A fantastic day was had by all when we visited St Paul’s Primary School. As part of Day of the African Child we took part in a variety of activities including: African drumming, singing, African Dancing and story telling. This year’s theme was Safer Schools, we created posters on this theme and gave them to our local MP (Matt Western) to share back in parliament.
Recently Years 3 and 4 went to Lunt Fort because their topic is the Romans. They had the opportunity to do role play, being Roman soldiers and defending the fort from the Celts. They looked at the design of Roman buildings and what life was like in Roman times. The second activity they did took part in the museum. It was a really fun and educational afternoon.
Year 3 have been taking part in a drama session linked to their Roman topic with Katie Kent from Campion School.
Year 3 have been studying the work of Andy Goldsworthy and have created their own art work inspired by him.
To launch their new topic, Year 3 and 4 went on a wet pilgrimage around Leamington to investigate its unique waters. To begin with, they went to the canal, which luckily neighbours our school. After that, they went to another iconic place in Leamington, the Baths, where they learnt why Leamington is a spa town. The children even visited the spring, however it has been replaced by a statue resembling the flowing waters. Finally they reached Jephson Gardens to look at the waterfall cascading under Mill Bridge, as well as looking at the pond in the centre of the park. It was a good trip!
