We have had a brilliant day celebrating the King's coronation. We made our own crowns to wear to our street party lunch, carried out a treasure hunt outside where we needed to hunt down clues to find out information about the coronation and we also found out the significance of different parts of the coronation ceremony including the coronation chair, stone of Scone, St Edward's crown and the orb and sceptre. We are looking forward to spotting these important features when we watch the coronation ceremony.
We have been busy exploring different sources to try and find evidence for proving different statements about the Maya.
“Things men have made with wakened hands, and put soft life into are awake through years with transferred touch, and go on glowing for long years. And for this reason, some old things are lovely warm still with the life of forgotten men who made them.”
Beech class had a great time taking part in the St Peter's Antiques Roadshow. We used our enquiry skills to make hypotheses for what the historical artefacts might have been used for and who might have used them. We also had to decide which artefact might be the oldest/most modern/most valuable and sorted them into what we thought the chronological order might be
Beech class have been looking at the 'Bigger Picture' in our History lessons. We explored the question of where the Maya fit into our history timeline and learned about how long this period of History lasted. We also then could compare what else was going on at the same time in different parts of the world.
Researching all about the Maya using books and the internet so that we can produce our own non-chronological reports all about this interesting ancient civilization.
Beech class had an amazing experience being able to take part in a VR Prime workshop. They were able to travel to the Mayan city of Chichen Itza and see inside a temple as well as exploring what life was like in this ancient civilisation. It was wonderful to feel as if we had actually stepped back in time to this immersive world.
Beech class had a fantastic day visiting Grosvenor Chester Museum and the Roman amphitheatre. We took part in lots of hands on activities and had the opportunity to become Roman soldiers to participate in formations training.
In today's History lesson, we became tribal leaders of Britain and investigated whether we would have lost our crown or been allowed to keep it after the Romans invaded. It helped us to realise that the Romans didn't invade and conquer Britain in one fell swoop but that their invasion happened over forty years. Ella ended up being chieftain of the last tribe standing.
We worked in pairs to look closely at different sources connected to our line of enquiry of why the Romans wanted to invade Britain. We came up with some super hypotheses. We then completed a diamond ranking of what we considered the most valid reason for invading might be.
Piecing together what our new History topic is.....
Using our outdoor timeline to explore the chronology of the Ancient Romans. Where do they fit into the bigger picture? What came before? What came after? What else was happening in the world at the same time? Why do we think they came to an end?
