This week, the children were learning about sound. To link in with this topic we learnt how to make a Kazoo! Mrs Milbourne showed the children how to use tools such as a saw, billhook and knife safely. Then they worked in pairs to help each other make their own instrument. Ask them if they can show you what they made and how!
The children also went on a Sound Safari on Friday afternoon to see what different sounds we could hear. We discussed all of our senses (touch, taste, sound, sight and smell) and what it would be like if one of them was taken away. The children closed their eyes at different points around school so they could really take in what they were hearing. Here are some of the things the children heard:
This week, 4SH made some replica Roman pottery! They looked at some sheets and discussed the different shapes and styles of pottery and what they might have been used for. Mrs Milbourne showed them how to mould the clay in to similar shapes and then they had a go themselves. It was quite messy! Can you tell what the pottery they made was used for?
For the rest of the week, the groups went outside and played a Roman numerals game. They had to match the numbers and numerals to win!
