As part of our theme of Africa, we had a talk all about the Big Five animals found in Kenya. The children were fascinated by the photos and videos shared by Peter and his amazing stories of his life in Kenya.
We have made our own dyes just like the Vikings! We used red cabbage, beetroot, blackberries, spinach, carrots and brown onions. We dyed pieces of fabric and then used them with other fabrics such as ribbon, raffia and wool to create a decorative weaving. It took a lot of concentration!
We had a fun time on Times Table Rockstar Day! We dressed up as rockstars and had a rockstar parade. We then had some time in the classroom learning how to use TTRS and lots of times table practice. Remember you can practise at home as well and login details are inside the front cover of reading records.
We had a wonderful time at Leighton Moss Nature Reserve in Silverdale. We had beautiful weather to view the birds from the viewing platform and bird hides. We saw so many different kinds of birds such as marsh harriers, swans, ducks, gulls and robins. We also enjoyed pond dipping and observed lots of different pond creatures like dragonfly larvae, pond snails and water boatmen. We had a great time!
The Imagining History team visited us for a Viking workshop. We did lots of drama activities, such as creating a Viking longship and pretending to be Vikings raiding lands. We looked at replica Viking objects that gave us information about the Vikings and also made a timeline of events in Viking and Anglo-Saxon history. It was great fun!
We went on a minibeast hunt in the school grounds. We looked at microhabitats such as under rocks, logs, leaves and in the grass. We drew and described the microhabitats and counted how many minibeasts we found there. We then drew pictograms to show our data clearly.
