What we’ve been up too…
Year 5 took part in their final gardening workshop where they combed the retted flax and spun it into fine thread using a spindle, ready for knitting with. Year five were lucky enough to have a fun Q&A session with a kilt maker, who will be using the Flax thread that Year 5 spun, to create a fabulous jumper for the flax man, who currently hangs in our school corridor.
Year 5 took an exciting trip to the Imperial War Museum to go back in time and experience what life would have been like as a child during the First World War. In groups, children completed research tasks to find out what life would have been like to live as an evacuee in 1939. Children then had the opportunity to apply what they had learnt in topic to complete tasks around the museum.
