Maple RoomUncategorisedWorking as Historians

This week in Maple class

Working as historians 

We learnt about Roman gods and godessess and created our own top trump cards based on what we found from our research. We then enjoyed playing them during our golden time.

 

This week we began our museum exhibit. We are creating a applique display to show the settlers that have come to Norwich throughout history. We used natural things to create a dye for our backing cloth.

To get ready for creating our applique display we practiced our sewing skills.

We planned our applique designs by drawing them and then creating them from card.

We thought about some of our happy memories and made a sand jar using different colours to represent different memories.

We also learnt about what fairness, equality and equity mean using this picture so help show it.

JE: The Anglo-Saxons came across to England on wooden boats when the Romans left.
