Roman Banquet

User Rating:  / 5

Last week we were so lucky! We got the opportunity for two Roman specialists to come into school and share their knowledge about the Romans with us. The hall was transformed into a Roman banquet with tables, foods, slaves and entertainers. It was so much fun to dress up, touch some Roman artefacts and eat some traditional foods. We had the chance to try olives, figs, grapes and dates, some of us were very surprised with how they tasted!

In science we have been looking at and making food chains. We have been learning many things including;

  • The arrows on the food chain show what is eaten by what and the flow of energy
  • The difference between prey and predators
  • That all food chains start with a producer (any plant)

Rainforest experiment

This week we have been experimenting to see how plants grow in the rainforest. We planned and carried out our experiments in groups and are now regularly making observations of our plants to see how they are changing. Next week, we will be analysing the growth and drawing conclusions about the climate and grwoing conditions in the rainforest.

We’ve had lots of fun using the laptops to research many different species of monkey. Some of they looked very peculiar, they all have different characteristics. For example,  Emperor Tamarin has a  tail that is 41 cms long, it also has a long, white moustache and lives for about 17years.

What a brilliant start to the new term, this week we have all been on a trip to the Botanical Gardens. This trip was an excellent way to start our rainforest topic! During the day we learnt the location of the tropical rainforests, we looked at examples of adaptation (both plants and animals) and we were able to explore some plant products like, cocoa pods and coffee. The whole experience has left us really excited to learn a lot more about the rainforests.

Here are some pictures of the day.

Brass Concert

We had the opportunity to show what we have learned through out weekly brass lessons. Thank you to everybody who came along to see the concert, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! We demonstrated the notes that we have learned a variety of tunes. We were then able to entertain you with a range of Christmas songs which we played and sang along to. We're all looking forward to next term when we can learn even more notes and play even more tunes.
