Year 4 Parent Drop-In
We had a fabulous morning, with our grown ups making and testing out different catapult designs, as part of our Romans topic. We followed instructions to create two different catapults, and tested how effective they were at firing missiles, just like the Romans would have done.
The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing this experience with their adults!
Roman's for the Day!
Year 4 had an amazing day when we were visited by Lucius the Roman Legionary on Wednesday. He took us on a journey back in time, to show us what life was like in the ruthless Roman army. We had lots of fun investigating artefacts and taking part in role-play and games. We thoroughly enjoyed our training as new recruits for the Roman Legion. We learnt all about military dress, armour and equipment, and worked as a team for drill practice and to perform military formations, including a testudo.
We also investigated Roman entertainment and visited the amphitheatre, where we watched battles between gladiators and beasts from across the globe.
Our understanding of Romans was thoroughly enhanced by our experience, and we can't wait to learn more about our exciting topic!
Year 4 trip to BCLM
Year 4 had a fantastic day out at the Black Country Living Museum on Wednesday 19th April. We explored the site, looking at the mines, Victorian houses and shops and even had a lesson in the Victorian school. A great day was had by all!
