Mince Pie Making in Class 5!

With Christmas upon us, what a better opportunity to get cooking. In small groups, we have made roughly 16 mince to share out and to take home. We found getting the breadcrumbs consistency very challenging and rolling the pastry out thin enough without it sticking to the table. Great fun!

Iron Age Hill Fort @ Cheddon

We a begun building our very own model hill fort and village in our school field. We spent some time designing our hill fort and roundhouses using the knowledge we had gather during our History lessons this term on their features. Then, we went to the school field and started digging the ramparts for our hill fort as well as gathering materials to build our roundhouses. We also got very muddy making a pit full of our 'wattle and daub' to make the walls of our roundhouses. Updates to follow soon.

Second week, we have developed our ramparts and constructed our roundhouses on top of our hill fort. We made our own 'wattle and daub'. We had a great time but a little muddy to say the least.


Aqueducts on Display in our Museum

After school, we welcomed in children and parents to wonder through our class to see our completed Roman Aqueducts as well as many other aspects of our learning this term.

Work In Progress - Roman Aqueducts

More steps forwards have been taken to the completion of our aqueducts. Working in small groups, we are following a chosen to design to bring to life.
