Investigating Holy Week

In RE, Pearl class have been investigating our topic of Holy Week.  On Tuesday afternoon, we worked on creating freeze frames based on two bible stories – the Last Supper and the Garden of Gethsemane. We needed to be creative in the way that we became our characters.  We needed to think about our body language and facial expressions to show how each character was feeling and to help make it clear which character was which.  Many of us chose to include Jesus and Judas in our freeze frames as well as another disciple.  Some of us were surprised to find out about the disciples in the garden of Gethsemane.  Some of them fell asleep even though Jesus asked them to keep watch and they all left him when he was arrested.

                                 

Can you guess who each person is supposed to be?

Coral visit to Hastings Museum

This term we are going to be visiting Hastings Museum every two weeks as part of our topic “Vicious Vikings?”.

 

This week, the children looked around the museum and made clay figureheads just like the ones that would have been on Viking Long Boats.

Volcanoes erupting in Amethyst Class!

In Year Three we have been exploring the life cycle of a volcano in our ‘Earth Rocks’ Learning Adventure. After making papier mache volcanoes, we then created the lava by combining vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to create an acid and alkali reaction .

Below are some photos from the actual eruption event!

 

 

 

Alongside this, the children have been writing some brilliant formal recounts about the process. Below is Hollie’s writing in it’s draft form. We are so proud of Hollie because, not only has she written a very engaging piece, but she has worked extremely hard on her targets, as have so many in Year Three.

We hope you are as impressed as we are!
