In Nursery we have been talking about Remembrance day and poppies. We have been making our own poppies and using the small world soldiers.
The children in Reception have been learning about Remembrance Day. They really enjoyed looking at the artefacts brought in by the children from home to support their learning. The children showed a particular interest in the animals who supported the war effort so they have also done some additional learning based around the purple poppies.
Today, the Year 4 bubble have been learning about Cave Art in the Stone Age Era. We learned about the natural materials and colours they would use and made our own cave art paintings based upon the Lascaux Cave in France.
Year 3 have been learning about Stonehenge, so we decided to create our own versions using biscuits. The best part was when we had finished, as we got to eat them - yum
Reception have had a wonderful time celebrating bonfire night this week. Messy art, making guys, chocolate apples and a real bonfire in the woods!
Children from our School Council have represented our school at the cenotaph in our village. They laid a wreath and marked the day with 2 minutes silence.
CELEBRATING VE DAY: We have made sausage rolls and we have started to make VE Day bunting. We finished our day by decorating VE Day biscuits and putting them in a special Union Jack box.
Year 3 and 4 have had a wonderful day at Arbeia Roman Fort in South Shields. We enjoyed exploring the remains of an actual Roman fort and looking at the reconstructed buildings. The children behaved wonderfully and could not wait to share what they had seen and learned when we got back to school!
Year 4 have been really enjoying learning about the Roman soldiers, what they wore, their roles in the army and how they got into the army. Today, some of us have developed our design and making skills and finished making our shields. We will looking at Roman legion formations and how the Roman army was so successful.
