Year 4's Roman Experience in Chester, by Miss Opdam

Date: 4th Dec 2015 @ 10:13am

Year 4 had an amazing day in Chester. We did the following: walked like Romans; dressed like Romans; fought like Romans; ate like Romans; drank like Romans and partied like Romans! From gladiator fights to walking on the Roman walls; from handling Roman artefacts to eating chocolate dormice and of course marching through the streets of Chester as a Roman army! Have a look at the photographs of our wonderful day...

Year 4 Swimming - 30/6/15, by Mrs Whelan

Date: 23rd Jun 2015 @ 8:36pm

Next week's swimming lesson sounds sure to be an exciting one! Children have been asked to bring a pair of pyjamas to wear for their lesson! These should preferably be long trousers and a top, but shorts are suitable too. No onesies or nighties please! Children still need to bring along their usual swimming kit (to wear underneath) and towel, and we also ask that you bring a large carrier bag or bin bag so that the children can put their wet things into it for the rest of the day. I can't wait for what sounds like it will be a super fun lesson!
