PHASELS DAY 2
We are all up and ready to go after a restful sleep! We had cereal, sausage and hash brown bap, yoghurt and juice for breakfast. We are all very organised; we're packed up and waiting for our first activities of the day to start. We are playing hide and seek in the lodge before we head off!
PHASELS WOOD 2017
We have arrived safe and sound (with no travel sickness) after a short journey. Our lodge is a nice new one and we are all pleased with our rooms. We're having fun staking crates and climbing. The sun is shining and lunch was great! This afternoon we are doing archery and high ropes!! The signal is very patchy here but hopefully we'll be able to update you this evening after our chicken fajitas and evening activity!!!
We looked at the book 'Ahmed and the Feather Girl' this week. We did lots of fun things linked to it! We made wool feathers, thought about our own hopes and dreams, wrote in character, did an experiment about flight, learned about the history of the circus and some famous circuses from around the world. We had a go in PE at some of the skills we had see performers use. It was a very busy week!
We have been learning about Roman mosaics this week. We have used them in maths to look at symmetry and fractions and we have then had a go at designing and making our own.
Today we held a tribal meeting. We had received word from the St Albans tribe that the Romans are coming! What do we want to do? Fight? Meet with them? We will be writing to our chief tomorrow, explaining our own points of view and trying to persuading them to do what we think is best.
This week we have been learning about bread. In science we found out what yeast does when it is added to bread. We tasted lots of bread that we can already buy to give us ideas and then designed and made 3 'tester' breads. We ate this in class along with our friends and evaluated it together, choosing one to make into our final design. We then made our own bread from scratch and then made packaging to be able to get it home safely!
We have been learning how to write persuasively in Literacy. Our topic at the moment is Australia and we have linked our Literacy to this, writing about the rainforests.
This week we have had a real focus on this year's anti-bullying theme, "Power for Good". We have used superheroes as our inspiration, thinking about what 'powers' we can all use to prevent bullying.

We all did some sewing, thinking about our starry night. Every class has done this and they will all be joined to make a whole school piece!
We have been looking at lines and shading techniques while we have been sketching.
