Class 2's Viking topic was enriched by the discovery of this Viking grave. The class became archaeologists for the day, interpreting what the finds told us about 'Eric'. What did he believe? Where did he travel? What did he do in his spare time? Even what was his hair like? All these questions could be answered through the artefacts - great explanations - great excavations!
Children from class 2 - our 'Wild life Champions', planting trees on the school field. We hope to attract more insects to the school grounds and so feed bats, hedgehogs and birds. We have also been planting because every tree makes a difference to help combat climate change. Every tree got a special good luck dance or song! The trees were donated by the Woodland trust.
Following the story of ‘Handa’s Surprise’, we have been thinking of words to describe the taste, feel, smell, look of different fruits- banana, pomegranate, orange, mango, pineapple, avocado and passion fruit. We came up with some fantastic words such as: crackly, crunchy, yummy, sweet, squishy and bumpy.
The fruits were very tasty.
We made a graph to show our favourite fruit and answered questions about the graph. Our clear fav...
This week we have been learning lots about healthy eating and activities. We had great fun making smoothies.
We were able to follow instructions on how to make a banana and mango smoothie. We were great at taking turns.
The children were able to recognise how the fruit changed to become 'smaller' and 'like water' through the 'blending area'! I was also impressed with how carefully the children used a potato peeler, knife and ble...

In celebration of World Children’s Day, we held our very own EA's Got Talent. It was a huge success and we definitely have some very talented children! A big well done to all who auditioned and to those who took part in the show. We are already looking forward to hosting another event next year!
The children in Class 2 dressed as Vikings for our Viking Day. They looked fantastic!
Dave Oliver from Rattlebox Theatre came to school for the morning. He told some Viking stories and showed us lots of Viking artefacts. After break we learnt about the weapons that Viking warriors would have used and then we all went into the playground for some battle skills training.
In Class 1, we were lucky enough to go to Kent’s Cavern. This linked with our Journeys topic. We learnt about the journey of the Archaeologist, William Pengelly, as well as the journey many cave men and women would have made.
The children particularly enjoyed being in total darkness, and later, hunting for hidden gems. They also were excited to handle different bones and artefacts that had been discovered in the caves.
Linking in with our Space topic this term, Class Three recently visited 'We The Curious' in Bristol, where they learnt more about our topic and enjoyed playing with and experimenting with the different equipment and activities on offer.
One of the most exciting parts of the trip was the 3D theatre experience in the science museum's planetarium, where the children were taken on a trip into space.
