Wow! The summer term is speeding by so quickly. We have embarked on a voyage into the world of the Vikings. Were they really vicious? We have also enjoyed our annual overnight camping trip to Fernhill Farm with the Osprey Outdoors team. Though a little wet and muddy, we had bucket loads of fun!

Recreating Sound Waves - Monday 13th May
It was so much fun to go outside and play around, making our own waves with jelly babies. This really helped us to understand how the vibrations disturb the air particles as they wave towards our ears. Check out this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VE520z_ugcU to make one yourself.
Spring Has Sprung!
Look at these beautiful photographs the children took, inspired by the artist Georgia O'Keefe, to base their paintings on. Can you match the photos with the paintings?
It's all about endurance in Class 4: "BY ENDURANCE WE CONQUER". Following the famous motto of Ernest Shackleton's family, we have conquered so much new learning and many new challenges. There's still more to come too! We couldn't have planned our class topic any better. The BBC have acknowledged the incredible achievements of Shackleton in their recent programme, Icons; a team is trying to locate the remains of Shack's ship, The Endurance, right now. However, most amazingly, we have found out that one of our very own class members is the great, great, great niece of Ernest Joyce, Shackleton's dog sled trainer! Who'd have thought it?
Have a look at photos of our trips to Clip 'n' Climb (Weston Super Mare) and Mendip Outdoors (https://www.mendipoutdoorpursuits.co.uk/). We wanted to experience the challenges of overcoming fears, perseverance and resilience for ourselves. We had a blast! If you visit Clip 'n' Climb, check out the leaflets we left behind - all designed and written ourselves - on the walls of the climbing centre.
Forest School @ Mendip Outdoors
HUGE thanks to Mendip Outdoors for their donation of a FREE Forest School session. They tailored it to our class topic - Mountains and Explorers - and looked after us extremely well. The staff from Mendip were so friendly and supportive throughout the whole muddy day!

WORLD BOOK DAY 2019 - Sharing a story with Class 2.
We were in awe of the artefacts we were allowed to examine - with special gloves of course! We studied the Nile and how important it was to so many walks of life in Ancient Egypt. Our art work has been focused on the ritual of mummification, including our very own masking tape mummies and clay sarcophogi. We planned our own short narratives based on the folk tale of The Egyptian Cinderella, Mummy poetry and recounts about the suspicious death of Cleopatra.
