|Romans and Celts Day|
Today, Thursday 26 February, Year 3 travelled back in time and re-lived the times that Boudicca (Queen of the Iceni Tribe) took on the Romans. We dressed up and took part in a number of activities to learn about and debate the events.
In the Courtroom the children listened to the trial of Boudicca and the Roman Governor. They then had to decide who was innocent or less guilty.
Who wore this?
Children also had a chance to dress up in clothes and talk about how they were different and what they said about the different peopleliving in the Roman times - were they rich? Were they poor? Some fantastic thinking and questions were raised by the children who were fully engaged in the activities.
Today Year 6 linked through Skype to an organisation called shark angels. This is a group that is helping to educate people on the importance of helping to protect sharks. Jamie, from Shark Angels spoke to the children about some of the adaptations of sharks as well talking about their importance to the ecosystem and food chains of the oceans.
Children were given an opportunity to share some of their knowledge of sharks and find out a little more about the different varieties sharks and their eating habits. The children also learnt about how humans are destroying the shark populations and the reasons for this.

|Year 5 Science at Gregg's School|
27th March - Year 5 go to Gregg's School for Science Activities
Today Mrs Daly and I took a group of Year 5 children to the Gregg's School for an afternoon of Science. When we arrived we were given our Science lab coats and from then on the imagination and wonder abounded. Children were curious and enthusiastic to ask questions and listen to each other's reasoning and thinking.
They worked co-operatively to investigate a variety of ideas and were frequently amazed with their findings. A fabulous afternoon which allowed them to question and apply their scientific understanding. Don't take my word for it look at the pictures below and read their comments.
