We visited Touchstones to take part in a workshop as part of out WW1 topic. The children used artefacts from WW1 to enhance their learning experience.
Reverend Gill paid us a visit to answer questions to help with our unit of work ‘Life is a Journey’. In this unit the children are required to identify and interview a ‘Super Christian’. Reverend Gill came dressed appropriately as a superhero and it was a great opportunity for the children to find out more about her life.
On our trip to Touchstones, a time travelling professor took us back to the Ancient Greek times. We learnt about the city states of Athens, Sparta and Corinth. We enjoyed dressing up in some of the outfits as well and handling the artifacts of the time. We then had to solve the problem of who killed Archimedes? We decided it was a Roman Soldier from the evidence we were presented with. We then also made out own museum artifact labels and made Greek coins from clay.
The children were all given their own individual login details to access an excellent revision website that the school subscribes to. They were given the opportunity in their computing lesson to login to the website and have a look at the resources available. The children have been encouraged to use it to help them with any areas of the curriculum that they need extra support. The address for the website is www.satsbootcamp.co.uk
We all dressed up in non-uniform to raise money for Children In Need. Don't we look good!
The children had lots of fun using their fine motor skills to make their very own 'Supertatoes' We have loved this set of stories and enjoyed thinking of ways to defeat the Evil Pea!
