Years 3 & 4

Traders and Raiders Wow Day


Today during our wow day in Year 3 we learnt about longboats, planned them and made two! We had to think carefully about how we were going to fit our whole team in, make sure there were no holes and make it able to pass through shallow water. 


Once we we had made them, we painted it and designed and made shields. Have a look at the pictures below to see how amazing they are!

Year 4 had a fabulous wow event today. We created our own longboat and designed shields to go along the sides. The teamwork shown today was fantastic and we were able to share some wonderful ideas. 

Snow Day!


We were so excited that it snowed! We loved crunching about it in, sliding and throwing it around.



Today we started our new topic with a bang and the ground shook with excitement as we did our WOW Event! During the day we made a volcano using cardboard, a bottle and paper. We also painted it and made it look realistic! Then we used a science experiment to make the volcanoes explode! We then got active and played some volcano PE games. 


Take a look at the pictures below of our amazing day!
