ACTIVITY IDEA

LIVING THROUGH A PIECE OF HISTORY 

 

 

No School, Lock-down at home

What is happening to us has not happened before.  So let’s make a record of the events and things that have happened, we can be like Samuel Peeps.  You never know, your work might be used in future history lessons. 

  • Make a scrap book of things that have happened. This could include:
  • Copies of newspaper reports from the day.
  • Diary from yourself – how you feel, what you think.
  • Pictures of you up to things
  • Pictures that you have drawn

Let your imagination go wild.

What would you put in?

 Welcome to Spring

Welcome to a new decade, 2020, in Class 4.  This term is sure to be as cram packed with action (if not more with the Opera) as the Autumn was.  Below is the start of term information.  Keep checking back to see pictures of what we are doing in class.

WE Day 2020

WE Day 2020

On Wednesday 4th March, we travelled to Wembly Areana to WE Day, a celebration of children changing the world.   It was a very early start, 5am, and the children did not stop all day - they were like the energizer bunny.  They were an absolute credit to the school, parents and themselves in how they conducted themselves around London.   They really enjoyed the experience and took a lot from the messages from inspirational speakers including: Lewis Hammilton, Idris Elba, Jamie Oliver and Callum Scott to name a few about being superheroes.

Comments from the children coming soon.

Natural Disasters

In Class 4, we have been looking at Natural Disasters as part of our Geography topic.  We have investigated tornadoes, earthquakes and volcanoes.  Our Fabulous Finish at the end of term will showcase all our work.

 

We had a great time!!!

Bird Boxes

We have been designing and making bird boxes.  We made prototypes of birdhouse from cardboard to see how they are built.  Then, in small groups, we made a set of birdhouse for the garden in school and in the church yard.

    

   

Cross Country Running

  

KS 2 cross country team ran in the West Dorset Primary Schools competition at Beaminster.  The children performed brilliantly in very difficult conditions of mud, wind and cold.   The year 5/6 boys A team ran superbly and came third overall.  Well done everyone!!
