We started our lesson today by first ordering ourselves into a World History Timeline, which was fun! Then we created a timeline of the dark ages. How well do you know events in history? Can you order them without help?   Dinosaurs Stone Age Neolithic and Bronze Ages Pyramid built in Ancient Egypt Iron Age…

Do you like our Viking Longship art?

We used collage, watercolour and wax crayon to create this affect! Remember how strongly built the ships were. Overlapping wood with tar and animal fat staffed in to seal any gaps. 🤢 What would you name your Viking Longship as? – I think I would like mine to be called ‘Serpent of the Sea’!

Red Nose Day!

Today we had loads of fun! First, we learned about Red Nose Day: the fundraising campaign run by Comic Relief, to raise money for children who need our help most across the UK and Africa. We designed our very own red noses and Miss Kirkman tested our memory with the Red Nose Day Shopping List…

Food labels – Nutrition Facts

Today, we investigated how much sugar was ‘hiding’ in our foods. We looked at different nutrition labels for drinks and foods we eat at home! Most of us are aware sugars need to be consumed in moderation. But many of us are consuming far more than we think. We were astonished to find out how much…
