Flag Fen

On Friday 22nd March, we went to Flag Fen, a local Bronze Age site, to learn about life in prehistoric Britain. The day began with a timeline activity, where we learned about the different time periods leading up to the modern day. 

 

For our second activity, we became field archaeologists who sorted a selection of artefacts into artefacts from the Stone Age, Bronze Age and the Iron Age. We were even challenged to find the red herring, which came from the Roman period (something we are very excited to be learning about next year in Year 4). These artefacts included:

  • a beeswax tablet (an early writing instrument)
  • a spear head, with an intricate pattern, from the Bronze Age
  • dried flowers (woad) which were used in the Iron Age to turn them blue before battle

 

Following this, we transformed into experimental archaeologists and we made pots using a variety of natural materials. For example, wood, string, shells, pine cones and sticks.

 

We finished the day with a tour of Flag Fen, where we saw a causeway, boats which were thousands of years old and well preserved and a bridge which was in the same location as it had been during the Bronze Age. It was used as a religious site.  Our tour finished at a reconstruction of a roundhouse, where we heard a story about giants and fairies and battles around a lit fire. It was magical. 

 

What an incredible day we had!

 

Please find some pictures of our day below.

22/3/19 Penguins Update

 

This week we have been learning:

- editing and publishing our narrative writing

- about how fossils are formed in Science - ask us at home about the cool playfoam activity we did to help us understand the fossilisation process

- about how bronze is made in Topic

- about the Christian creation story at our Church afternoon

 

8/3/19 Penguins Update

 

This week we have been learning:

- about money (looking at the values of coins and notes and making amounts of money in as many different ways to make an amount of money). We also started to look at how to add amounts of money together by partitioning the pounds and the pence.

- about dialogue and -ing clauses in English before we wrote our own diary entries which included these features

- about two special women to celebrate International Women's Day: Jo Salter and Marie Curie

- about Bronze Age roundhouses in topic

- about algorithms in Computing.

 

 

8/3/19 - As part of our computing learning today, Miss Reed performed a simple dance routine for us and asked us to create the algorithm for the dance using the dance move cards. We then had to test the algorithm to see if was the same as Miss Reed’s. If not, we had to ‘debug our program’. Some of us were given ‘repeat 2 times’ cards so that we could repeat the whole sequence. We learnt that we use repetition to make an algorithm short and easier to understand. We also had great fun creating our own sequence of dance routines with the dance cards (algorithms).

7/3/19 - World Book Day

1/3/19 Penguins Update

 

This week we have been learning:

In English, we will begin by focusing on the story named 'Stone Age Boy' and after a few weeks, we will be writing our own narratives. In Maths, we will continue to learn about volume before moving on to learning about money. It would be great if you could start looking at the values of coins and notes at home to give us a head start on our learning. In Science, we will continue to be learning about rocks before we move on to learning about plants. In topic, we will continue to be learning about the Stone Age through to the Iron Age and we have our trip to Flag Fen on the 22nd March to look forward to, too. In RE, we will be focusing on Easter and doing lots of work about The Easter Story. In Computing, we will be learning about algorithms whilst in C4LS we will be focusing on rules, rights and responsibilities.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to speak to me.

Welcome to Penguins class!

 

I am very excited to have 30 new Penguins in my class and I can’t wait for our learning to get started!

 

Our topic for the Autumn term is Ancient Egypt, with our focus question being ‘Were the Egyptians ahead of their time?’ We have a variety of exciting texts we will be focusing on in English including ‘Egyptian Cinderella’ and ‘The Scarab’s Secret’.

 

In Maths we will be continuing our learning through the use of Maths No Problem. We will begin by focusing on our knowledge of numbers and their value.  

 

During Science this term, we will be learning all about Light.

 

In Geography we will be locating Egypt on a map and studying the River Nile.

 

In Art, Penguins will be studying and creating their own hieroglyphics, whilst in Design and Technology they will be building their own pyramids!

 

We will continue to learn Spanish in Miss Donkin’s Spanish assemblies each week.

 

Useful information

 

Mrs. Pollard is our teaching assistant.

 

PE is on a Monday (this could change at any time so please ensure kits are in school every day). Please ensure kits are clearly named.

 

We encourage children to read regularly and children will receive a reading raffle ticket for reading 5 times a week. Children should record their reading in their reading record daily. Now children are in KS2, they can do this independently, however we would ask that you sign the reading record weekly to show that you have acknowledged your child has read. Children should bring their reading record book into school every day. Thank you.

 

Please remember your water bottles every day as our classroom does get very warm. Please make sure the water bottle is clearly named and is only filled with water or squash only. Also, if your child requires a snack, they will need to bring this in with them, as they no longer will have this provided. Please ensure they come with a healthy snack. Alternatively, tuck shop will run daily from the first Monday of term. Thank you.

 

Homework will be given out on Thursdays and is due in on Tuesdays. Please encourage your child to do the challenge questions set. If they wish, they may attend the weekly homework club to complete their homework.

 

Children will be lining up in the morning outside Penguins door and will be going in to the classroom to complete their morning activity at 8.50am. They will be released from the same place at the end of the day.

 

We have a fun and busy term ahead and I’m super excited to get started.

 

Please feel free to speak to me for any further information.

 

Miss Reed
