Year 4: Viking Day

Year 4 began their latest History topic by spending the day with a Viking named Hilty Gunnerson. Our 52 young historians really looked the part dressed in their amazing Viking outfits. They learnt facts about the lifestyle, beliefs and homes of the Norse seafarers who settled in Britain over 1,200 years ago. Our pupils held artefacts, re-enacted some Viking games and battles, and took part in a quiz to gain knowledge about this period in history. One pupil tried on a chain mail top and reported that it was extremely heavy. Finally, Hilty used a watermelon to demonstrate the power of a Viking sword.

Thank you, parents, for helping the children with their superb costumes for this special day.

Year 1: Baptism

Year 1 have been learning about Baptism and its importance to Christians. To bring the ceremony to life, Reverend Sue Creighton visited our school to walk the children through the different parts of this religious occasion. Some children donned some formal clothes and were chosen as parents and Godparents. They chose names for their newborn babies and listened intently to the promises they made. Reverend Sue helped the children gain a greater understanding of this Christian ceremony in a fun and engaging way

For their last RE lesson in this unit, the children wrote and decorated a letter thanking the vicar for visiting and helping them.

2HM Literacy: Writing letters home

Literacy Week 2019 focussed on The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and the adventures of the Pevensie children. After making evacuee tags, packing suitcases with clothes and favourite teddies, 2HM waved goodbye to their parents and boarded a steam train to take them from the dangers of war-torn London to the safety of the countryside.

The children reflected on their journey, described their new lodgings and family and thought about how they felt about all that had happened to them. Also, they wrote some wonderful letters home to their loved ones, letting them know that they had arrived safely. They were able to empathise with the Pevensie children, really thinking about how it must have felt to be an evacuee, and they also understood how different their life in the country would be to their life in London. Great work 2HM.
