Welcome to Russet Class

Teacher: Mrs McDonnell

 

We are a mixed-age class of 29 children in Year 3 and 4 who love to investigate, be creative and learn together in a nurturing environment. In Russet Class,  we aim to make learning both exciting and challenging. Along the journey, mistakes are expected and respected, children are encouraged and supported to be increasingly independent and resilient and progress in all areas is celebrated.

 

The beginning of our Learning Journey September 2021.....

        

               

                   

 

 

 

Here are some of the things we have been up to this term.

Voyaging with the Vikings Learning Journey 

This term, we have been learning about Viking raiders, invaders and settlers. We discovered that Viking homelands were Norway, Sweden and Denmark, and that they travelled far and wide, raiding and settling areas as far away as Greenland and Newfoundland. We learned about the importance of Viking Longships to their success and the children wrote some excellent diary entries in role as Viking warriors on their first raid.

We learned about The Vikings in Britain, and how this period of history fits within the timeline of British History, and how conflicts with the Anglo-Saxons eventually led to the Danelaw. We also looked at the beliefs of the Vikings and how they lived, as well as learning about some well-known Norse myths.

A Rainbow of Dragons Learning Journey 

            At the beginning of our learning journey about dragons, we designed                and painted pictures of dragon eggs using watercolours.

A display of our work, including some fabulously detailed dragon eyes, pictures of our pet dragons and instructional manuals explaining how to care for your dragon. Well done Russet Class - fantastic work!
