On Tuesday, Year 4 took part in a very exciting workshop with the Cherwell Theatre Company. The children learnt all about looking after the environment and how they could have a positive impact on their local community. Park Rangers Stevens and Jackson showed the children how to keep our wildlife safe by always putting our rubbish in the bin and by recycling all of our plastic, paper and cardboard. They showed us how we could make a hedgehog hotel and how to look after the wildlife in our gardens. Year 4 had a great time and they will be continuing with their Park Ranger duties at school and at home.

Chariots

In D.T we used many different skills to make a Roman Chariot. We had to measure and saw pieces of wood to make a frame. We used the hot glue gun to stick the frame together. Within art, we researched and then designed a carriage to go on our frame.

Shields

Within art, we researched and designed our own Roman shields. We looked carefully at the patterns and the colours the Romans used. We then drew our design on cardboard and painted them using poster paints.
