Roman Army Museum and Vindolanda
Year 4 had an amazing time visiting the Roman Army Museum and the Vindolanda site. We had a Latin lesson from a holographic teacher who emerged from the past, we got to see unique Roman artefacts such as the only surviving Roman helmet crest and a set of four hipposandals (Roman horse shoes). We also visited the Vindolanda site which used to be a Roman auxiliary fort. An archaeologist talked us through the site and the different artefacts that have been discovered there including writing tablets and coins.
Since it is ‘The Year of Creation’, the whole school decided to write poems about creation for National Poetry Day. Year 4 had amazing ideas linked to God creating the world and how we should look after it. Here are some examples of their super ideas:
There once was a time there was nothing at all,
No barbies, no sweets, let alone football.
One day, there was a giant man,
Who came up with a gracious plan.
His name was God and he made sheep,
And cows and dogs and frogs that can leap.
He gave us bees and fancy humming birds,
But most importantly, he gave us words.
He gave us day and night,
Oh, it was a beautiful sight!
He separated the land and the sea,
So there was a place for humans to be.
Make sure to turn off your lights,
Don’t take too many flights.
Lets not forget the most important rule of all,
And that important rule is don’t throw rubbish on the floor.
There is one earth and one earth only,
If littering continues, the world will be lonely.
So protect the earth no matter what,
Because it’s the only world we’ve got.
