Following up from our exciting find we also were lucky enough to have a visit from two local archaeologists. They showed many Roman artifacts from a recent dig they had done. Both Emma and Dan were impressed by the excellent "thought provoking" questions the children asked and by their good behaviour -well done Year 4!

Think of an animal that lives on grasslands. How would you describe it? Tell someone at home or school the adjectives and nouns which you would use and see if they can guess the creature.

Wow when faced with a team work challenge Oak showed how well they can work together when given a paper chain making challenge! In just a short time they met their targets they set themselves and in some cases managed to make the chains even longer. Decisions about the width of the paper to cut, whether glue or tape worked better were all part of the decisions they needed to make. Great work and looking forward to building on this cooperation over the next few weeks.
🔺The children have been put into teams to improve their team work skills. The children had 10 minutes, 8 sheets of paper, 2 pairs of scissors and 2 glue sticks to make the longest paper chain they could. The team work was amazing as you can see from the results.... More team challenges next week.....
