Trip to the Ashmolean Museum
On 7th July we went to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford to expand our knowledge about ancient Greece, but ended up learning more than we expected! We saw some very fascinating artefacts, including a mummified adult, boy, baby and cat! There was a gallery full of old-fashioned money. The Greek money had a variety of different images on. It was exhilarating because it was new learning for us.
After lunch we took part in a workshop about ancient Greek Olympians and how they liked to show off their muscles. We were given artefacts and had to guess what they were and what they were made of.
Mirabel C: “This was one of the most knowledgeable trips I’ve ever been on. I would advise everyone to go.”
Learning About Factors in Maths
We were learning about factors in maths by using counting blocks.
Working with pulleys to see if a pulley makes it easier to lift things!
Learning Facts & Figures in Geography by playing Top Trumps
First Aid Training
We were talking about our feelings and emotions and comparing how our pictures look. We talked about how we all think differently.
I was doing some work on why I am special and it was really fun hearing why people thought I was special.
Trip to Salisbury Cathedral
We went to Salisbury Cathedral to learn about advent. We made bead bracelets to tell the story of Jesus through beads.
