Y4CL visit to Welsh Bicknor (106 images)

After weeks (if not months!) of anticipation, Year 4 have taken part in a tremendous three- day residential visit to Welsh Bicknor. Our time was packed from morning to night with fantastic activities and experiences. Much of the learning during the visit supported this term’s Science work about Living Things. We had the chance to explore the forest habitat and search for the wildlife it supports, and then take samples back to base to examine more closely under microscopes. We explored the demands of the local environment further with an adventurous hike and some very popular den building. Back at the Youth Hostel, the team took very good care of us with delicious food and fun activities like bread making. They also led us in a selection of challenges, from a ‘night line’ to a giant marble run, that put tough demands on our teamwork and communication. (For some, though, the biggest challenge of the week was getting the cover onto their duvet!) We came back, exhausted, muddy and full of wonderful memories of our time away together.

Y4 visit Chedworth Roman Villa (33 images)

Our visit to Chedworth Roman Villa was divided into three fascinating parts. The excellent staff gave us a guided tour of the remains and helped us imagine our way back 2,000 years to when Chedworth was a busy, wealthy Roman residence. In the education centre, we became archaeologists, examining and sorting genuine Roman artefacts from the site - we even touched the fingerprints left in an ancient tile by a naughty Roman child! There was hard work, too, as we were temporarily ‘enslaved’ and taught to produce medicine bags for our Roman owners. It was amazing to find out about the Roman history of our own local area.
