Science Activity Tuesday 23rd November

Today in Science we had a secret mission to free our dinosaurs! Unfortunately, an ice monster came to school last night and frozen some of our toy dinosaurs. Luckily, we thought of lots of ways to rescue them. We used hair dryers and hot water to try and melt the ice. We used toy hammers and spoons to try and smash the ice. Eventually, we managed to rescue all of the dinosaurs and returned them back to their homes.

Fressingfield Reflection Shed

A big thank you to some of our Year 5s, who helped to paint the interior of our Reflection Shed.

And an even bigger thank you to all our Shed Monitors, who have happily spent some of their lunchtimes overseeing children who spend time in our Shed.Last half-term’s theme, Rainbows, was really enjoyed by everybody.

This half-term’s theme is Advent or The Coming.  We are very excited to be sharing this with you all!

What great Greek urns you have made, Congo Class!

Who would have believed that a Year 4/5 class would be able to make such original, creative and diverse Greek urns as these?  Well done!  Once we had learned what these urns were used for (any kind of carrying and storage, basically), we then set about learning, firstly, the pinch pot technique and secondly, the coil technique.  We could see how the coil technique took a lot longer and was fiddlier, but it made our pots so much more rigid.  We had some great shaping from all of you – and some of you even added handles to your urns.  We then used imagery from genuine Greek urns to find out more about everyday life in Greece, learning about issues as diverse as Slavery, the Role of Women and Leisure and Pleasure in Greek Society.  We realised what a sophisticated society the Greek people were.
