The children had a great time completing their exercise circuit this morning with Darren Challis.  The children were surprised at how long a minute lasted for but did really well and everyone completed all the exercises - even the teachers!  Thank you for all your support in sponsoring the children.  The money the children have raised needs to in by next Wednesday at the latest (20th March).  We hope you enjoy the photos!

Year 4 trip to Canterbury


The children all had a great time on their trip to Canterbury.  We visited the Beaney Museum where the children were able to handle different Anglo-Saxon artefacts.  They wrote about them and drew some very detailed drawings.  

The children then explored the Roman Museum with great excitement and were amazed when they saw part of an actual Roman villa!  They completed an archaeology workshop and were able to try different costumes, dressing up in togas and Roman armour.

The children have worked really hard at home and have produced some lovely homework!  We are really looking forward to seeing what the children can produce in term 4.  Well done to all of you!  Here are some examples of the models that have been made.


We had great fun designing the sleeves for our torches then making the circuit for lighting it.
