Today, Year 6 have been extremely busy putting the final touches to their spitfire art work.

Soon we will be updating the entrance to our classroom so keep looking up to see if any spitfires fly past.

Thank you to all of the adults who helped us to get started at our recent transition morning.

Year 4 Become Virtual Tourists!

To help prepare us for our writing this week, Mr Hunt’s class became virtual tourists today! We are going to be writing a piece of travel writing, linking in to our History topic on The Romans. Today we all took a virtual visit to The Colosseum in Rome, using the iPads to explore a range of 360 degree photographs. It helped us to familiarise ourselves with the historic building, and see what it is like to visit today. The children were making notes of the things that they could see and lots of fantastic adjectives were noted, ready to create a wonderful piece of writing on Thursday. Well done Year 4!

A Real Test-udo For Our Parents!

Year 4 enjoyed a wonderful start to the day as some of our parents and carers came in to help us create our own Roman shields – or scutum.

Children created their own design and worked brilliantly to bring it to life. We created our own testudo (tortoise) formation for our final photograph.

Many thanks to all adults who came to visit us today, you made our day, and well done to the children for being superstars!
