Birch have had a busy second week back at school. We have continued our work on angles, exploring acute, obtuse and right angles. Some of the children have gone on to use a protractor to accurately measure angles! In Science, we learnt all about the parts and functions of a plant. Some of our own plants have begun to sprout in our ongoing investigation! In project, we have been considering the geographical location of Egypt and explored the importance of the River Nile and cracked some hieroglyphic codes! I hope that you all have a lovely and restful bank holiday weekend!

Fishbourne Roman Palace February 2020

Birch class were exemplary today at Fishbourne Roman Palace. I was very proud of them all!

We had such a fantastic day learning all about the 2000 year old remains of the Roman Palace and how the residents lived all those years ago.  The workshop session was particularly fun where all the children were dressed as slaves and had to try out a range of different activities. They experienced bridge building, making mosaics, grinding corn, writing on wax tablets, making a tile roof and making up games suitable for a Roman Prince and Princess.

 

We were amazed by the remains of all the mosaics and loved walking round them all. The museum was fascinating and we enjoyed looking at so many old artefacts.
