Ancient Greek Olympics

This afternoon, in history, we learned about the sports the Ancient Greeks competed in and the history of the Greek Olympics.  Once we were familiar with the sports, we went outside and took part in our Ancient Greek olympics during PE!  Boy did those discus fly!

Ancient Greek Theatre

This term we have had a wonderful visit from Partake History.  We learned all about Jason and the golden fleece and how it fits into Ancient Greek mythology.  We also had the chance to perform the story, with masks, swords and even a 4 headed hydra!  We had a great afternoon, having so much fun, we didn't even notice we were learning.

Choosing materials to create a boat

This week in science, Chestnut Class have been choosing the best materials to make a boat which is waterproof and floats!  This was not as easy as it sounds.  Each member of the class worked well as a group to create some excellent boats.  Once our work was complete, we had a good think about what which materials would produce an even better boat.  What do you think?

Chestnut Class food art

This term, Chestnut Class have been studying food in all of it's finest forms.  In art, they have been studying artists who use food to create art.  One of their biggest influences has been Giuseppe Arcimboldo.  After studying the methods, creating a design, today was the day they created their final art installations.  They look good enough to eat!

Chestnut Class visit to Heckington Windmill

As part of our Scrumdidlyumptious topic, we are looking at food, from farm to plate and studying the history of bread.  This meant that we could visit a very impressive feature of our local community, Heckington Windmill.  We were lucky enough to go right up to the top, which was very scary, and learn how the flour is made through every arduous stage.  We were also lucky enough to visit the brewery to learn how beer is made.  It was a very exciting and educational morning.
