As part of our Robin Hood topic, the children were given a lesson on archery. All that took part enjoyed the experience and would make fine archers in our opinion!
Things that go POP!
Today our children have taken the role of mini scientists experimenting with things that go POP!
Our first experiment was called ‘Dancing Raisins‘. We added raisins to lemonade and observed the reaction. The children appeared to be fascinated with watching the raisins ‘dance’.
For the second experiment the children predicted what would happen if we increased the amount of Mentos we added to coke for each of the four bottles.
Much to the children’s amusement (not the adults) the coke exploded everywhere including onto the teachers! The results proved the children’s predictions, the more Mentos added would cause a larger explosion!
The children and adults all had a fantastic day discovering the enjoyment of working scientifically.

Well done children, these are wonderful to read and we hope you are as proud as we are of your poetry writing!
A loud tank shooting
Dangerous barbed wire cutting people
A dangerous shot gun shooting
A dangerous machine gun shooting
A metal rifle shooting at people
A Germany colossal Zeppelin airship is flying over Great Yarmouth
A gun shooting
A soldier fighting
The bombs falling
A soldier riding
A bomb coming
The soldier surrenders
The tank is shooting very fast
The scared soldier hiding in the muddy trenches
The memorial is covered in poppies
The poppies are blowing
The bombs are falling
The muddy soldiers are fighting
The bombs are exploding
The poppies are growing
The soldiers and enemy were marching against each other
A black gun banging
A colossal tank driving
A friendly soldier fighting
The allies won
Fields of hairy poppies blowing in the wind
The big blue tanks were driving around in circles blowing people up
Big tanks driving
Red poppies flying
Brave soldiers shooting you
A big bomb dropping on the house
A bad troops shooting
The brave soldier shooting the bad guys
An angry soldier fighting
A red bomb falling
A brown soldier fighting in the war
A soldier battle
A brave soldier won the Great War
The memorials are for remembers day
A muddy gun firing
A sweaty tank driving
A red bomb dropping
The green poppies waving
A flaming Zeppelin flying
A white airship floating
A huge battlefield in the war
A muddy soldier surrender
A poppies big red long
Blue guns shooting
A Zeppelin with flames flying
A tank is cold moving
The guns are dirty and killed a lot of people
The nice poppies are red and the soldiers cut it when they fight
The big navy is shooting at the enemy
The war is frightening and is electric
The hard army fight in the trenches
The dangerous tank is battling the enemy
The noisy riffles are shooting the enemy
The treaty trenches
The troops attack the spikey barbed wire
A brave soldier fighting
Brave Major Cadbury flying airplane
A tank is metal and it is shooting you
A bomb is blue and it can kill you
A red poppy is waving
Boats sailing fast
Soldiers fighting in the war
Tanks smashing through walls
Poppies waving in the summer
Explosions happening in the war
The people shooting you
The tank is shooting
The enemies shooting with a gun
The poppies are growing
The Great War (WW1) at the Time and Tide
Today the children have transformed into nurses, soldiers and pilots at an enjoyable morning of enrichment at the terrific Time and Tide museum!
We have tried our wings at flying a WW1 Bi-plane with Captain Cadbury in the Royal Air Corp; the children appeared to particularly enjoy hurling watery missiles at the enemy teaching staff! This was before we visited a soldier on the front line to get our hands on the real kit!
As nurses we cleaned disgusting bedpans, made beds, performed surgery extracting deadly shrapnel and bandaged the injured.
The children have been talking about our morning activities all afternoon and we look forward to posting the children’s topic writing in the near future!
