  • Friday 24 March 2023 Maple Class trip to the Ashmolean What a fantastic day we had at the Ashmolean! We loved looking at all the artefacts and learned so much about how Ancient Egyptians lived and how they were buried. In our groups we were given artefacts to handle and we had to guess what they were. We were fantastic detectives and really impressed all the adults with our thinking! We enjoyed having time to sketch our favourite things in the museum and the Ashmolean very kindly gave us some papyrus to do a final drawing back at school. Thank you so much to all the adults who came with us!
  • Saturday 18 March 2023 Maple British Science Week To celebrate British Science week we complete a number of different activities. Here are some pictures of us looking closely at our fingerprints. We learned that our fingerprints are unique and that scientists and detectives can use these to connect a set of prints to the person they belonged to. We looked closely at the ridges on our prints to see if they were whorl, arch or loop patterns.

  • Friday 2 December 2022 Norwegian Trolls This week we had lots of fun as we started to make our Norwegian Trolls using sticks and wool. We used wool to join a small stick to our Y shaped sticks, to create the arms. We made a pompom for the hair. Most of us found it a challenge to tie the wool to the stick! We can't wait to finish making our sculptures next week.

We explored the wheel of healthiness and the wheel of happiness. We practiced doing a 'Calm Palm' and talked about how it made us feel. Using Curiscope, we explored inside a human body and found out about the amazing work our respiratory, circulatory and digestive systems do. We learnt about the damage that smoking can cause to our bodies.

We persevered through everything that went wrong and are so proud of our finished pouches!
