  • Year Six are evacuated.

    Published 25/09/18

    What a great day we have had - learning how to deal with an air raid, preparing our sandwiches, being evacuated by steam train to the countryside, experiencing evacuee selection by characters from the local community before returning six years later to a platform of smiling parents!

    We hope that the children have enjoyed today and feel they understand what happened to many children during WW2.

  • Year 4 and the Romans

    Published 09/09/18

    Year Four are having lots of fun learning more about the Romans in our Topic lessons this term. We began by working our non-chronological reports last week and have been learning a new text based on the Roman baths. We have learnt some really tricky vocabulary, such as tepidarium, caldarium, frigidarium and hypocaust system. Our Topic display area is looking great with all of the Roman villas that the children have been making. They are looking superb! The children have been so creative and it is lovely to see the different designs they have used to decorate their villas. J
