Wildwood Escot - Wednesday 19th December 2019

 

On Wednesday we went to Wildwood Escot where we met some Celts who told us all about life as a Celt. We went on a woodland walk to see the different animals that would have been roaming free during the Roman times, such as Lynx, wolves and boars. We also had a go at different Celtic activities such as wood and metal work and got to look at the houses that Celts would have lived in. We had an absolutely fantastic time!

Light and Shadow - Wednesday 12th December 2018

 

This week we have been learning about how shadows are made. We have been investigating this using the torches and objects. We discovered that shadows are made when light is blocked by an object. Light only travels in straight lines so when light is blocked by an object the light cannot pass through. 

Scaling - Wednesday 5th December 2018

 

This week in Robins we have been looking at scaling an object, we did this using Jack and the Giant. We discussed that if Giant is 3x taller than Jack then Jack must be a third of the height of Giant. We used resources to represent this. Check out our learning below. 

Building a Chariot! Friday 30th November 2018

 

After learning about chariot races last week, we decided to make our own chariots! We used our D&T skills to attach the wheels and dowels to the main structure. We designed the front using traditional Roman colours.
