What a busy term we have had! Based on the theme of ‘settlement’, our history work has covered several different time periods, from the Stone Age to the Ancient Maya civilisation. We learnt how settlements had changed, including the development of larger towns, such as in the Roman times with more sophisticated buildings including amphitheatres, temples and bath houses.
As part of the topic, we also built Aztec temples out of sugar cubes, created Stone Age style cave paintings, replicated Stone Henge using biscuits, and we’re currently producing travel brochures about Chichen Itza.
We also worked on chronology (timelines), sources of evidence, and comparing and contrasting (including when looking at Iron Age hillforts).
In other lessons, we have produce impressive work too. These include fabulously detailed instructions for ‘How to catch an Iron Man’ (in English), beautiful Rangoli patterns (in R.E.) and a slick dance (in P.E.). Our handball teacher has been so pleased with our progress in our Thursday P.E. lessons; the growth in skills and real sense of teamwork has been super to see. We have also enjoyed our Forest Schools sessions.
