Well done to all the pupils in P3 who pulled out all the ‘spots’ in getting dressed up and raising money for Children in Need. It really brightened up our Friday after a very busy week. We had fun adding our spare change to our giant Pudsey Bears and we’re looking forward to finding out how much we’ve all helped to raise for this great charity.
P3B had a fantastic morning in Lochend Woods. We had 3 different learning stations to see what living like a Celt would be like (see all pictures by clicking here)
building a celtic roundhouse
creating a natural weave on a tree loom
making a celtic recipe with herbs and oats and cooking popcorn on an open fire.
Out visit made us think about how the celts worked hard to create shelter, food and clothing for themselves. The children had some interesting questions develop from their visit. We looked at lots of plants including different trees, berries, nettles, herbs and oats. We also spotted a toad and some friendly robins.
“How did they go to the toilet?”
“How did they kill their animals?”
“What did they cover themselves with in the roundhouse when they went to sleep?”
“what did they fill the holes in the roundhouse with to stop wind getting in?”
A fantastic learning visit – thank you also to our parent helpers who made our visit possible!
Some of our lovely grandparents joined us during our reading lesson today. We loved having them in our classroom. Some grandparents even completed their own sheet! We were delighted to give them a sticker to say “well done” too.
