Iron and Fire day at Woodlea led by a talented Blacksmith!
Year 3 children have been learning about life during the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. To make this topic come to life, a professional Blacksmith, Gary, arrived at Woodlea Junior School to showcase his skills and talents to the children. The aim of the day was to engage the children to get hands-on experience of the varying metal items created and used within this historical era and to witness a demonstration of how metal tools are developed and created using stone, charcoal and heat. During the day, Gary explained to the children about the importance of Blacksmiths during the Bronze Age and Iron Age. Some of the items created by Gary included a pinnacular brooch, hooks, keyrings, a rose, torcs used by the wealthy Celts and some nails. All the children were extremely intrigued and asked many questions which Gary answered to the best of his knowledge. It was an absolutely marvellous day filled with great activities. Every child, including many teachers, had a tremendous day and were thrilled and amazed at how metal can be changed once it has been heated. Take a look at some of the photographs taken!
Stone Age at Woodlea Junior School!
Stone Age day!
In Year 3, we are currently studying about the Stone Age so we decided to hold a Stone Age day in school for the children to experience what life was actually like during this era. All the children came dressed as a Stone Age person and they had the opportunity to explore numerous activities such as jewellery making, cave painting, shelter building, archaeological dig and having their lunch around a camp fire! It was an absolutely marvellous day and all the children thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience! It left them all with imperishable, everlasting and mark making memories! A huge big thank you to all the parents for taking the time and effort to style the children in their amazing costumes.
Scooter safety training!
On Friday 22nd November, 3G took part in a scooter safety training programme which was run by the South Ribble Borough Council. The aim of the day was to improve children's confidence and stability whilst riding their scooter. The training lasted 2 hours and was taken place on the school grounds. The children had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed their session!
