This week we have been learning all about Scotland, and our theme was Disney’s Brave. We have looked at the main cities of Scotland, researched our coat of arms and weaved some lovely kilts! We baked some delicious shortbread and created our own stories based on the legend of the Loch Ness Monster! We took a step back in time and looked at what life would have been like during the Vikings times. We designed our own Viking long ships and helmets, and learned how to spell our names in runes! We have had a fantastic week in class this week. What will we learn about next week…?
In Purple Class this week, we have delved further into the different periods of dinosaurs, and even looked at life after dinosaurs. We created a timeline which showed the different periods, and created a freeze frame of the evolution of humans, which was good fun! We even made our own time machines to take a step back in time!
We talked about the friendship between Arlo and Spot, and the qualities of a good friend. We finished the week by talking about the changing seasons, and created some lovely pieces of art on canvases.
We have thoroughly enjoyed this topic, and can’t wait for our last week!
Purple Class had a fantastic week last week. We studied the book, ‘Tom and the Dinosaur Egg’, and discussed how we would protect an egg if we had our own. We set sail on miniature rafts, testing materials that would float or sink, and found out whether our predictions were correct. We made some delicious dinosaur islands, made out of brownies and some realistic islands made out of Modroc.
The children are having a roarsome time learning about dinosaurs, we are looking forward to seeing what is in store next week!
