During our Normans Enquiry we learnt all about the fight for the thrown between Harald Hardrada, Harold Godwinson and William the Duke of Normandy. In PE we had our own Battle of Hastings between the Normans and the Saxons – luckily the Normans won!
To round off our Celts and Roman Enquiry work we visited Norwich Castle. While we were there we met a Roman Soldier who showed us the equipment and techniques they used for battle. As well as his wife who talked us through some ancient Roman artefacts along with some replicas. We also met some Celtic women who invited into their roundhouse to tell us their way of life as well as showing us how to make our own Torks.
During Science Week Year 4 took part in a number of exciting experiments including: making parachute, lemonade and observing waxes change of state when heated. As well as learning all about the conservation of the Javan rhinos.
The children really enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters on World Book day. They also worked really well teaching and helping the Year 2s how to make their own Paper Dolls based on the book by Julia Donaldson.
