Our Anglo-Saxon Experience!

Today, we had a fabulous time taking part in an Anglo Saxon workshop. First of all, we started by being introduced to Anglo Saxon names and jobs. We created our own names and chose jobs we would like to have many many years ago! What was your Anglo Saxon name?

After that, we started looking at different artefacts that had been found including a helmet found at Sutton Hoo. We had a great time passing them round and looking at what they were. We discussed home life from the Anglo Saxon times and looked at the different clothes they wore.

After playtime, we were introduced to a game that they used to play where they fought over a stick. It was called stick wrestling. It was great fun, we cheered our friends on when they were competing.

In the afternoon, we looked at the armour the Anglo Saxons would of worn and even took part in a battle. It was a brilliant day! What was your favourite part?

International Poetry Day

Our poem is called the Little Red Riding Hood. I like this poem  because its about when the wolf knocked on grandma’s door, he ate her up. Our class performed this poem by Roald Dahl. We practised this poem in our English lessons. This afternoon, we are performing our poem in the hall. We are going to be given parts in the poem to perform it. This poem is about that the wolf knocking at the door and after that he gobbles up Red Riding hood in one big bite. When Little Red Riding hood came home, he dressed very quickly just like grandma. We got given parts for our poem. My favourite line is when he she got a pistol from her knickers!

May the force be with you!

Last week we did an assembly on forces! We talked about gravity and the man who discovered it (Sir Isaac Newton).

During the assembly we made jokes, raced paper helicopters and demonstrated how to use a Newton metre.

We have had lots of fun learning about gravity in our science lessons, and we loved being able to show our school friends and our family!
