Crofton Roman Villa

The children visited Crofton Roman Villa in Orpington, where they were able to see some of the remains and architectural structures from around 2000 years ago. They took part in a rotation of sessions including a guided talk by the resident archaeologist, an exploration of what life was like in the Roman villa, examining artifacts and replicas. The children also enjoyed dressing up like a Roman Emperor, Empress or Citizen.

Year 4 Cricket Scheme

Year 4 have been taking part in an exciting Lewisham Cricket Programme where they have received weekly coaching sessions on Wednesdays since the beginning of the Spring Term. This has been a very inspirational and motivational project that has enabled the children to build their confidence in their ability to actively engage with team sports and competently hold and manoeuvre the bat to achieve a more effective strike. They have developed better hand-eye coordination and have improved their bowling and batting skills. The children’s ability to maintain concentration for a prolonged period of time has also helped them to be more settled and focused when completing tasks inside the classroom. Both training coaches Mr Ahmed and Mr Lynch, as well as staff around the school, have been impressed with the children’s good behaviour and enthusiasm for their learning in PE. Well done Year 4!

Year 4 Class Trip to the Junior Chefs Academy at the Green Man

Year 4 enjoyed a fun and educational experience at the Junior Chef’s Academy, where they got the chance to make their own pizzas and take them home! The children enjoyed training as a chef at the Lewisham Training Kitchen, situated at the Green Man. They explored aspects of Health and Safety with regards to cooking and hygiene practices, as well as learning more about the importance of having a Healthy Diet. Year 4 were given aprons and guided through the process of preparing ingredients to create the dough and top the pizza. They enjoyed watching Chef Oghosa demonstrate how to knead and roll the dough, and took part in cooking the sauce. The smell from the ovens was delightful as the children all did the washing up and tidied everything away. They couldn’t wait to see the final results. The pizzas were delicious!

Learning how to cook healthy!
