The Year 4's have worked incredibly hard on their play this week and we can't wait for you all to see it on Monday and Tuesday! We performed the dress rehearsal to the whole school today and it was fantastic. The children did amazingly and I was incredibly proud of them all!
Some of the Year 4 class who attend after school tag rugby also participated in a tournament this afternoon with some of the Year 5 and 6's. It was wet and windy but the children were fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed it!
On Tuesday, we visited Escot to take part in their History program (Anglo-Saxon’s experience). The weather was fantastic and the members of staff had a full list of activities for us to participate in.
We started by completing a maze before heading to the Anglo - Saxon village and engaging in the daily routines and jobs that the Anglo - Saxons would have done. These included: baking bread, mental work (making a roach), woodwork and writing by carving into wood.
After lunch, we explored the park and learnt about the animals that were living in England at that time. As the children were so brilliantly behaved, we spent the last 20 minutes of the day playing and having fun in the park.
The members of staff at Escot were amazed at the children’s behaviour and mentioned that they were a credit to the school. They also kindly gifted us the materials and artefacts that we had made which are now on display in the classroom.
We'd like to say a huge thank you to the PTA for contributing towards the cost of our trip. It's very much appreciated and a good day was had by all!
