Learning Journey - History
In History, we enjoyed the 'magical middle' of our focus on the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages by making our own Stone Age arrows. We brought sticks in from home and then used the hacksaw to saw a notch to hold a flint arrow head. We used string to hold this in place, then added feathers too.

Today, we played a game helping Wally from "Where's Wally" to find lost objects by directing him using the maths vocabulary such as quarter turn half turn, full turn, left and right.
In Science, we have been observing and testing the properties of different types of rocks. We tested them by pouring water on them to see if they are permeable or impermeable Also , we carried out scratch tests on them to see how strong they were.
On Thursday afternoons we are enjoying Outdoor Education in the school grounds. This week we discovered some fairy dust and a letter from the fairies which told us that they had lost their belongings in the school grounds. We decided to help by finding as many as we could.
