Year 4 had an excellent visit to Vindolanda and The Roman Army Museum. We had a Latin class from a virtual teacher, saw many Roman artefacts, learned more about different Roman emperors and even got to experience what it is like to fire an arrow from a bow. 

When we visited the Vindolanda site, the children were amazed at the size of the ruins and couldn't believe how long about they were built! What a great, information filled day we had! 

History Timelines -Florence Nightingale

The children have been learning about the lives of Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. They had to put the events of Florence Nightingale's life into chronological order. 

Year 2 - A Victorian Seaside Holiday

The children in Year 2 have been finding out about Victorian holidays and comparing them to holidays in the 1960's and the present day. As part of their learning they had a Victorian day. Within the day their were lots of activities based on a seaside holiday in the late 1800's. They made a picnic based on what would have been available at the time such as home made lemonade, jam sandwiches and homemade bread.


The children also made puppets as part of the entertainment that would have been found at this time. 

Year 3 - Stone Age to Iron Age

It was a great day and were were able to use all the information we were given in our writing back at school

Year 4 Anglo Saxon Day

Year 4 enjoyed our Anglo Saxon visitor. He taught us how and why the Anglo Saxons settled in Britain and allowed us to handle the weapons used by them. We imagined we were about to go into Battle and settle in one of the five Kingdoms in Britain. It really brought our topic to life.
