Visit from Carymoor Environmental Trust and Fruit Top Trumps.
We thoroughly enjoyed a visit from Carymoor Environmental Trust where we were lucky enough to enjoy a workshop during the morning! We looked at the journey some food items take to make it from where it is grown all the way into our homes! We also looked at how we can choose a lunch with much less wasteful packaging. In the afternoon, we looked more closely at the journey of popular fruits like; strawberries, raspberries and apples. We made Fruit Top Trump Cards with this information and then went outside to enjoy a fruity picnic!
Orienteering Festival at Norton Manor Camp.
During the Orienteering Festival we practiced how to orientate and use maps before we set off on a journey into the woods to collect as many markers as we could, while following the courses and making it back safely! We also worked together as a team to navigate the location of a series of muddled up milk bottles, which had a stamper we needed to make marks on our team paper.
Trip to Magdalen Farm to learn more about biodiversity, food chains, classification keys and habitats.
Making our Roman shields and testing the strength of the Roman arch design.
Roman Soldier Marching
Using the shields that we had designed and made, we practiced marching as a legion following the commands that were in Latin. This included the Testudo (tortoise) and percute (charge).
The Roman Testudo (totoise)!
