What a fantastic, creative, fun day! 3 Red have been learning about being a Roman. We made mosaics, Roman coins and shields. We then pretended to be gladiators, soldiers and musicians. Watch our video to see all the amazing things we did.

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-The final few hours!

After an eventful few hours the evacuees finally fell asleep on the floor (well on extra thick comfortable mats). Our children were just perfect, including the children that snored during the night and those that insisted on speaking (in their sleep)! We have just added a few more clips and photographs of the night and […]

The activities during the evening incorporated many wonderful, exciting and thought provoking learning experiences. This however, would not have been possible without the staff.

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-Games

Children have always had access to games, although the types of games available today may have changed. The children were encouraged to play in groups and individually. During wartime many of the toy factories started to make guns and plane parts, so there was a shortage of new toys. During this time many of the […]

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-Virtual Reality

The children have been learning about the heavy and frequent attacks on London and other cities including Coventry. The VR learning experience was to help the children to feel part of ‘Blitzkrieg’ (lightning war). Most of the air raids took place at night. One devastating raid on Coventry on 14th November 1940 was the biggest […]

Year 4 Blitz Night 2020-Make and Mend!

Hand repairing clothing became a necessary part of life during wartime. People were encouraged to improve their sewing skills. A report on Public Welfare requested government support for an official ‘Make and Mend’ campaign. What did you mend? How would you feel if the campaign was reintroduced?

We’ve been researching and finding out about Julius Caesar. Some of us worked together to make a poster and a video to show what we learnt and others wrote biographies. You can read some below. When was Julius Caesar born? What were his children called? Who kidnapped him? What were some of his achievements?

Wednesday 5th February 2020 – Read Aloud Day

World Read Aloud Day is February 5, 2020! A 2015 study has found that children are exposed to a larger vocabulary from books which are read to them rather than from conversations with adults. This is because we tend to speak with the same 5000 most popular words. While books — even picture books — […]
