Learning Together (25.1.2018)
Thank you to everyone who came to work with the children in a range of PSHE and Science activities. The session involved identifying liquids and powders and discussing the importance of never using or drinking something when you are not sure of what is inside. We also explored advertising and how adverts can be deceptive; as well as the effects and impact of alcohol and nicotine on the body.
Some feedback from the morning:
"Brilliant morning showing how to be safe at home."
"Gets the children thinking."
"We had a good discussion about the effects of alcohol and tobacco on the body."
"Very informative, informative and well run."
"Really nice to be able to discuss these sorts of issues, as you don't always get the opportunity to do so at home."
"Lovely to share learning and the responsibility of educating the children."
Stone Age- Iron Age Day (12.10.2017)
Today we were visited by Portals to the Past to experience a day in the Stone Age! We learnt about evolution and early man, how tools and weapons changed and adapted over time, and about the importance of hunting and gathering. We played 'hunt the mammoth', and practised quietly shooting a deer with a javelin! In teams, we built a small version of Stonehenge, and discovered its religious and spiritual importance. Towards the end of the day, we looked at the Bronze Age and the Iron Age, participating in a 'minecraft' style hunt for some malachite, and a Celtic battle!
The children looked amazing in their costumes, so thank you for all of your efforts! They participated, listened and showed great enthusiasm during the whole day, and are brimming with new knowledge.
Enjoy looking through a slideshow of photos from the day.
