Welcome to our School!
Class 3 have been learning to write a good set of instructions. What have they chosen to write about......?
Class 3 have been finding out all about life in Ancient Egypt. They have discovered how ingenious they were by constructing shadufs, which were an invention for getting water from the Nile to irrigate their crops. They have also had fun mummifying each other (without removing their vital organs first as the Egyptians did!)
Class 3 busy at work typing and editing their poems.
Exploring and Investigating Habitats in the Wildlife Area
and Fairhaven Lake
Making Bat Boxes
Mr Bullock visited us to tell us all about the Roman army. He told us all about the different weapons and equipment Roman soldiers used. He also told us about the Latin names for different Roman manoeuvres such as the tortoise shaped manoeuvre the soldiers formed with their shields called a testudo. We had great fun in the hall being drilled like real Roman soldiers.
We took photos of the class and then each one was cut in half. The pupils had to carefully draw and then paint half of their own face. We used watercolour pencils to make such a super job. Don't they look great!
Class 3 did an experiment to show how shadows alter throughout the day. We drew around a pupil with chalk on the playground and then the same pupil stood in the same place every hour and we could see how the shadows had changed.
We used Modroc to make these Celtic heads of warriors. After it had set we painted them, used wool for their hair and then added the designs of blue woed to make them look like proper warriors!
