Here are some photographs of our learning from the academic year 2022 to 2023







                                                                        We had an incredible afternoon at Chelwood. River class worked as a team to build dens, everyone got stuck in collecting branches to build up the walls. One group even made a roof with leaves. We then enjoyed some smores at the campfire.  
This week we had a fantastic day at the Bristol Museum and gallery. We learnt about the daily lives of Ancient Egyptian through studying artefacts. We also had time to explore the rest of the museum and gallery.  .
In our discover class this week, we have analysed images from Ancient Egypt to discover more about their lives. Inspired by our class book, The girl who rowed the ocean, we had a lesson on rope knots that would be used when at sea. River class learnt how to a tie a figure of eight, reef knot and even attempted the tricky bowline knot.
