Kingsbury trip to Carymoor Environmental Centre
On our recent trip to Carymoor, Kingsbury class learnt all about the Vicious Vikings! We ground flour from wheat on stone using traditional methods. We then baked bread on an open fire and ate it with honey on plates we made out of willow. We even met the bees that made the honey! We dressed as Vikings and listened to a story from a real Viking in a round house sitting around a fire. We learnt about Viking runes and had a treasure hunt to spell a word in runes-and won some chocolate money! We helped to design some Viking shields, then used them in a Viking battle. We had a fantastic time!
As part of our science topic about nutrition, we went on a Tesco Farm to Fork Trail. We learned about healthy eating and tried some healthy snacks! We were surprised to find out that some of our favourite foods were very high in sugar but pleased to find out about some healthy swaps.
Outdoor Learning Day May, 18th May 2017
On Outdoor Learning Day we took all of our learning outside of the classroom. In maths, we used team work and thinking skills to solve practical problems on a maths trail around the school grounds. We went on a tricky spelling 'treasure hunt' to find muddled Year 3/4 spelling words and unscramble them to win prizes! In English we have been learning about persuasive writing and advertising so we made 'TV adverts' to try and sell games we made up ourselves. After lunch we had a go at composing some music inspired by nature using percussion instruments. We performed our tunes to Gainsborough class who were very impressed with our musical talent! Next, we learned some more about the human body in science. We timed each other doing lots of different exercises then talked about what happens to our body when we exercise and why. Finally, we worked together to make and label a giant diagram of a human skeleton! Great fun was had by all, and we were pleased that not a drop of rain fell all day!
Here are some useful links that you can use to practice at home some of the things we have been learning in school.
