At the end of last term we made boats out of junk modelling materials. We linked this with our Science Curriculum as we had experimented with waterproof materials and our History which was all about Christopher Columbus. We saved them until this term as we thought the weather would be better to try out our designs in the water tray.
Victorian Farm Day
We had lots of fun on our Victorian Farm Day. We dressed up as Victorian children, swept the floor, scared birds and picked up stones from the vegetable patch. These are all things we would have had to do if we had lived in those times. We also looked carefully at all the historical artefacts and drew them using special sketching pencils. We also made butter by shaking cream in a jar. It took a long time, and made us very tired. Finally we ate the butter on some crackers and sprinkled them with herbs we harvested from the garden. We had a great day!
