Gabriel, with the help of his dad, has made a replica German sniper rifle for his World War 2 homework. He says it took him and his dad between 2 and 3 weeks to complete. Excellent work Gabriel!
Remember Year 6, the deadline for your homework on World War 2 is the 2nd of December.
Yesterday we had a lovely trip to Cosford RAF Museum! The children enjoyed looking at lots of different planes and discovering how planes work through lots of Scientific investigations. We were extremely lucky to see the Spitfire which was designed by Reginald Mitchell (who we will be learning about later in the term) and to try on different pilot outfits from World War One and Two.
Year 4 had a fantastic visit to the DEWA Roman Experience in Chester yesterday.
The children took part in a Roman Solider patrol, learning all about the military tactics used by the Romans, as well as the armour and weaponry that was used to help the Roman Empire conquer so much of Europe. We visited the Amphitheatre and learnt more about gladiatorial combat and also visited the museum to learn more about Roman life. We found out about food, medicine, the bath houses and more before seeing all of the fantastic archaeological evidence that has been found in Chester. The children were brilliant ambassadors for our school and received many compliments from the staff at DEWA. Well done Year 4!
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!
