On Wednesday 21st November we went on our school trip to the Verulamium Museum in St Albans. We got to see so many amazing Roman artefacts and even got to touch some of them - lots of the items we held were over 2000 years old! We saw lots of mosaics and even went to the Hypocaust which had 220,000 individual tiles. Miss Nosworthy tried to count them but it was very tricky. We would like to say a huge thank you to the parents that came and helped out on the day, we had such a brilliant time!
Here are some pictures of us with our finished Roman Chariots - we loved making them this week and learnt lots of new skills.
This term we had an enrichment week that followed the theme 'Move it, Move it'. As well as doing some really fun actvities throughout the week we focussed on using this time to make some moving Roman chariots. We used lots of different techniques and skills to help create our chariots and they ended up looking great. Here are some pictures of us making our Roman chariots.
In honour of Remembrance day, every class in the school chose to create a poppy for each child to go on a whole school display. We spent a long time thinking about the significance of the poppy and what it means to us. We chose to sew our poppies out of felt and buttons. We all tried really hard with our sewing skills and the finished poppies look great!
In History we have been focussing on learning about the Romans. We continued our Roman learning into our art lessons and spent some time researching and designing our own version of a Roman mosaic. We cut the tiles, placed them carefully onto our board and used grout to hold the tiles in place. The finished result was amazing! Here are some pictures of us making our mosaic tiles.
