilmour that we were writing on the tables!
In art, we have been studying ammonites and sketching them using pencils and pens. We have experimented with a range of shading techniques.
Bell Beaker Clay Pots
As part of our Stoneage topic we investigated Bell Beaker pottery. We researched how the pots were designed and decorated and what they were used for at the time. We then made our own.
