Today we made 3D Spitfires, it proved very, very difficult! However, we stuck with it and showed our resilience and made some worthy air raid Spitfires.
Some children wanted to race theirs so the rest of us got down under our tables as if there was a real air raid and waited for the spitfires to fly overhead!
The children applied their knowledge of compass directions and use of an atlas to create a map of Egypt.
To link with our topic of Ancient Egyptians Maple Class mummified some tomatoes. We had to follow a similar process to that of the Egyptians.
It was messy work!
Cherry Class have been learning about Rembrance Day and thinking about all the fallen soldiers. We have made Poppies and dicusssed and their significance. In child initiated learning some of the children made cards, painted pictures and designed their own medals.
Oak were lucky enough to have two trips last week!
First off, we visited the RAF Museum at Hendon to support our learning around our current topic of World War 2.
It was lovely to see the children getting involved with all the different activities, asking great questions during our workshop and interested in the many old planes we saw during our time there. They even looked very smart in the jackets of real life war soldiers and were very respectful of them. Well done Oak class.
Next up, we had our second trip of the week to an event at Hemel Hempstead fire station called Crucial Crew.
Before anything though was the great experience of getting a public bus to the event!
The children had the opportunity to learn about some of the possible dangers they may encounter as they get older and more independent. It gave them some great skills to remember and ways of dealing with different situations and issues.
Overall, the whole week was thoroughly enjoyable and the children behaved impeccably and were great ambassadors of Brockswood School. Well done Oak class, we are extremely proud of you all!
We absolutely loved our visit to the National Space centre in Leicester! It was definitely worth the long journey to become astronauts and save Earth from a deadly meteorite!
Willow Class are already immersed in Ancient Greek Day with the help of our hosts, Theo and Nikos. After looking at a map of the ancient lands, we have been investigating fact boards about a range of topics.
Aspen Class have been completing their Roman Mosaics, as well as designing their own Roman vases. 🔱🍇
