Nursery had some special visitors. Animal Antics introduced some of their animals to the children. Mrs Britton said ‘the children had a great time meeting them and they all had a go at petting and holding the animals, they thought the millipede felt like a hair brush!’.
Children in year 1 finished their superhero topic today with superhero celebrations! They all looked fantastic. What would you do if you were a superhero?
Year 6 have been exploring the different roles taken on by members of Mayan Society. Children worked in groups to become Rulers, Priests, Farmers and Slaves. They researched what life was like for their assigned role and carried out a debate as to who was the most important. All children came up with incredibly convincing arguments using historical facts but the farmers declared victorious! The photo shows a version of a pyramid representing the Mayan hierarchy.

To enhance year 4’s topic on the Romans they visited Binchester Roman Fort to experience Roman times. The class explored the impressive remains of a Roman bath house and walked in the footsteps of soldiers around the remains of the Commander’s House. They became archaeologists and excavated earth to find Roman artefacts, had a chance to dress as Roman soldiers, designed mosaics and made clay pots.
