This week in Humanties, Year 3 learnt about how fire was used during pre-history. We discussed how fire was used for warmth and cooking but also progressed to being used for making weapons. We built our own fires and role played how our fire would have been used.
Today, Birch Class in Year 6 took part in a 5-minute French disco dancing brain-break; not only did it give us a chance to move our bodies and get our energy levels back up, but at the same time we also revised some French vocabulary and it made everyone feel great - dancing is so good for your physical and mental wellbeing!
As part of their homework, Year 3 had the opportunity to use the VR headsets at High Street to see Stonehenge! They described what they could see and knew lots of information about the English Heritage site from their learning within school already. Even some of their grown ups got involved!
Can you make a long sound, like a hissing snake?
Year 1 have been learning a song about animals, and using it to work on their beat finding skills. They have been 'moving like the music' with their musical statues game, and learning about the effects of making music faster and slower.
Today, we put our animal sounds in our song and moved like the animals. Would a long snake hissssssssss be a short sound or a long sound?
Would a small puppy make a high pitched bark, or a low pitched bark?
Would an Elephant make a LOUD sound or a quiet sound?
Here are Lime Class being snakes and elephants!

Year 6 Elm music lesson!
Year 6 enjoyed a wonderful music lesson in The Lodge today.
We practised a pentatonic scale, staying in time and making up our own melodies. We even tried to copy each other’s melodies and add in some percussion.

As part of Bannockburn's focus on having healthy lifestyles, the children are often seen out on the playground at Manor Way completing the Daily Mile. On Wednesday Year 6 Elder class were spotted out on the playground with Mrs Stone.
This week in our computing lessons, we used role play scenarios to discuss the importance of staying safe online. We created different situations and acted them out in order to choose the most appropriate response to staying safe whilst surfing the web.
