Year 6 Viking Day

On Tuesday 5th February, Year 6 held a VIKING DAY!

Ian, from Portals to the Past, ran the day giving us plenty of exciting and useful information about the Vikings. We learnt about how they lived, how they fought and how they travelled. We saw artefacts and re-enacted a battle scene. All in all it was a fantastic day and we all had lots of fun. We really enjoyed dressing up for the day and sporting the shields we had made in class. Have a look at the photos to see what we did!

Year 6 Visit to Wagamamas

Year 6 went on a trip to Wagamama in Colchester. We saw how they stored their food and learnt about the different ingredients used in the restaurant. We discovered that the restaurant is very keen to be recognised as environmentally friendly and we were taught the different ways in which the company is sustainable. We made and tried some of their fresh juices (which were delicious!) and tasted some of the more unusual flavours present in their dishes. Finally we were all given a free meal of our choice, accompanied by one of the fresh juices. An amazing and educational trip!

Year 6 Survival in Wivenhoe Woods

Year 6 went on a trip to Wivenhoe Woods with survival expert John Wills. We learnt how to hang a hammock, build a shelter, light a fire and cook bread over an open fire. Back in the classroom, we each chose an element of day and wrote a set of instructions, explaining how to carry out our chosen process.
