This week Suvie and Helen from MED theatre came and led a workshop all about Dartmoor in the Bronze Age. They shared lots of knowledge with us but because we have already learnt a lot already, Helen asked us to show a flame of knowledge if we already knew something or a big sunshine when they taught us something new.
Our Dartmoor topic was really exciting as so many children had lots of prior knowledge and were really keen to learn more about their local area.
Children enjoyed bringIng in their own research, finds and creations Here are some:
- Faye's frog photos and horn find
- Fred's tor climbing equipment
- George's Lego tor creation
- Lily's rams head skull
- Molly's research
- Rafi's sheep jaw bones (painted gold)
More photos next week!
Henry - maths and English
Bo - doing maths challenges and writing dialogue in English.
Summer - maths games and getting better at times tables
Arnold - making mosaic tiles with Mr Dray
George - maths and history
Max - maths and art
Lily May - my baby brother called Baby David being born!
The children have worked so hard and are rightly proud of what they have produced! Amongst other things, they have also been trying to keep rainy weather blues at bay by learning to sing 'Lovely Day' by Bill Withers!
This week we loved watching this video about Dartmoor History
There are lots of great fact sheets on the website
This weekend why not find out about Dartmoor’s famous slug!
Another highlight was an afternoon of scientific discovery making and testing paper aeroplanes! We learnt about fair testing and only changing one variable.
We read the rather creepy and strange Hansel and Gretel story by Anthony Brown. Miss Penny said she didn’t like it because the plot is so sad and the adults in the story are all awful people. She told us to always be critical readers!
