Topic - Vikings
This week in Topic, we have been exploring Viking life - we have been making Viking shields, weapons and designing houses in Minecraft. We all really enjoyed it and our favourite part was turning ourselves into Vikings!
We had great fun designing pumpkin faces to carve into our class pumpkin for the school pumpkin competition. Our winning designer was Ethan with his cat design so we carved it and presented it at the Halloween disco.
Our design didn't win but we still had great fun at the disco and dressing up for the day.
This half term, we have been really busy settling into our class routines and working hard in our lessons. In Topic, we have been exploring Volcanoes, Earthquakes and Climates - we have re-created our own volcano (which erupted!), investigated how tectonic plates cause earthquakes and tried build our own earthquake proof structures using marshmallows, straws and jelly (we didn't eat any, honest!).
We have been out with the Adventure Service to our local area, practiced map reading and using walkie talkies and also created our own paper and built a campfire.
We are all really looking forward to the holidays so we dress up for Halloween (Mrs Jefferies already has her own broom!) and we will be finishing our half term with a Halloween disco organised by the School Council.
Have a great holiday everyone!

Transition - July 2018
Our transition topic has been countries in the World Cup. To celebrate and share their learning each class set up a carnival stall and the school spent a wonderful hour at the carnival and learning about the different cultures. Clumber class had Costa Rica - they made animals from the country, a volcano and served iced coffee and fruit drizzled in honey.
