Last Friday we remembered all the men and women who gave their lives up for us during World War 1 and World War 2. We came dressed up in uniforms from World War 1 and wrote our own poems to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. The pictures below reflect our poems and the day.

Fairy tales with a twist story maps
On Wednesday we launched our Roman topic with a day filled with fun and activities. We did three activities, shield, breastplate and helmet making and followed this up in the afternoon learning how to form a turtle, orb and other defensive formations that were used by the Roman army in battle. Altogether it was a fantastic day. Please see some pictures from the day below.
On Friday 24th March 2017 Year 4 visited the Roman fortress in Caerleon, South Wales. It was a memorable trip. The children were able to see a real amphitheater, and Roman barracks and communal baths, try on real armor and learn how Roman children would have been taught. In addition they were able to see a real Roman skeleton encased in a stone coffin and handle various Roman artifacts. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the day.
