Romans

The Celts vs Roman Army battle reenactment.

  

Boudicca and her army fought the Romans. The Romans will rule for the next 350 years!

Science Investigation - finding out the best Roman bottom cleaning method.  We tested natural sponge, leaves, moss, toilet roll and pebbles.

   

The toilet roll came first with the sponge coming second. We used wet wipes and chocolate spread and are glad we don't live in Roman times!

Science Week

We are very ‘’egg-cited’’ about coming back to school after the Easter holidays. Mr and Mrs Sykes are bringing chicken eggs in so we can hatch them. They will take 3 weeks in an incubator to hatch and then we will keep them for 3 weeks. Chicks need food when they hatch. By Millie and Albie.

Our topic in Science has been ‘Plants’. Plants need to have water, sunlight, oxygen, soil and bees to pollinate them. Bees like to collect nectar to make honey. This is the life cycle of a plant: Seed dispersal; Germination; Flowering; Pollination; Fertilisation.  By Alexa.

In Science week, we made our own water cycles in a bag and stuck them to sunny windows. We saw evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. It took a few days as we didn’t have much sunshine. Then we had lots of sunshine and they kept falling off the windows! It was fun.  By Henry.

 

Nativity Day

The kings wore golden crowns and carried a silver lantern. Their robes were made of velvet. They were following the star to baby Jesus. Charlie M

     

The angels flew around in the air rejoicing after the birth of baby Jesus and they happily flapped their wings. Abigail

The shepherds stopped on their way to Bethlehem. In the distance they could see Bethlehem. The sheep were in the field munching grass.  Nathan

The donkeys were sat down to rest with the sheep. The sheep went to Bethlehem and the donkeys followed. Daisy T

      

Mary and Joseph stopped on their way to give the small donkey a rest. They could see the lights in the distance. They were nearly there. Cameron

Christmas Activities

Christingle Acrostic Poems

We did a Christingle acrostic poem and it was a bit tricky thinking of the first line of the acrostic poem. It was much better when I got going.  Albie

   

We sketched the nativity and when we were finished we used water colours to complete our art work.  Alex

    

          

Anti Bullying Week

     

Bald Eagles

We watched a video about drawing bald eagles. We all drew really good pictures and it was fun. I like eagles because they are fast and are great at catching fish. They really are ‘King of the birds’. Ollie P

 

Today we sketched a bald eagle with Mrs Quaile. I found sketching the feathers a bit hard. In the end, Mrs Quaile came to help me, then I started to get the hang of it. If you draw an eagle, don’t just draw the feathers dark brown, add a bit of yellow or light brown. Arabella

   

Commemorating Remembrance Day

     

Ammonites

 

The clay was cold and messy. It got all over my fingers. I put little holes in my fossil with a fork. My favourite part was when it was finished. It looked millions of years old!  Abigail

We got clay and rolled it out like a sausage. Then we curled it like an ammonite. We got our hands messy making the design. Every ammonite is different. Some had spots on and some had curled lines. I enjoyed getting my hands dirty. Albie 

Rocks, Relics and Rumbles

We have been sorting and classifying rocks . We have looked at the differences between igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. We particularly looked at whether rocks were shiny or dull, did they have any crystals or layers and  were they permeable or impermeable.

     

In Art, we sketched ammonites and examined  some different fossils.
