We spent the day dressed as Anglo-Saxons as part of our history topic. We learnt about Saxon names and people's roles in society, clothing, religion, writing and burial. We planned a traditional Saxon feast and listened to the Saxon story of Beowulf around the fire.
4D Poetry Day
4D have been performing 'Who Knows' by Liz Brownlee. Click on the links below to watch the children performing their stanzas!
4F Poetry Day - we read the same poem, and focused on memorising and performing a stanza of the poem with intonation, tone, volume and action.

The children have enjoyed their first couple of weeks back. We have been doing lots of PE, handwriting and maths games to get the children familiar with their learning again. We have also been looking at a book called 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.
The children have been inspired by this book to create a range of work. We have been thinking about some of the positive environmental aspects of the Covid-19 lockdown, and the children have created short information broadcasts about this subject. Please see below.

In addition, we started our forest school activities. The children are enjoying learning outside and working together as a team to explore the natural environment.
