This term Pearl class has started to learn about Vikings. We have been reading the book Beowulf as a class and we have been taking it in turns to read to the rest of the class. It has been fantastic to hear all of our amazing readers.
We have also been experiencing what it was like to be a Viking, We have spent time outside creating pretend fires to share Viking stories and created Viking boats from a paper template. That proved to be quite a challenge but the pictures show that it was a great success! Just as Pearl class thought that was it for the fun... we surprised them with the opportunity to make ‘Viking bread’. We had great fun creating lots of mess and getting sticky with the mixture. We even had our own Mary Berry teaching us how to make this bread.. (Yes this was Mrs Smith). The best part was eating it covered in honey. It was so good that everyone took the recipe home!
This week Pearl class have been exploring the senses. They have looked at the differences between life now and back in Viking times . Today we went exploring on the playground to use our 5 senses. Some of the children decided to try tasting leaves and brick…(Only pretending of course). After we came back into class we discussed what we saw using amazing describing words and super sentences. This is all in preparation for writing letters as Beowulf as he sails to save the villagers from Grendel. Here are some photos of Pearl class exploring.
