Show and Tell
On Wednesday, we experienced some extreme scootering in the school playground! We were so impressed that Curie class had to get involved and watch too - there's nothing like jumping over your brother on a scooter to create a bit of excitement!
Crime and Punishment
We have now begun our topic of crime and punishment, which we are all very excited about! We've started by looking at the middle ages and the punishments and crimes that were common during the Anglo-Saxon period. The children learned all about the stocks, gibbet and the ordeals of fire, water and combat. They also did some beautiful sketches of these last week too!
KS2 trip to Chedworth Roman Villa
On Monday 10th July the whole of Key Stage 2 visited Chedworth Roman Villa to help bring our Romans topic to life. It was a really magical day.
We all experienced being archaeologists by working out what the Romans would have eaten and drunk by studying real artefacts, such as bones, rocks, metalware and earthenware.
We also had an amazing tour of the excavated site and could imagine what it would have been like to take a bath (a lot of oil and scraping), dine, make offerings to the gods, walk along the beautiful and intricate mosaics and use the 'lavatorium'!
In one workshop we dressed up as Roman slaves and were allocated jobs. We had to wear tags around our necks and sacks as tunics. We also ground up herbs and spices that the Romans would have used to cure illnesses or help people sleep.
A lot of fun was had and a lot of learning was done by all!
Year 5/6 Sharing Assembly
Well done to all of the Year 5 and 6 children who took part in our sharing assembly and thank you to all parents who were able to come and see it. Great enthusiasm during the team building afterwards too!
Year 5 Music Festival
On Monday 19th June, the Year 5s spent the day practising a mixture of ABBA songs with lots of other schools in the partnership at Burford. The children behaved wonderfully and sang their hearts out. A huge well done and thank you to those children (and parents!) who also attended the evening performance, as well as the choir - you were fantastic and I'm very proud!
