This week Amber class have been completing the TASC wheel. The brief for out TASC wheel was ‘to create an artefact an Anglo Saxon would have used or worn including a join with clay.’ Below you can see the process of the TASC for the children.

So far, we are up to the implement stage and have created a variety of things. We have ships, coil mugs and pots.

 

Multiplication Table Competition

Well done to the two children from Amber class who represented Prince Edward in the Interschool Multiplication Table competition. Unfortunately, High Hazels pipped us to the post at the very last moment but we are extremely proud of ourselves and our achievements during the competition.

Multiplication Tables Competition

Prince Edward Primary School have been competing in the Interschools Multiplication Tables competition recently. The four children that have been representing Prince have been working their socks off, and it has paid off! We are through to the

FINAL!

The final will take place tomorrow and we are so excited to compete again and show off our fantastic multiplication tables knowledge.

Horrid Henry

Recently, Amber class have been loving reading Horrid Henry. We have been laughing, joking and loving reading all of the horrid thing Henry gets up to. It is definitely one of our favourite books we’ve read together so far.

Anglo Saxon Day

Yesterday, Amber class had the treat of a visit from a lady from the Anglo Saxon times. She had travelled through time just to visit us. When we first met her, we talked about the kingdoms and the kings that ruled over that area of land.

We were then lucky enough to find out about how the Anglo Saxons completed writing. Interestingly, they made their own ink and paper. We then got to have a go ourselves.

We then got to put our writing skills into action. We wrote with a feather and ink in the style lettering Anglo Saxons used. We loved it!

We then got the chance to make our axes ready for the battle to finish off our exciting day.

We got to enjoy the sunshine and play some games that Anglo Saxon’s would have played. They were very different to the games we play at home now!

We even got to learn about all the different jobs Anglo Saxon’s had to do.

This week we have worked hard on our door display. We coloured beautifully to create all the fantastic things Mr Wonka has in his chocolate room. We then decided we would make ourselves into Oompa Loompas and have one of the members of Amber class as Charlie!

What a great set of costumes Amber class and what a great day celebrating we have had. We have read our favourite books, shared our class story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory whilst relaxing on the carpet and even watched BBC World Book Day Live Lesson.
