Shadow Puppets

We have done some terrific science learning in our topic about light and shadows. The children designed a shadow puppet to include different materials that were transparent, translucent and opaque, to create the effect that they wanted. They showed some excellent DT skills too and were very pleased with the results!

Trip To Flag Fen

Despite the torrential rain, we had an amazing ‘stone age survival’ day at Flag Fen! Along with Barasingha Class, we took part in many activities including learning how to make house walls with ‘wattle and daub’. This involved weaving sticks as a base for the walls then mixing clay, cow poo and straw as the plaster! We also experimented with natural materials to paint on rocks. Later, we made clay pots and decorated them using sticks and pine cones. It was good fun throwing spears to be stone age hunters! We also enjoyed investigating stone age and bronze age artefacts as well as exploring a real roundhouse complete with a cosy fire.

Harvest Festival

At the end of term 1, we joined with Barasingha Class to welcome our parents and carers in to school to join us for our harvest assembly. The children did a brilliant job and sang beautifully! They thought about why we celebrate harvest in the autumn and why we support people who are less fortunate than ourselves. We are very thankful for the generous donations of food which we have sent on to the Grantham Foodbank.

Stone Age Stewed Fruit

We thoroughly enjoyed making our own stewed fruit as part of our history learning. A great opportunity to practice our cutting and chopping skills - and it tasted lovely!

Cave Painting!

We had an amazing afternoon learning about the art of cave painting in the Stone Age. We then created our own cave painting in our own ‘cave’ (under the tables!) and shared our stories together! We all had great fun and a brilliant start to the new school year.
