As part of our theme 'Night at the Museum', the children visited Chedworth Roman Villa, where the children explored artefacts from Roman times, dressed as a slave and made medicine bag,s which were used in Roman times. Also, they were given a tour of what was in the villa during Roman times and what each room was used for. A great learning experience for the children and a very enjoyable day. 

The theme chosen this term by the children will involve them looking at and focusing on history through the ages in Britain from Stone Age, including the Romans up until the Victorians. The theme has the title ‘Night at the Museum’, based on the film and book which the children are using for their literacy focus.

Welcome to Class 4!

This term our theme is 'Grand Designs', where we will be looking closely at buildings, construction and architecture. We have already looked closely at bridges, looking at different types and investigations into bridge and tower design. The children have also been in an architects shoes, looking at different perspectives and are currently deep in the design process for building new hutches for the school guinea pigs. An exciting project ahead!

Grand Designs Concern Universal Lego build challenge, raising a tremendous £152.80 for the Survive Five Appeal. A great team effort by Class 4. Well done all!

Inspired by Grand Designs live, the children are going to build a model with each brick being sponsored for 5p each to raise money for Concern Universal as part of their 'Survive Five' appeal. Sponsorship forms to be returned by Tuesday 20th October so we can collect up the required number of bricks. A fun way for the children to raise money to help other children in Africa survive above the age of five.
