This week the class had a brilliant time in our forest area, building dens and climbing trees. This was a special class treat because they had filled up the jar of gems and earned their reward time. Everyone had a really wonderful time.
In Literacy the children wrote questions that they wanted to know the answers to based on our Stone Age learning. The next day they researched the answers and found out some amazing facts. Oli wanted to know where the rope they used to tie the flints to the axe handles came from, we eventually found out that they made holes in an animal tusk and used this as a loom to weave plant fibres through!
Have a wonderful weekend!
It has been another busy week of learning in Lusty Glaze. In our Literacy this week we have been working on our using our tier 2 and 3 vocabulary in our writing which will help our writing to become more interesting to read. Our Maths learning this week has been based on place value and counting in 50s.
Our afternoon learning this week has also been busy. In science we made a wormery and all enjoyed searching for the worms to put in it!
We also found out about Martin Luther King and the role he played in making a difference.
Enjoy this lovely, sunny weekend!
