Willow Class had a wonderful day visiting Wollaton Hall. We investigated the Tudor kitchen and learnt many things about sugar and spice. Wollaton is our local site of historic interest so our Tudor day showed us how the house would have been when it was first opened in 1588! We had a Tudor inspired lunch (with as little plastic as possible) and even learnt a Tudor dance to show Miss Allen.
Here is our progression in History display showcasing work from the whole school.
As part of Geography Awareness Week Willow Class undertook a virtual holiday.
We used the atlas to work out where we wanted to go and google maps to plan our activities.
Once we were on holiday we flew in our imaginary plane, visited the sites (virtually) and tried a variety of Italian foods. There were some mixed responses to the food but the pizza was definitely the favourite!
