  • Romans in Britain

    Published 01/04/22

    Year 4 had an amazing day on Wednesday when we spent the whole day pretending that we lived in a Roman town in Britain. In the photo you can see some of our soldiers marching and protecting the town from Celtic uprisings as we carried out our tasks. We had many jobs including making clay lamps and pots, crushing olives to make oil for the lamps, creating mosaics, designing frescos, crushing charcoal for writing, making wax tablets, making jewellery and creating medicines and beauty treatments at the bath house. Many thanks to the parents and older sibling helpers who made all these activities possible. Read on to find out what we did in the afternoon.

  • Happy and sad endings

    Published 17/03/22

    We have reached the end of our core text, Kensuke's Kingdom. An emotional roller-coaster of a book with an equally emotional ending (I won't give it away but do ask your child to explain why it is both happy and sad). The children have written their last piece of work based on this book which documented the change in the relationship between our two main characters.

    We have started our new science topic: sound. The children had lots of fun making string telephones this week and have learnt how sound travels as vibrations along the string. They also completed a sound walk around the school where they discovered that there was nowhere in the buildings or grounds which was completely silent. They have some interesting homework on this topic for the weekend.
