In history we have been learning about the romans and on Wednesday the 10th of January we went on our school trip to Verulamium museum in St Albans. We had a lovely day and learnt about how the romans changed our local area. We got to hold real roman artefacts then have a look around the museum. We also took a short walk to the hypocaust (roman heating system) and had a go at sketching the beautiful mosaics we saw. We all had a lovely day and would especially like to thank the parents that came along to help us!
In science we have been learning about living things and their habitats. We were really lucky and got a visit from a rabbit and we got to discuss what a rabbit needs to survive and the type of habitats a rabbit would live in. We had lots of fun holding and stroking the rabbit and we even got to feed him. Thank you so much Mrs Battman for bringing him in!
In literacy we had an exciting visit from a mystery person whilst we ate our lunch! A Roman soldier left us a message to help us start our literacy work on persuasive writing. He asked us to use our amazing writing skills to help him recruit new members for the Roman Army.
In literacy this half term we have been focussed on an ancient Roman myth called Romulus and Remus. The story tells us how the city of Rome was created thousands of years ago, and the story behind the man that created it. For our homework this week in year 4, we created our own city – just like Romulus when he created Rome, we could make our city out of anything and we had some amazing ideas. Some of us painted our city map, some built it from boxes and lego and some even made their city out of cake!
