Year 3 and 4 went on a wet pilgrimage around Leamington to investigate Leamington’s unique waters. To start off , they went to the canal, which luckily is a neighbour to our school. After that, they went to another iconic place in Leamington, the Baths, where they learnt about why Leamington is a spa town. The children even visited the spring, however it has been replaced by a statue resembling the flowing waters. On top of this, the class finally reached Jefferson Gardens to look at the waterfall cascading from mill bridge, as well as looking at the pond in the centre of the park.
Year 3 and 4 visited Sulgrave Manor. A Tudor and Georgian house built by direct ancestors of George Washington. During their visit, the children enjoyed dressing in Tudor Costumes and going into the Tudor bedrooms to find out that babies used to be hung off the wall to stop them being eaten by RATS!
Year 3 and 4 will be visiting Sulgrave Manor to support their learning.
Holly wrote about the Stone Age visitor:-
We learnt about the dangerous animals and when they killed a mammoth how they used the bladder. We learnt about what they ate and how they survived. After lunch we learnt about stone circles. Then we made a stone circle out of jenga blocks. We marched around the stone circles and sang a song. Then we had a look at the weapons from a long time ago. we talked about deer hunting, then went outside to hunt a chair which was covered in fur. When we went back inside we saw a sabre tooth tiger skull. My favourite part was seeing real life weapons.
