Last week we finished our History topic about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. The children enjoyed learning all about life during these periods. They had fun out in our forest school area becoming Vikings for the afternoon and even trying some of their food.

This half term, we will be learning how to sew and will be making our own fabric bookmarks. We look forward to sharing them with you.

Starfish- Pyramid poster challenge!

Thursday, November 21st, 2019

This week, Starfish have been busy working on a challenge as part of their history topic. Each group of children needed to complete some research about the pyramids of Ancient Egypt and present their findings on a poster. The children found out lots of interesting facts and worked really well in their groups,  thinking about the best way to present their findings. The groups made scrolls, books and eye catching posters which all looked great. Well done Starfish!
