On Monday we had great fun learning about Viking clothing. We all had a chance to dress up and experience the lovely itchyness of hand weaved wool garments.
Having looked at some cool photos created on an app, OWLS had a go at creating some word pictures. The key details of each picture were drawn using really creative sentences linked to our topic of Vikings. We then added some colour with water paints and coloured pencils.
Following on from some work in Literacy, OWLS went outside today to investigate who whould be quick enough to escape from ‘The Monster’! We estimated and measured distances, then measured the time taken to run away from the monster. If you took too long you were eaten! Later on we went back inside and drew some pictograms.
Pupils in KS2 had great fun taking part in a football tournament at Chantry Middle School. The attitude and behaviour of everyone was superb which created a great team spirit. A big thank you to the PTA who funded the transport, and to all the parents who offered their help for this event.
When we got there everyone was really excited because we were the first members of the public to see Northumberlandia. First we had to go to Blagdon to learn about Blagdon’s history and about how all of the owners of the estate were called Matthew White-Ridley, we also found out why Northumberlandia was built. After that we got back on the bus to go to the Northumberlandia site. When we got through the wood we saw the sheer size of it. First we went to the ankle and worked our way up to the knee, then the hip. Mr Downer said that if we were really sensible and stuck together we could go up to the chest. We were sensible! After that we went down to the viewing hills. Luke found something that looked like Amber but it was just a lump of resin! Then we got back on the bus to go back to school. It was amazing!
