Thank you

Dear Year 5,

On behalf of the Year 5 teaching team, I wanted to say thank you so much to you and your families for your kind words and generous gifts. They are much appreciated. It has been our absolute privilege to be able to teach you not once but twice during your time at Wroxham. You are all delightful and we have loved our time with you.

Please come and visit us next year and remember to keep on reading. Have a brilliant summer.

Final Forest School

We spent our final forest school building a bonfire from the branches and wood removed from the big pond area. You all worked brilliantly together to ensure that the wood was the correct size to go on the bonfire.  We finished the session by toasting marshmallows and having a little sing song.  What a team!

Greek Laurel Wreaths

Today, we learnt about the history behind Greek laurel wreaths. Traditionally, this would be horseshoe shaped and made from olive twigs and would be worn on the head. The Greek god Apollo wore one on his head. In Ancient Greece, wreaths were given to special people such as winners of sports events. Today they are still presented at the Olympics which, of course, originated in Ancient Greece. We made our own wreaths from leaves, branches, bark and twigs in Forest School.

Today, we have explored the theory of the ancient Greek, Euclid. Euclid discovered that the triangle was the strongest shape and used this information to influence architecture in ancient Greece. We investigated the rigidity of various shapes and then tried reinforcing then by adding triangles. Here are some photos:
