Below you can read our termly newsletter, catch up on letters home and take a peek at what the children have been learning. Ask your child to explain the exciting events they have participated in using our regularly updated new picture galleries….

 

Y4 create Roman Onagers! (52 images)

As part of their D&T work Year 4 have gone on the rampage with their very own Roman siege engines. The children found out all about Celtic King Caractacus’s escape to a well-fortified hill fort and designed their model weapons to effectively attack the enemy forces. Making the model onagers (a type of siege engine with a torsion-sprung lever that could fire huge boulders) required a lot of skills. The children learned to accurately measure, mark, saw and join wood. The project culminated with testing of the children’s final products; each class launched an all-out attack on model targets representing the runaway king in his hill fort.

Y4 have an amazing time at Chedworth Roman Villa (83 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.
