Thank you Bella for the great Earth Day project that you and your dad produced. I liked the curlew; one of the sounds I associate with Hamsterley School is the haunting cry of the curlews.
Freya has sent in a photo with her Earth Day and St. George’s Day posters on display beside her rainbow.
Will has found a very wide range of wild plants.
Ewan has been investigating Roman shields (scutum) and has made his own replica shield.
Emily and Mirren have been designed Roman shields.
They have also created Medal design’s for bravery, linked to the NHS.
Sebastian and Finn have sent in their Roman Projects.
Sebastian has added some more information to extend his project: More info from Seb!
And here is Finn’s extra information. I’m very impressed – he’s produced a really comprehensive research report.
Freya really enjoyed the VE project ideas from Mr T. She especially enjoyed finding out about her great-grandfather’s role in the RAF. She also found it interesting learning about the home front and women’s roles – especially the land girls- digging for victory and how they managed with food rations. She used her Great Grandma’s original BeRo book to bake for her celebration tea party and interviewed her Nanny who recalled being at a VE Day street party in 1945, aged 5yrs old. As you can see from the photos she really got into the spirit of things!!
Max has drawn this excellent sketch of a Roman soldier.
Max and Rory have spent some of their time learning useful life skills. I was impressed by their repurposing of an old boat into a stylish garden seat. Max learnt how to use the sewing machine to make the cushions. Well done!
We have a new moon on Friday 22nd May, and Mirren has completed her moon phase diary and moon project, The moon and space. I’m impressed by her research into the moons around other planets (and dwarf planets) in the solar system.
Emily has also been busy growing edible plants. The cress, mustard and broccoli shoots not only were an interesting science project, they also apparently tasted delicious in a sandwich.
