The Vikings and Romans
We have been writing our own exciting viking adventure stories and created a mystical beast to battle against Erik the Viking and his men. Today we are publishing our stories ready to present to the year 1 crew later this week.
Today we had visitors to talk about the Vikings.
Thank you to Tony, Alison, Andy and Lorraine from Weston Museum for inspiring us with your enthusiasm and love of learning.

This week the children will be designing their own viking and Roman shields in teams.
This week the children experienced through a WOW day learning about the past. We became archaeologists for the day searching for buried treasures. We found objects ranging from the stone age 2.5 million years ago to the Anglo Saxons in 1066.
The children have come back to school with huge smiles on their faces ready to continue loving learning. It was so lovely to see them after our long sunny summer break.
Today we have unpicked our three new school rules.
Respect your environment.
We will be using these to set out the clear high expectations in our school. Together we thought about what it looks like and sounds like.
As part of our learning the children enjoyed thinking about what makes them a good ‘Learning Champion’. We looked at champions from around the world including J. K. Rowling, Tim Peak and Mo Farah. The children then decided on how they could use their qualities to become their own leaning champion.
