Year 1 enjoyed visiting Cannock Chase Museum and took part in a workshop all about toys through time. The children made their own peg doll, watched a Punch and Judy show and toured the museum looking at different toys through time.
Academic Year 2022-23
Year 2 held a 'Great Fire of London' parent workshop this afternoon linked to their learning in History. 🔥 The children made their very own house to look like it was built in 1666. They thought carefully about what materials to use as they know houses were made from wood and caught fire very easily.
Year 3 enjoyed a fabulous Egyptians workshop. They got to participate in a mummification demonstration, play Egyptian games, do Egyptian maths and find out lots of interesting information. They really enjoyed the day and learnt a lot from it.
Year 1 visited Walsall Leather Museum today as part of their Local History learning. At the museum, the children used 'gold blocking' to make their own leather keyring, made a leather teddy bear and looked at different leather items. Well done Year 1 for your wonderful questioning and outstanding behaviour🙂.
Year 4 have been using discussion to decide the most and least likely reasons for the Viking invasion of Britain.
Year 2 took part in a queen's workshop to end their history unit. They all became knights this morning and had the opportunity to do some jousting, designed their own crest, looked at some artefacts and took part in a knighthood ceremony. This afternoon they learnt about Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth I and did some super dancing. To end the day, they completed a big quiz to recap everything they had learnt. All the children had a fantastic day!
