Maple RoomWorking as Historians

This week in Maple

This week we have been very busy again! We have been learning more about Norwich during world war 2, cooking, doing forest schools and PE as well as all our maths and reading and writing.

Soup and bread

We made our own tomato soup and bread rolls. We sat together and enjoyed the meal at the end of the day. We learnt lots of new things especially about what yeast does and why we need it to make our bread fluffy.

All about 10!

Some of us have been learning all about the number 10 and experimenting with different ways of making it. We used a fun activity with 10 fishes to help us.

Trust

We made obstacle courses using items from the forest school area. We then had to trust our partners to help us get safely to the other end. We had to really think about what we were saying when we had to guide our friends. It was quite tricky.

The Blitz

We have looked at some parts of world war 2 this week. We have learnt about the battle of Britain, the Blitz and the bombs that hit Norwich. We looked at a map which shows were all the bombs landed in and around Norwich. We also looked at primary and secondary sources and read a news paper article about the bombings in Norwich. We used the article to find information about the bombings.
