We went for a walk around the village to find out about the area where we go to school.
We stopped for a drink at the village hall.
Then we posted our letters.
Class Stream went to Tesco, Quedgeley to find out about ‘food for fuel’ and learnt about foods which give us energy. We had great fun exploring the store with Theresa.
First we had to decorate a hat to wear. Theresa thought we were very clever when we answered all her questions correctly and worked out the jumbled up word.
Next we explored the fruit and veg isle. We looked for fruits and vegetables which matched all the colours of a rainbow. Can you guess what we might have written in each category?
Keith, the fishmonger told us about the different fish and we wore plastic gloves so that we could hold the mackerel, scallops, salmon, prawns, tuna and cod.
We went in the ‘walk in’ fridge and freezer-it was really cold but very exciting!!!!
We used different vegetables to make smiley faces – they tasted really yummy!
We used strawberries, raspberries, grapes and blueberries to make tasty kebabs.
What a fantastic morning-Thank you Theresa
We visited the Folk Museum in Gloucester to find out about life in the past.
First we dressed up as Victorian children
We then learnt about what it was like to go to school in Victorian times. The teacher was very scary – not like teachers today!!
We did ‘Drill’ in the yard and then had a hand and shoe inspection. We put a penny in the box so that we could go to school.
In the classroom we had to sit in rows and had a go at writing on a slate and with pen and ink. The teacher was very strict and we had to stand up or go to the back of the class if we got something wrong.
After the lesson had finished we learnt about how Victorians washed their clothes. Can you remember the names of the equipment they used?
We then looked at some other items the Victorians used to clean their homes. Can you remember what they were used for?
Finally we explored the museum. What did you like seeing best? What did you learn about life in Victorian times?
