4 Pine

 

Pine class is a focused and engaging place to learn and from the minute you step into our classroom, you won't fail to be inspired and motivated by the rich learning environment developed with the children. We put the children at the centre of everything we do and thus dedicate our day to a broad and engaging curriculum indoors and out!

 

During the year, watch us grow in confidence as we push ourselves out of our comfort zone to rise to new challenges, maintaining a Growth Mindset.

Today the children learnt that the life of a Viking wasn’t always easy. They started their history unit on Woden's day (Wednesday) with Viking Day. The day began by donning fur-lined costumes and horned helmets (not historically correct, but looked fierce). The most celebrated (and perhaps the loudest) part of Viking day was when the the children practised their pillaging. They used the silent assault tactics employed by the Vikings of old to “raid” the mighty hammer belonging to Thor!  ~ many were successful.

After working up barbaric appetites they consumed a hearty roast school dinner. Maybe at home they could try eating a meal exclusively with the use of knives, in true Viking fashion.
