While the Year 6 children had a day out today, the rest of the school had an outdoor learning day. The children worked together on a project based on 'The Lost Words' by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris. It is a stunning book of art work and poetry with words that have been 'lost' and taken out of dictionary use. They are all nature words, which our children found horrifying. They went on a trail around the school grounds to find words and pictures, wrote group poems and used watercolours to re-create images from the book. It was fantastic to see such team work, respect and co-operation from children across the school. Please click here to see more photos.
KS2 linked their History to Beach School once again this week. The children made Viking longboats in groups in their classroom. Once down at the beach, we talked about Viking burials and how they were sent off with their possessions on longboats and were set alight. They believed that the smoke would speed up their journey to the afterlife. The children practised lighting small fires in teams first, then we set their boats alight! Finally we tested them in the sea to check that they would float. Please click here for more photos.
Wonwell class linked Beach School to our topic about holidays today. The children were tasked with the job of working in a team to make the best and most creative sandcastles they could! They came up with moats, bridges, defence systems, mountains and much more. What a fantastic example of team work, creativity and communication. Please click here to see more photos.
