Monday 21st October 2019-Bronze Age Workshop

Filed under: Whole School @ 4:18 pm

Wow! What an exciting morning! Year 3 were swept back in time to the Bronze Age by our visitor Paul Nolan.

The children helped to transport and then build Stonehenge (Foam Henge) and then some of them had the opportunity to participate in a Bronze Age burial. They learnt about the Bronze Age from the physical evidence left behind in tombs and barrows.

Paul brought in lots of artefacts and activities for the children to participate in. They particularly liked drilling a hole in shale with a bow drill (the first machine to be used by any human). Next, they had lots of fun learning about how Bronze Age people made bronze using tin and copper. The children loved pretending to be a fire to smelt the ores.

At the end of the morning the children began thinking about how they could use their newly acquired knowledge of the Bronze Age to write an exciting story which may appear on Paul Nolan’s website.

Wednesday 16th October 2019 – Year 6 with Different Beaks (?)

Filed under: Science,Year 6 @ 8:24 pm

Over the last few weeks, Year 6 have been learning about evolution and inheritance during our science lessons. Today, we learned about Charles Darwin’s trip to the Galapagos Islands, and his observations about the different finches he saw as he traveled. We learned that the finches on each island had adapted to the environment of each island, all evolving from a common ancestor. To explore why this would have happened, we put ourselves in the position of birds, eating rice and pasta with different shaped beaks (made of tweezers and spoons)…

Wednesday 16th October 2019 – Reading homework in Year 5

This morning, year 5 used their library time to share their reading homework with another. They had been asked to create a poem based on the book they were currently reading. The poem they created was to use one of the styles we looked on National Poetry Day a couple of weeks ago. The standard of poems was fantastic and we all thoroughly enjoyed listening to them. Please click on the links to read some of our favourite ones!
