Year 4 visited Woodmatters in Windermere today to learn all about what life was like in Anglo-Saxon Britain in a fun and interactive way. Firstly, we learnt about the changing Kingdoms of Britain as different groups of peoples invaded and settled in Britain.
Y3 and Y4 enjoyed an afternoon making healthy fruit kebabs. They have been learning about ways to keep our bodies healthy and ways we can make sensible snack swaps.
Year 4 were using all the skills they have learnt so far to improve and refine then put into a sequence.
This morning, Year 4 were experimenting with making shapes and improving their balance on the apparatus. They all identified that they needed to use their core strength.
Y5 had a great day on their Anglo-Saxons and Viking Trip. They learnt how to make ink and quills, how to weave and how to make coins on a furnace. They also learnt how to handle weapons and re-enacted a battle.
Year 4 have been reflecting on how to pray using the rosary.
A small team from Year 2 represented the school at a Year 2 indoor football tournament at Whitehaven. The children showed great sportsmanship and worked well together as a team. We are very proud of them!
Year 4 enjoyed their visit to the library this morning. They were very mature, with excellent behaviour. They also took the time to complete the Library comments slip to leave feedback.
After reading a paragraph from Viking Boy describing the ‘God Temple’, Y5 drew a pencil sketch showing their interpretation of the description.
Year 5 studied different styles of art created in the Viking era and drew their own pencil sketches in a similar style.
As part of our topic on the Great Fire of London, Year 2 have been learning about what houses were like in 1666. Then they used this knowledge to design and create models of Tudor houses.
Y3 started October, the month of Mary, with praying the Rosary. We try to say a decade each day!
