Following our work on time lines last week, I thought some of you might like to show off your chronological and mathematical skills by making up a question or two about the different periods in history that we looked at. You can make it as easy or as difficult as you like! I’ll give you the key dates again to help:
Stone Age: 15,000BC to 2500BC Bronze Age: 3000BC to 800BC Iron Age: 800BC to AD43
Celts: 800BC to AD43 Romans: AD43 to AD410 Saxons: AD449 to AD1066
Vikings: AD793 to AD1066 Normans: AD1066 to AD1134 Middle Ages: 1154 to 1485
Tudors: 1485 to 1603 Civil War & Revolution: 1603 to 1714
Empire & Sea Power: 1714 to 1837 Victorians: 1837 to 1901 WWI: 1914 to 1918
WWII: 1939 to 1945
I’ll start you off with a couple of examples:
For how many years did the Saxon and Viking Ages overlap?
After the Bronze Age ended, how long was it before the Romans arrived?
Now that you’ve written your diary entry for Loki, could you write one for Iduna about the same events? Remember to include her thoughts and feelings: what her thoughts were when the trees started talking; whether she ever trusted Loki in the first place and how she felt when she was captive in Jotunheim. Can you include any humour too?
In a week of reading and writing creative funny poems , year 6 joined forces with year 5 and created poems better than Michael Rosen!
This week in marvellous Maths, some people did perfect percentages! Also, a group of year 6 children did posters of division rules and they turned out to be very colourful! Finally, we all did daring decimals and we all cracked it!
D.A.R.E was best of all: this week we learned about Cyber-Bullying ! Remember don’t bully!
Some people went to church to sing at a concert; they sang 5 songs with Apollo 5 who made music with only their voices and mouths!
We also did Christmas cards and we really enjoyed it! We did the Winter scene!
Half of us read with Mrs Howard while everyone else was doing Viking sagas like Loki the Joker and Apples of Iduna! Which was your favourite part of the week?

Some photos of our last activity – zip wire!
The sun has gone down and we are enjoying our last night around the camp fire. We are looking forward to our last morning, which will be very busy as we take on the zip wire!
Today’s activities began with building and trying out our own rafts. We had an amazing time. We’ve also tried out the high ropes. Tonight we are having a camp fire sing song!
The children have just enjoyed a cooked breakfast and are now all set for today’s activities.
The children are looking forward to a busy day. Today’s activities include: nightline, archery, laser, fencing and the famous leap of faith. Who will dare to take the leap? Check back for photos later. 🙂
