Go-Cart Making Week 27th June  - 1st July 

Class 3 have been working with two of our parents, Clive and Matt, to design and build two working Go-Carts.  First we drew our designs, two of these will be made into our Go-Carts.  Then we built go-carts out of lego.

                 

Alongside our smaller models, Clive and Matt helped the children to build three full sized working go-carts.

     

 

Then we had a go-cart race!!!

Today we walked to the top of Colmers Hill to get a great view of the village and surrounding area.

 

Anglo Saxons -

Our topic for the summer term is Anglo Saxons. We will be making and doing lots activities over the coming weeks based on this.

This week we, as part of our story writing work, have made our own Anglo Saxons village.

    

 

Residential to Hooke Court - Anglo Saxon & Tribal Theme

The children of Class 3 spent two days at Hooke Court on a residential with an Anglo Saxon theme.  The children were fantastic and had a great time.  Not once did they complain about the weather, we had four seasons in one day!!  It rained, snowed, hailed, blew a gale and we basked in the sunshine.  They proved that they are a great team.

On day one we learnt to weave, write our name in Anglo Saxon runes, make clay jewellery, cook Anglo Saxon food and build a wattle and daub fence!  After dinner, a 21st century dinner, we had an Anglo Saxon saga around the camp fire with the very Saxon delicacy of toasted marshmallows.  At the end of the evening we went back to the house and had hot chocolate and everyone was asleep by 10.30!! Miss. Jenkin, Mrs. Meek and Mrs. Parry were very impressed.

Day two was Tribal Kingdom day!  After sorting out our rooms and a hearty breakfast we walked to Hooke Wood to become two tribes. Here we learnt to build a den and form their own community.  After lunch we decorated our faces or hands for a tribal chant to keep other tribes away.  This was followed by a scavenger hunt, treasure hunt and tribe game before home time.
