School Work

Lisa Tomlinson, from Glyncoed Infant School, Pentwyn, Cardiff sent us examples of her class's work. She commented, 'My school is not yet linked up to the internet, so from home I printed out the pictures from Harry's story, then scanned them into my computer to enlarge them to make a big book version of the story, which I then taught as part of our literacy time.'

'As well as the story. I included some pictures of products that used to be available, to develop my children's sense of historical enquiry.'

'In our school museum we have a pair of butter patters. The children had great fun guessing what they were. One guess was a tool for applying cement to bricks!'

'The photos show some of my children with Mr Guy our school caretaker (who is also a school governor with special interest in history). They are making tea packets and using plasticine as butter to shape and wrap. I'm also sending you an example of work by Alice age 5.'
