This morning Juniper class were lucky enough to take part in a Healthy Heroes workshop. We learnt lots about how we can keep healthy – physically, socially and mentally. We then enjoyed taking part in some exercises, working towards the hour of physical activity we should aim to complete each week.
Today year 3 visited the Verulamium Park in St Albans. Did you know Verulamium was the third largest British Roman town? The Romans built the defensive wall between 265 and 270 AD and it can still be traced for most of its 2 mile radius. We did a sketch of the wall and then completed a learning walk around the park, spotting different human and physical geographical features.
Juniper class had a wonderful time this morning, completing lots of fun activities as part of their sports day.
In science, Juniper have been learning about soil and it’s properties. We completed an experiment to investigate the disappearance of the chocolate cake, which was stolen from the staff room last week. As the culprit fled the scene, they left behind a muddy footprint, so we matched the properties of the soil to four different samples that we had. Who do you think is guilty?
Juniper class enjoyed taking part in the national daily mile today!
In our history lesson today, we were visited by Emperor Claudius – a real life a Roman Emperor! He could not decide whether he should invade Britain for a third time, after Caesar had already failed twice before him. We provided him with reasons for and against the invasion to help him make a decision. After debating the points that we had put forward, Claudius did decide to invade and he was successful.
We have had some fantastic entries for the DT Challenge across the school – a huge well done to every one for getting involved! Winners are being announced this week and there will be a prize for both the winner and runner-up from each Key Stage. We hope everyone enjoyed taking some time out to get creative.
Here are some examples from a Key Stage 2.
Today in computing, Juniper class investigated different forms of animation, including stop-motion animation. Animation is the process of making a drawing, object or model look as though it is moving. We then created our very own stop-motion films!
We have seen so many examples of creativity during lockdown. I thought it would be lovely to share with you all.
Juniper class have had a wonderful day!
