Advent Preparations around School.
Each week I will add to this gallery as we continue to journey through Advent…
Wrens and Robins
Wrens and Robins have had a visitor this week… Pickle and Big Dave! I am sure you’ve been hearing all about their new classmates and their mischief!!
Larks impressed me this week with their outdoor ‘twig tallies!’ Who needs pen and paper when you have the great outdoors!! They’ve also been retelling the Nativity story as well as exploring other faiths this week too. I wonder if they can tell you about the special meal Jewish people celebrate. They had a taste themselves too.
The Swifts have had another busy week learning in more detail what contributes to soil formation! They began going outside and going on the look out for any areas of soil formation they could group and categorise. They really got into the challenge of it!
The class have also began building the foundations of their Skara Brae civilisations in English/Topic and have enjoyed learning about how the Skara Brae people lived and comparing it back to the Palaeolithic time period.
This week we have designed and made a Saxon settlement and a Viking settlement. The children loved using the saws and hot glue guns to construct their houses and then worked really well together to add finishing touches. The Viking blacksmith was particularly detailed and even had a horse drawn cart carrying weapons to be sharpened!
It has been lovely listening to the children applying their knowledge of this period of British history as they completed their settlements.
The children have also completed their Viking Sagas and enjoyed sharing them with their peers
