Viking Experience Day

We started our new topic 'Were the Vikings vicious or victorious?' with a Viking Experience Day. An archaeologist, Mr Hammond, spent the day with us. He brought hundred of real and replica artefacts for us to study. We learnt so much and had lots of fun!

Rugby Day

On Thursday the whole school had a day of Rugby. Every class got the opportunity to learn a bit more about the sport with some representatives from the Nottingham Rugby club. Kingfisher's really enjoyed their session, especially playing different games to develop our skills.

How were the Anglo Saxons punished?

On Friday we transformed our classroom into a 'moot' which is an Anglo-Saxon court. We took it in turns to be criminals awaiting their fate. Punishments varied from having a finger cut off, become someone's slave or even death! The jury helped to decide the punishments and if they pleaded innocent the jury decided how many 'oath helpers' they needed to take an oath to say the criminal was innocent. If the criminal didn't have enough they were punished. The King and his Witan (a council of thanes and bishops), who helped him to rule, were in charge of the court. We then compared this system to what happens nowadays and decided which we thought was fairer. Everyone agreed they would much rather be alive nowawadays, not that they are planning on getting into any trouble!

Rainbow Grammar Speech Punctuation

This week we started our new adventure writing topic based on the Anglo-Saxon legend 'Beowulf'. In preparation for creating our own version of the story, we developed our use of speech punctuation using our rainbow grammar cards.

Harvest Festival

For this year's harvest festival we have been thinking about how grateful we are for having homes. We compared our experiences of having comfortable homes with those caught up this year in Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma in the United States. We read several accounts of people's experiences and tried to put ourselves into their shoes. After learning about these unfortunate people we wrote a list of things we would like to say to them if we got the opportunity to meet them. We then each created a prayer stone with these messages on. We wanted to tell these people that even though they have lost their homes they have still got all of these things in their lives. These are a few of the messages:

 

                   hope    happiness   love   courage   spirit    friends    peace   faith

 

Each stone signifies a stepping stone or building block for them to rebuild their lives and homes again. We are going to keep these stones on our prayer table to remind us how grateful we are to have lovely homes.
