Today we used our capacity skills to measure out different ingredients to make a magical potion.
WW2 Evacuation Day
Today we got to pretend we were evacuees sent from London to the countryside during WW2. Firstly, we were 'evacuated’ to different classrooms and had to take part in the lessons (regardless of whether it was Nursery or Year 6). Following this, we wrote a diary about our experiences. Next we sang WW2 songs to’ keep up our spirits’. Finally, we had a challenge of building a bomb shelter to hold 6 people – it was so much fun!
Interestingly, owls swallow their prey whole as they are unable to chew. Even more interestingly, they are unable to digest the bones and fur of their prey so they must regurgitate (vomit up) the remains. Even more interestingly than that, it is possible to collect and sterilise these pieces of vomit (called owl pellets) and then dissect them to identify the creatures the owl has eaten! Judging by their responses, the children certainly found today's experiment interesting (if a little gross!) Although getting our gloves on was a challenge in itself!
On Tuesday 27th March, Class 10 embarked on a Viking adventure day at Compton Verney. The children plundered and pillaged in the forests, learnt how to light a fire like a Viking, built Viking shelters and traditional wattle and daub walls (with horse poo) and even made Viking flatbread! They also managed to capture and enslave many Anglo-Saxons (teachers!) A muddy, yet brilliant, day was had by all (expect maybe the slaves!)
On Monday 9th October, Year 4 had the opportunity to experience a day of drumming, dancing and Indian Culture. We learnt some Bhangra dance moves, had an amazing time competing in the Mesty Croft 'drum-factor' and even got the chance to create some traditional Rangoli patterns. A fantastic day was had by everybody (including the teachers!)
