This week the children have been cooking ‘trench cake’ to coincide with our 1918 project…..we’ve also been looking at using colour compound adjectives (e.g. inky-grey; turquoise-green; midnight-black) to describe art scenes.
Tomorrow, the children will use their ballistas for the first time in battle! Firing off to see whose ballistas has the most power!
A big ‘well done’ to Harry who brought in the most delicious Colosseum cake: enjoyed by all!
This morning Mr Rouse – skipping enthusiast and PE teacher – encouraged everyone in the school to skip more! Here are some of the photos:
Today, Owl and Kestrel classes enjoyed a trip to Caerleon, South Wales where they visited an ancient amphitheatre as well as old Roman barracks.
Well done to all of those who came dressed in Roman costume today! The children enjoyed
- Catapults (Romans vs Celts)
- Designed a Roman building
- Creating Roman puppets
- A Roman laurel wreath
Previously, Kestrel had used blocks of wood to create their own mosaics (see photos).
This afternoon the girls braved the cold and managed to get through to the Quarter Finals of the football competition before losing 0-2 to Saltford.
Well done to the team who all played excellently.
This afternoon, Miss Craig showed the class how Andy Goldsworthy (without any sticking or gluing) works with nature to produce pieces of art.
Yesterday evening the girls played fantastically well and despite losing 2-3 to Widcombe, they all really enjoyed the game.
This week has been ‘cooking week’ for Kestrel class. Each day a small group of children have gone to the cooking room where they measured, weighed, cooked and of course tasted their delicious concoctions.
See, also, photos from a 3-D shape lesson, during which children created polyhedrons from nets.
