Squirrel class invited parents and grandparents to share what they know about dinosaurs. They painted dinosaurs, visited our museum, made play dough fossils and read our leaflets about dinosaurs. The favourite activity was working carefully as a palaeontologist picking out chocolate chips from a biscuit.
The Owl and Badger class did an excellent job of sharing their learning with their parents, grandparents and other family members. The children led their parents in a variety of activities linked to our topic of Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. The children showed their parents how to weave using a loom, design a shield, make a clay pot and some Anglo-Saxon ink. They also tested their knowledge of the period on the computers by solving the clues on the quizzes the Badger class had coded. Some of the children wrote Kenning poems too and played a game to build a longhouse. The parents and children enjoyed looking at their topic books together discussing what they had learnt.
Before our Celebration started we enjoyed a delicious Viking lunch. Our cook Karen prepared a Nordic stew and Longboat potatoes and a tasty Viking Apple and Honey pudding.
