Learning our model text - 29.11.2018

Making our Viking puddings! - 22.11.2018
For our parent outcome for Autumn we invited all of our parents to come in to school to sample our homemade, authentic Viking bread. We then added freshly chopped fruit and honey to create our very own Viking puddings!
Thank you to everyone who came.
Our trip to Perlethorpe - 05.10.2018
What an exciting day we had! When we first arrived at Perlethorpe we were greeted by a Viking lady called Freya, she wore her hair in braids and a long green, velvet dress. TO begin with, we walked into the woods and created our very own Viking settlement our of branches, cloth and special areas such as: the latrine, animals, cooking and eating. She tested that they were good enough by getting us all inside and throwing water on the top! Only some of us got wet...
After lunch, we dressed ourselves up as Vikings in traditional tunics with medallions around our next to define which clan we were a part of.
We went to an traditional Viking house and listened to Magnus (our Viking guide) who explained the origins of the Vikings to us. From this we took part in three exciting activities, these were: jewellery making, a game involving keeping a ball in the air with our shields and grinding wheat to make wholemeal flour. What an exciting day!
Spectacular science - 19.09.2018
Today we conducted a science experiment to see which material we could find outside was the best insulator. We needed to find a material that Rhea Silvia could use to keep her precious babies, Romulus & Remus, warm when their basket went into the River Tiber.
Have a look at our results, what do you think?
Ruthless Romans - 26.09.2018

We have created a storyboard of the legend of Romulus & Remus, answered and created questions regarding the town of Pompeii and we have been writing our very own short stories based on a Roman disaster!
We became the Roman army - 28.09.2018
What a day! Not only have we been reading and writing about the Romans, today we go to experience what it was like to have been in the Roman army!
Story time - 01.10.2018
