This week, we finalised our roundhouse presentations and shared them with the class. We had to summarise our research and share it with the class, ensuring that we were speaking clearly and confidently so others could learn from what we had found out.
As a result of creating our fantastic presentations, we were treated to a very muddy morning of making our own mini-roundhouses! We started by going into the garden to hunt for the materials we needed. We collected twigs, branches, plants and then brought them all back to our house-building area. We started by making circluar posts and then used the weaving skills we'd learnt at Burghley House to make the walls. Then came the messy part... we got muddy! We used wet mud to fix the walls in place. We were not afraid to get mucky!
We were really proud of our mini-roundhouses and really proud of the mess we'd made! Keep an eye out for more photos which will soon be added to the school gallery section of the website.
This week, we also completed our reading challenge! By 11am on Friday (our last reading challenge day!) we had read 150 books! That means that next week we will be having our film afternoon and a special Stone Age day. We can't wait!
