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!

Virtual Greek Reality at the British Museum

Year 4 have enjoyed a very busy and exciting term so far, including a trip to the British Museum. They were able to access the Samsung Digital Discovery Centre with hands-on, interactive activities. The children designed their own virtual Greek Temples and cast their votes on the best materials to be used via tablets. They were also given a budget to use when selecting the materials for their temples on e-boards. They thoroughly enjoyed taking part in an interactive quiz about all things ‘Greek’. Back at school, the children have been exploring Ancient Greek patterns on vases and were able to write their names using the Ancient Greek alphabet. Well done Year 4!

A Great Start to Year 4!!!

Year 4 have settled in extremely well this term and are working very hard across all subjects. They have enjoyed learning about the Iron Man’s Challenge against the angel-space-bat-dragon, and have contributed towards a huge list of similes and metaphors to develop and enhance their independent writing. The children have made Ancient Greek silhouettes and are looking forward to designing and making their very own clay pots. Year 4 have also taken part in a series of democratic elections where they had to vote for new House Captains and School Council Representatives. The children are taking their roles and responsibilities very seriously and this is helping them to develop their understanding of the world and the role they play as members of the School and wider community. What a great start to the New Academic Year. Keep up the great work, Year 4!

Crofton Roman Villa

​Year 4 spent a busy afternoon at Crofton Roman Villa consolidating their knowledge of their history topic, the Romans in Britain. After finding out the history of the actual villa they were in, the children made mosaic patterns and completed brass rubbings of Roman soldiers. Some dressed up as Romans and they looked at evidence found so they could piece together what life was like in Roman times. Finally everybody had the chance to handle Roman artefacts that were 1,800 years old. A very interesting session.

Building Bridges

In our RE topic on Reconciliation  we have been studying the life of Pope John Paul II and how he built a bridge to forgive a prisoner who had tried to assassinate him. After recording how we can forgive those who wrong us we worked at building bridges with construction equipment. First we worked on our own, then with a partner and finally in groups of 4. We learnt that we could build stronger bridges with a partner and even stronger bridges when we worked in bigger groups.
