Today the children designed and made Roman catapults using lollipop sticks and elastic bands. They then went to war firing paper rocks at each other!
In forest schools today we were calculating the perimeter of things on the yard like the 100 square, the area of leaves, and exploring the Fibonacci sequence by looking for trends in the number of petals on flowers and prongs on leaves.
On arriving at the Dewa museum we were greeted by Jenny our museum tour guide. She told us lots of interesting and 'horrible history ' type facts and showed us around the museum, making it fun.
There will be NO forest schools as we are on the Celtic trip on Tuesday.
For Tuesday the children should wear warm, old clothes as they would for forest schools as there are some outdoor activities. They will need a waterproof coat AND old trainers, wellies or boots to change in to.
They will also need a disposable packed lunch and drink.
Language homework tonight is to write a diary entry for the half term holiday. It could be one detailed and descriptive entry or several smaller entries.
There will be NO forest schools tomorrow 05-02-18.
Research and present information on ONE of the following:
Celtic food and farming
Celtic clothes and jewellery
Remember to present your work nicely with headings, pictures, borders and neat handwriting.
Homework is due in on 07-02-18.
This week we built miniature roundhouses on the mound to try to recreate a Celtic hill fort. The task was quite tricky and we didn't manage to get roofs on. The children worked hard on their houses and gained a sense of the past.
Maths Homework for this week is to revise times tables on TT Rockstars- x 5, x10, and x3. Thank you.
Happy New Year
Welcome back , I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a well deserved rest. So it's a new year and I am looking forward to all the activities we will be doing.
Language Homework this week is to kick start Spellodrome again as this is compulsory.
The children will need to complete a 20 minute session and follow up with 5 lots of 5 minute sessions for this week. Thereafter the children should spend 30 minutes a week minimum on Spellodrome and be aiming for 1,000 points.
No homework will be set now until after Christmas. However the children should keep up with their reading and learn the 5 times table. They could also practice their handwriting and cutting skills. Revision could also be done on 2,10 times tables and on their spellings. New lists will be set on Spellodrome after Christmas.
I am pleased to say that most of our high quality products were sold. The children did a marvellous job in the making stage! Unfortunately we were so busy I didn't take photos. However here are a few of our stall.
