Earthquakes!

We learnt about earthquakes in Geography today and we had a go at making some earthquake proof structures. We then tested them out to see how strong they were. We all worked really hard in our groups and were very supportive of each others excellent efforts.

History Day

Today was History Day.

We went to the Time and Tide Museum for the morning and were allowed to handle lots of artefacts! We focused on fossils and we all touched a mammoth fossil as well as many others. We then drew the fossils and looked at other areas of the museum, looking for things that were artefacts and remains. We even saw an ancient Egyptian mummy hand!

Thank you to the Time and Tide Museum for a wonderful day!

Swashbuckle Lil

Year 3 and Year 4 visited the Time and Tide museum today to act out one of the Swashbuckle Lil stories and meet the author, Elli Woollard. We got really involved in acting out the story going around the museum hiding from Stinkbeard! We also met the author who talked to us about writing in rhyme, highlighting the importance of writing and telling us how fantastic it is being a writer.

It was a great opportunity for the children to learn new literary devices and interact with the characters.
