This week started with us making discoveries about the hidden stone age village of Skara Brae that was uncovered in 1850 in the Orkney islands of Scotland. We created information leaflets describing what was found and the impact that has on us learning about our past. We visited Samphire Hoe and learnt survival skills of people from that time period. Thankfully, the weather was lovely and it was so special to be on a proper school trip together for the first time in a long time! In art we learnt more about cave paintings and recreated our own on sandpaper to get that rough wall effect. In maths we have been counting in and adding in powers of 10, as well as using mental strategies for more efficient calculations, and calculating perimeter. In French we discussed what we have and don't have regarding classroom equipment using the correct phrases. We started our PSHE lessons, and discussed changes in our lives. We ended the week with our first trip to the church in 18 months for our Harvest service. Our class sung a very special song dedicated to those who have struggled more than most during the pandemic.
