What an exciting day we had when the Partake Theatre Group came into school to work with us on our Viking Workshop Activity Day! We learned that not all Vikings were ferocious fighters, but some lived peaceful lives as farmers, silversmiths, potters and weavers. We even tried out these jobs for ourselves! We also learned how Vikings chose their settlements and most exciting of all, we took part in an actual Viking raid, where our mighty leader was killed by the Saxons. A fantastic day all round!
Welcome back and a very Happy New Year to all the families and friends of our children. We started the term off with a surprise visit from our friends from Scandinavia - Erik the Viking and Sven the Strong! They led the children on a dragon hunt through the wooodland and found lots of clues, leading the children to design the beast that had caused such destruction in our woodland! They then went on to design an advert for brave warriors to join Erik's crew and thoroughly enjoyed the introduction to our Viking topic.
We had a fantastic visit to the Black Country Museum just before half-term. During our time there, we visited lots of Victorian shops, took part in a Victorian school lesson and even went down a Victorian mine! The children were impeccably behaved and a credit to the school. Thank you to all our parent and volunteer helpers!
Representatives from Severn Trent Water visited the school on Monday 2nd October to deliver a KS2 Assembly about wasting water. They then delivered workshops to the Y3 and Y4 classes. The children learned lots about how to save water in their everyday lives and had a thoroughly enjoyable time working in family groups to measure the water wastage!
Welcom back, we hope you all had a fantastic summer!
We had a great time in our Transition days back in July, dressing up as Victorian children and finding out what kind of activities they did in school. We played Victorian playground games, practised Copperplate handwriting and made Peg dolls. Thanks to all the parents who visited our new class on the Wednesday afternoon, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
We are now looking forward to settling on our new Year 3s and enjoying our Victorian topic.
