Hampton Court Palace

On the first of November I went to Hampton court palace with 4F and 4R.We got on the couch and travelled for two ours. When we got there everyone was exited because we could all see the palace. We started to walk towards the palace and we could see the tudor rose on a flag. We walked through a golden leaf vine and it led us to Henry viii kitchens. Sudnly a man in a tudor suit popped up and took us into the kitchens. The first kitchen he took us into was the rousting room. The rousting room was very small and could only fit 28 pepole in and that was not including 4R. The rousting room yousto have a fire place but they blocked it of because it was dandrouse.

The next kitchen was the the boiling room and inside it had lots of different plants like rosemary, thyme, coriander and onions. When I was looking around in that section, Carmen found a pot and was being funny by pretending to be a maid so she got a long onion stick and stirred it into the bowl on the floor. The next kitchen we went into was the fire place. In the fire place there was a really big chimney that we all got a chance to see. There was also a lot of fake plastic meat on the tables and everyone was touching them. After that the man showed us how to make a fire. His assistant came and moulded some hay into a ball. And then he got some metal and iron and scraped it against each other and he made flames.

VE Day

Last Friday, the Year 3 children celebrated the end of their Dig for Victory topic with a VE Day celebration at school.P1020892 - Copy

Megan: “VE Day celebrates the end of World War II in Europe (VE stands for Victory in Europe.  Megan used to think that it meant ‘Victory for England’, so she has learnt something new).  We usually celebrate on the 8th of May every year but our celebration was at the end of our topic in July.  At the end of World War II, lots of communities had street parties, where they celebrated the end of the war together.  Before our street party, we pretended to be different countries or dictators and we did a drama activity where we  learnt the order in which different countries joined the war.”

Abdullahi: “I am going to explain how we got ready for our street party.  We made Union Flags to decorate the playground and worked in a team to put out the tables and chairs.  We had food to eat like biscuits, cake and sandwiches.  I also drank lemon juice that was so sour, it made me run around the playground.  In World War II, they didn’t have very much food, so people had a little ration book to make sure the food was shared out fairly.  This was because the Germans used submarines to attack the boats with food on them.  I am glad I did not live during World War II, the bombs would have been scary. Some of the bombs had teeth on them.”
