I hope everyone has had an amazing Christmas and you are all ready to explore and learn in our new topics. May i just take a moment to say thank you all very much for your kind cards and gifts before the half term!
This first week has went by so fast! We set off our new History Topic ‘Frontier: Edge of an Empire’ with a visit to Segedunum. We explored the remains of an excavated fort looking at the different buildings that used to be there and imagined what it would be like to be in those buildings. We climbed a replica of Hadrian’s Wall to see first hand just how big it was; this is something we will be looking deeper into during this topic. We also took part in a Roman Army workshop, learning about the training soldiers went through before joining and the body armour they used to wear. The children had a great time and gained so much from it!
Thank you again to our parent helpers – especially Mr Smith who volunteered to be a solider for the morning!
Have a great weekend.
Miss Bell 🙂
