Walk Safe Training
Road safety is where you have to be safe when you are crossing a road and especially when you are on your own. When you have to cross a road it is better to cross the road with an adult. If you don't want to cross a road with an adult, then that is fine, but it is more dangerous.
Last week I went to practise crossing the road and being safe. We had to get into partners to cross the road. By Sophia
Road safety is all about being safe when you are crossing the road. It is very important or you will get killed! You must look left and right and if it is clear you must cross safely, otherwise you will get squashed! By Archie.
Trip to REME Museum
We enjoyed a trip to the REME Museum, Lyneham where we built build dodgem cars using lego and batteries. We also enjoyed looking round the museum.
We made catapults out of craft sticks and tested them with marshmallows, fruit pastilles and mints. Usually the mints went the furthest but the marshmallows went far too. The fruit pastilles were a bit short distanced. But it was very AMAZING! and I think it was fun. We even got to take them home afterwards! We tested them each three times to make it fair, then we measured. It was the best lesson ever!
Motte & Bailey Castle Building
I really enjoyed building the castle with my team of castle constructors. At the moment I'm looking at it now, it's falling apart but we have double sided sticky tape to help, so we'll have a better chance with our motte and bailey castle. Our catapults are looking good. The bailey needs some more work. Our draw bridge needs to be put on and our wall need to be ready for when the French attached!!
