Merchants class have been incredibly resilient this half term learning to ride bikes and how to stay safe on the roads when riding bikes.
Now we have our new school bikes we can continue to practice using our school cycle track.
Merchants class have began learning all about rivers. We have started our journey creating a playground river. We continued to flow down the river to Rooksbury Mill where new enjoyed looking at what was living in the River Test and carrying out some geography filed work.
The children will have to be resourceful thinking what to investigate.....
Merchants have enjoyed researching Viking Longboats. After Sven came to visit we designed, made and evaluated our own Viking boats.
We had to think about naming our boats. We Had The Dancing Dagon, The Swirl Boat and Warrior Boat. The children were very reliant throughout the process.
'How we are different?'
Merchants Class has settled really well this year and we have enjoyed starting our topic.
We had a lot of messy fun learning about the digestive system, squashing banana, crackers and orange juice together.
The children were very resilient at learning some technical names for the digestive system and are now incorporating these in to our lessons.
We have had a trip to Queen Mary's College where we looked at x-rays and began learning all about teeth.
There will be lots more fun to be had this term....including finding teeth.....watch this space!
