8.10.18 Harold Godwinson is believed to have died after being shot in the eye with an arrow at the Battle of Hastings! We designed helmets that might have better protected him, whilst considering other important factors such as needing air holes, needing to be comfortable and needing to look intimidating to our enemies. We then created them using paper mache before painting them in dark, camouflaging colours.

25.9.19 Kimmeridge have been learning all about Kings and Queens. When Edward the Confessor died in 1066 he left no heirs, and there were many claimants desperate to take the throne. This resulted in many fierce battles. We went outside onto the field to recreate the Battle of Hastings between William of Normandy and Harold Godwinson! It was very gory and many soldiers died. It seemed like Harold was going to win when rumours spread that William had been defeated. However, in the end, Harold Godwinson was shot with an arrow through the eye and the very much alive William the Conqueror was victorious! 

19.9.19 May I start by saying what a fantastic start all of your children have made to the new academic year! I have loved my first few weeks in Kimmeridge Class and the children have been brilliant and made me feel very welcome.

This term Kimmeridge class have been learning all about Ancient Egypt!
So far we have:- Used Google maps and atlases to study the physical geography of Egypt- Researched the life of Tutankhamun using tablets, computers and non-fiction texts- Written an informative fact file about Tutankhamun using a range of different exciting sentence types- Completed an ‘archaeological dig’ to retrieve and make inferences about how Tutankhamun’s tomb was found- Began the process of mummifying our class tomatoes
Our next project will be to write an informative newspaper article about the day Tutankhamun’s body was found! So far the children have enjoyed interviewing the little boy who discovered the entrance, the famous archaeologist Howard Carter and very wealthy Lord Carnarvan.
Keep an eye out for our historical articles which will be published next week!

27.11.18
In support of centenary commemorations across the country, Kimmeridge class have been learning about the Great War. On Wednesday 21st November, Kimmeridge class replaced their red uniform for 1910s costume as they experienced what it might have been to be a wartime evacuee. After completing a history fact finding mission in the morning, the children completed a range of hands on practical activities such as cooking, knitting and gardening in the school allotment. The children had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories about family members who were part of the war effort.

Lest we forget.

18.10.18 Growth Mindset 
One of our focuses this term has been to develop a growth mindset attitude to our learning. During our growth mindset lessons, the children have been specially learning about to effectively collaborate, empathise, listen and persevere.
It is fantastic to hear so many children using the power of ‘yet’ in their everyday learning language.
Take a look through the below gallery of our growth mindset garden and growth mindset brains made out of salt dough.
