Y4 Litter Pickers

This week in Year 4, we took to the streets of Queen’s Hill on a mission to clean it up! We have started a project this half term, learning about the changes that have happened in the local area in our Geography lessons. We have also linked this to our Science learning this half term, about the positive and negative impact that humans have on their local area.

Year 3 History Trip Day 2

The other half of Year 3 have had a brilliant day at Norwich Castle today!

They showed all 3 school rules, ready, safe and respectful and asked some brilliant questions.

What a great way to end our amazing Ancient Egyptian topic!

F1 Jaguar Club

The three teams have been working each week after school preparing for the F1 Jaguar reginal finals. The children had to design, make, assemble, test and race their cars at the reginal heats. They also had to prepare a presentation about their work. In order to gain sponsorship the children wrote to local businesses and were then able to buy their own merchandise with their very own logo’s on.

All three teams did exceptionally well. Winning awards across all categories. Two of our teams were extremely successful and are heading to the National championships in Leeds!

Year 3 History Trip

We had an amazing day at Norwich Castle learning and consolidating our knowledge about Ancient Egypt.

We got to look at what life was like in Egypt, explore real artefacts, look at a sarcophagus, create Egyptian jewellery and think about the question ‘should artefacts remain in the tombs or be taken out to study?’

Well done to Year 3 who showed they were safe, ready and respectful and thank you to Norwich Castle for being fantastic hosts.

Year 3 History

Year 3 enjoyed recapping their learning about Ancient Egypt ahead of their trip to Norwich Castle this week.

They created their own cartouches out of clay and used hieroglyphics to decorate and write their names.

Y5 Ancient Greek Day

To launch our new history topic, Ancient Greeks. Y5 had a day of cooking. We prepared and cooked Melomakarona (which are Greek honey-spice cookies), chicken kebabs with roasted vegetables and tzatziki dip and a Greek salad. The children worked tirelessly in the kitchen all morning to prepare this wonderous feast. In the afternoon we wrote up our recipes with a detailed method including modal and imperative verbs.

Finally, once all the work was done we sat down and ate all of the wonderful food that was prepared.
