In year 1 pupils continue to learn about toys. They have been asking and answering questions about historical toys, exploring how these have changed over the years. Next week they will compare the toys that they play with to toys our grandparents would have had. They are expecting them to be very different!
Year 3 pupils have travelled back in time to learn about the Stone Age. They have been comparing villages with a focus on Skara Brae which is a prehistoric village in Scotland. It continues to be one of the most famous prehistoric sites so the children were keen to write fact files all about it.
Learning in Year 4 continues to focus in on the Anglo-Saxons. This week they have learnt about Anglo-Saxon religion, comparing Christianity and Pagonism. Children have also studies Saxon runes which was the writing system of their time. 4TH were even writing their own on Thursday afternoon.
Year 6 children have been using primary and secondary sources of evidence to investigate the Battle of Britain. They have looked into the reasons why Britain were successful in winning such an important battle.
This week pupils from across the school have also been remembering those recognised on Remembrance Day. Each class took part in a two-minute silence on Wednesday, reflecting on those that fought in two world wars. Unfortunately, we were not able to hold our Remembrance service this year. This has been an important event in our calendar for many years however, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we felt it was not safe to hold an event for the community this year.
As part of their learning about Remembrance, Reception and Year 5 pupils have produced some incredible poppy artwork. Pupils from both year groups have worked on collaborative projects to produce the symbol that is so important to Remembrance.
