Thursday 12th January 2017

Year 3 and 4 visited Sulgrave Manor.  A Tudor and Georgian house built by direct ancestors of George Washington.  During their visit, the children enjoyed dressing in Tudor Costumes and going into the Tudor bedrooms to find out that babies used to be hung off the wall to stop them being eaten by RATS!

The topic for the Spring Term is the Tudors

Year 3 and 4 will be visiting Sulgrave Manor to support their learning.

The topic for the Autumn term was the Stone Age and Iron Age.  They have done some Stone Age paintings.

Holly wrote about the Stone Age visitor:-

We learnt about the dangerous animals and when they killed a mammoth how they used the bladder.  We learnt about what they ate and how they survived.  After lunch we learnt about stone circles.  Then we made a stone circle out of jenga blocks.  We marched around the stone circles and sang a song.  Then we had a look at the weapons from a long time ago.  we talked about deer hunting, then went outside to hunt a chair which was covered in fur.  When we went back inside we saw a sabre tooth tiger skull.  My favourite part was seeing real life weapons.
