Back to the Stone Age!
The Woodpeckers have been learning about The Stone Age. They have made some beautiful necklaces out of clay, to look like bones and teeth.
Stone Age Art
Take a look at the Art we have produced this year, inspired by our Stone Age Topic! Click the pictures to enlarge them.
Dover Museum Visit
Today we thought about how we could design and make a lighthouse. We learnt that the light goes on and off, to warn passing ships of dangerous rocks. We used our prior knowledge of circuits to make an electrical circuit to light the bulb. We investigated how to make a switch, so that the light could be turned on and off.
Tsunami in a Tray
On Tuesday The Romans invaded Canterbury! The Woodpeckers visited the Beaney Museum and the Roman Museum to learn about Roman artefacts found in Canterbury, Roman technology and the Roman Army. We had the opportunity to dress like a Roman, visit the site of old Watling Street and a large section of Roman wall still standing in Canterbury!
Woodpeckers Play Golf!
The Woodpeckers were invited to a Shepway Sports Event at Etchinghill Golf Club last Thursday. With other schools, children participated in a variety of activities, using putters and wedges. They developed hand / eye coordination and had fun at the same time. It was a beautiful day and all enjoyed the fly-past by a Spitfire or two!
Visit to Wingham Wildlife Park
The Woodpeckers had an excellent day at Wingham Wildlife Park. Celeste commented, "I loved meeting the real 'Pickle'” who our Class Mascot is named after. Pickle was so happy to see us and showed us some tricks, making us all clap! Teddie said, "This was the first time I had seen an orang-utan and I enjoyed watching the greedy one gathering all the food and ice-pops for himself!”
