We are going on a water walk around Leamington to discover all the water sources.
Year 3 and 4 visited Sulgrave Manor in Oxfordshire. Sulgrave Manor is 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.
Emilia wrote about the Stone Age Visitor
We had a special visitor in Year 4 and 3. He had lots to show us. First he showed us all the animals and where they lived.
There were lots of different animals such as hyenas, ponies, mammoths, sabre tooth cats… After we had a break we played a yes / no game, it was really fun. Next we played how to catch a mammoth. Their water bottles were made out of mammoths bladder! After lunch the man showed us a musical instrument there was a leaf shaped plate with string attached to the end. It made a sound like an engine turning on and off.
