Media week scenes

Here are the book covers we created as part of our media week. We used an app called brushes and designed an image to reflect the story we were thinking about ‘Adventure at Sandy Cove’.

The story was set on a beach and the characters hid from the villain in a cave.

Look out for some of them which will be featured in the Rosendale voice magazine!

Call for European volunteers

We have just begun learning about Europe as part of our geography curriculum.

We would love it if any parents that have links to other European countries would be able to help us out.

Maybe you have some objects or photos the children could bring in and share. Or maybe you would like to come and chat to the class. Any time you are available will be welcome particularly straight after independent learning if you are already in the school. (Yes, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are countries in Europe)

 

Learning about our world…

Today we learned the names of the continents and learned that about 300 million years ago Pangaea (all the continents stuck together) broke up and moved away. They still move 2cm every year. Pangea means ‘all lands’.

By Abigail

Today I learned that there are 7 continents and that Europe has 44 countries.

Roman Invasion

To finish off our Roman unit we had an invasion in the playground.

The Celts were happily working away in their Iron Age jobs when, in the distance, gradually becoming louder and louder, they heard the marching of the Roman Army.

In this video 3ML play the Celts but we think we were an even more convincing army 🙂

Learning about Europe

After half term we are going to be learning about Europe as part of our geography curriculum. If any parents have links to other European countries we would love to hear from you. Maybe you have some objects or photos the children could bring in and share. Or maybe you would like to come and chat to the class.

We are also on the hunt for brightly coloured material as we hope to make flags. In particular red, blue, yellow and green.
Thanks so much.
