Weston Park Museum

Last week Class 3 had the opportunity to visit Weston Park Museum in Sheffield.  The children were able to explore the different zones the Museum had to offer as well as taking part in an Offerings for Athena workshop in the afternoon.  

As you can see from our pictures we had lots of fun.  A big thanks to the parents who came along to help out on our trip.

Class 3 Visit Bradford

We had a fantastic trip on Monday to Bradford, where we visited a Mosque and Mandir.  We learnt lots of fantastic new things and the children enjoyed the trip.

Class 3 have been doing some fantastic multiplication and division work over the past couple of weeks. 

They were rewarded today with some times table board games.  They had to answer division and multiplication facts for the 3, 4 and 8x tables.  

Keep up the good work!

Clay…

Class 3 have been making pots out of clay, in the style of Bernard Leach.    In 1920, Bernard Leach established a pottery studio in Cornwall and worked hard at his craft to become a very well-known and influential artist.  I think they look great.  Well done everyone!

Roses for Year 4

We used drama and role-play to act out the War of the Roses. We belonged to either the House of York or the House of Lancaster.
The War of the Roses lasted from 1455 to 1485.
The Houses of York and Lancaster fought over who should be the King.
In the end, Henry VII won and married Elizabeth of York.

 

We also used different sources to find out historical facts about Tudor Monarchs. We used primary sources (portraits, accounts of the time) as well as secondary sources (books, IPADs). We presented our research as a group. We discussed “bias” in the way the monarchs were painted in their portraits and in some of the primary accounts.
Did you know that Edward VI was only king for 6 years?
Did you know that Elizabeth I gave nicknames to her favourite people?
