Class Teacher - Mr Farrar
On Tuesday 7th March, classes 7, 8 and 9 went on a school trip to Clitheroe Castle. The day was split into two parts with the children taking part in a variety of different activities. The children went around the museum and answered questions, found their way around the labyrinth and ordered a local time line. Then the children walked up to the 'keep' of the castle, made armour to protect 'Sir Egbert' and built a Motte and Bailey, Norman Castle. The children had a fantastic day and really enjoyed themselves.
Here is a video of Class 9's assembly. The assembly was based around Ancient Egypt and the children explained what happened during this time and how people lived.
Mummifying a fish
In class 9 we are studying Ancient Egypt. As part of our topic we tried to follow the stages of mummification that the Ancient Egyptians performed on dead bodies.
The children melted blocks of ice using different materials to release a piece of Lego frozen in the block. We found that the winning material for melting the ice was the salt.
The children ate samples of different foods to discover which part of the tongue would taste the different flavours.
The children imagined being in a First World War dug out, to celebrate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme.
Children used counters to make amounts on place value cards.The children learnt the value of digits and could do addition and subtraction calculations using the counters.
Class 9 found pieces of Ancient Greek artefacts which they surveyed and pieced together. The children then produced a report of their find and explained what they thought the object had been used for by the Greeks.
The children enjoyed some team games in the sun.
