Year 4 - Latest News

Roman Day

To support our Romans topic, Year Four had a dedicated day to explore the Romans as a whole year group together. We all came in dressed as Ancient Romans; goddesses, rich citizens and even centurions. After having a year group photo, we got into teams to build our very own 3d model of a Roman town. We even built temples, slums, villas, ampitheatres and baths. After break, we looked at some Roman artefacts including a sponge on a stick that was shared after using the communal toilets! Mr Vaughan completed army drills with the children's shields making lots of different shield formations. In the afternoon, we had a visit from a theatre company and we all acted out many different aspects of Roman life. Some of us were Celts fighting the Roman army at Hadrian's all or even citizens visiting the baths. Thanks to all the parents for the fabulous outfits. A fun day was had by all.

Science Day at Greensward!

A group of Plumberow pupils from Years 3&4 joined pupils from Ashingdon, Hockley and Westerings at a Science Day hosted by Greensward Academy!

They had a fantastic day and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the activities which included using a microscope to study plant and animal cells, carrying out a test to decide which solutions were acid and which were alkali, some chromatography, which involved colouring a pattern on filter paper and seeing how the colours separated and then, using electrical circuits, they looked at the relationship between voltage and current!!

A VERY busy day!
