Trip to Broomhills Farm
Year 4-5 Gold
Yr 3 – 5 enjoyed a visits to Lynewood forest to learn about the forest habitats. Although the weather was not so kind, the children loved being outside and getting wet and dirty! Everyone had the opportunity to build dens, make some beautiful natural art pieces and also enjoyed toasting marshmallows! The children also then helped with some jobs on the nearby farm; feeding the donkeys, collecting eggs and looking after Larry the pet lamb!
This is what the children said about their visit;
“I loved building the forts in the forest and I loved the view”
“I enjoyed making the dens and toasting marshmallows, I would like to go again!” Sophie
” I loved all of it!” Lydia
” I learned that outside is a fun place!” Ellie
Visit to Tullie House Museum – Egyptian Workshop- Year 4-5 Gold
Year 4-5 Gold developed their knowledge and understanding of “Life and Death in Ancient Egypt” by taking part in a workshop at Tullie House.

We even got to mummify Tutantullie – our favourite activity.
Visit to Tullie House Museum – Egyptian Workshop- Year 3-4 Gold
At the Ancient Egyptian workshop we impressed the staff at Tullie with our knowledge about the Egyptians and their Gods. We learned more about mummification and took part in an Egyptian Death Ceremony. We looked closely at some genuine artefacts, which included hieroglyphic carvings and minerals used for make-up. Also researched objects used by the people of the time and had the chance to dress like an Egyptian! We all had a great time.
Mrs Ewin and Mrs Armstrong’s class worked together with Mrs Cook’s class to plan, prepare and rehearse a beautiful Easter Worship. They told the story through poetry, drama, dance, music and singing.
Children in Year 4/5 Gold were challenged to look at a variety of circuits and predict whether or not the circuit would allow the bulb to light. They then constructed the circuits to test their predictions.
National Woodland Reserve visitor Year 3 and Year 4
Sue Woodland borrowed some things from Tullie House in order to talk to all of Year 3 and 4 about local habitats and their food chains.
Year 3/4 Gold Visit to Tullie House – The Stone Age
Year 3/4 Gold, Mrs Cook’s class, visited Tullie House for a Stone Age workshop…we all had fun and were kept busy! We made a giant timeline…took part in stone circle role play, went on a treasure hunt, looked carefully at and handled real Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age artefacts…created our own lunular necklaces worn in the Bronze Age and discussed how homes changed during those times!
Year 4/5 Gold Trip to Tullie House – The Stone Age
We visited Tullie House Museum to find out more about our Topic on The Stone Age. First we looked at a human timeline to show us how long ago the Stone Age was. We handled artifacts (very carefully) and tried to put them in the right period of time, The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We looked at pots, flints, stone axes and arrow heads, the museum was very sneaky and didn’t include any artifacts from the Iron Age to try and catch us out. We took part in Role Play (trading for goods), Fact finding and Art activities and we all really enjoyed finding out more interesting facts about the people in The Stone Age and the how they lived.
