How to Help Your Children


In Computing this term we have been learning how to record and edit voices to create a podcast about places in Theydon Bois. We used Audacity to record and edit our voices. We have also added background music.

Learning poetry for performance

We learned several Christmas poems and analysed the structure, the rhythm and rhyme before practising them for performance. We evaluated eachother's performances paying attention to pitch, pace, rhythm, volume and expression.

Putting up our robin Christmas tree decorations. We used our design technology skills: cutting, folding and fastening 2D shapes to create or 3D robins

Stone Age Day

A Travelling Natural History Museum visited years 3 and 4 last week.  Children had the opportunity to meet Cave Man Pete who showed them real and reconstructed artefacts from the Stone Age. They learned about the mega fauna Stone Age people hunted (and were hunted by)! 

There was much excitement at the chance to take part in an archaeological dig and we were amazed to uncover the remains of a sabre tooth cat. Everyone had the chance to make plaster casts of fossilised animal footprints and to try out their archery skills.  Under cover of darkness, the children recreated cave paintings based on photos of the Lascaux Cave. Stone Age jewellery was a real hit and children enjoyed personalising their necklaces with decorated 'bones' and 'teeth' made from card.

A fascinating and informative day was had by all!
