Archaeology Dig!

Year 5/6 became archaeologists today (as part of family learning) and took part in a dig. They had to find the pieces of a Neolithic jug and then put it back together which proved to be quite challenging – the children were very resilient! They all earned their archaeologist award and can now go on to dig up more fossils and artefacts! Some also continued with our cave paintings by adding their hand prints directly on to our cave walls in the classroom.

Thank you to all of the parents who supported our family learning and came to join in with the fun!

Cave Paintings

Class 13 enjoyed enhancing our cave environment today by creating some cave paintings. We got in to the spirit by scrunching up paper and drawing upside down / laid on the floor as they probably would have done in the past! It was lots of fun!

 

Multiplying and Dividing

Class 13 support each other during their learning on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100, 1000. The children are developing their coaching skills and are getting better each day! They naturally coach each other and use methods such as modelling to support their peers.

 

Year 5/6 Product Launch

Year 5 and 6 have worked incredibly hard this term learning all about the rainforests. To celebrate their learning they have produced a fantastic re-usable calendar which will be on sale for all to buy! Our calendars will be sold at our celebration event on 18th December 2018 at 5pm. Calendars will be £7.50 to buy – a real bargain!

We hope to see you there!

 

Preparing for the Product

We have been preparing for our product today by completing the art work needed for the calendar. Class 13 enjoyed getting messy by creating a rainforest picture and then rolling it in ink before printing it. The end product was really effective but you will have to wait for the calendar to see it!

 

Tropical World

Class recently 13 enjoyed a trip to Roundhay Park and Tropical World in Leeds. They attended a workshop in the woods where they measured trees, identified leaves and hunted for minbeasts (they were braver than me)!

At tropical world, they enjoyed looking at the animals but what surprised them the most was how hot it was! They were really able to experience what it would be like to visit a rainforest and were really immersed in their surroundings.
