Writing in runes

Owls thoroughly enjoyed their first trip up to Forest School this year. We explored our extended territory and the children enjoyed hunting for Viking runes hidden around the site which they used to decode a secret message. We also had the opportunity to write our own names in runes using crushed blackberries as our ink!

Back in class, the children have been using a thesaurus to search for exciting vocabulary to use in our ‘Heading Home’ poems. We’ve been very impressed with their creative ideas. In our Maths work we looked at how to represent numbers in different ways.
