As part of Christmas week, we learnt about and made Christingles.
Merry Christmas to you all and thank-you for the lovely gifts and festive wishes. Love Hazel class staff xxx
We were very lucky this week to be visited by Scientific Sarah from Mad Science. She taught us about circuits and electricity.
We had a go at creating circuits to make a buzzer work, we connected a switch in our circuit and we also tested materials to see which ones were conductors (allowed electricity to pass through) and which ones were insulators (did not allow electricity to pass through).
It was great fun and we especially loved seeing her light a bulb using nothing but the electrons from the plasma ball!
Reading with parents
Thank-you so much to the grownups that visited to read with us on Friday morning.
We loved sharing a book or two with you.
To celebrate Diwali on Thursday this week we made Rangoli patterns by colouring them and using coloured rice.
Today we made Roman coins using air drying clay. We looked at some real Roman coins that had been found and used our knowledge of Roman numerals to make our own. It was a lot of fun and a little messy. We will be taking them home on Monday once they have dried out over the weekend.
This week we have been learning about Boudicca’s rebellion. We made Roman and Celtic shields and re-enacted the six main events.
- The Iceni Tribe peace deal with the Romans
- The Romans break the deal
- Boudicca gathers an army
- Boudicca’s army attacks
- The Roman’s fight back
- Boudicca’s death from drinking poison
We really enjoyed this activity, have a look at our pictures to see how much fun we had!
We have had a great first 2 weeks in Hazel class and we are loving our topic of The Romans. We have created some mosaics of a Roman Soldier and even learnt to march as one too.
Have a look at some examples of our mosaics and keep check back every couple of weeks for more updates on what we have been getting up to.
