Doncaster Museum

A day at Doncaster Museum

Last week year 3 got the chance to visit the brand new Doncaster Museum. After the excitement of travelling on a coach, the children had the opportunity to take part in a fantastic Roman workshop. During the workshop, the children dressed up as Romans and Celts, handled 2000 year old artefacts, designed Roman mosaics and even played Roman board games. After the workshop, we got the opportunity to explore the rest of the museum, with the children taking a particular liking to the interactive art!

The children represented the school wonderfully, and I received lots of lovely feedback from members of the public about how polite and respectful the children had been as they were going around the museum. Well done 3LG!

A very Roman visit from Ronulus

Rewind some 2000 years and 3HJ found themselves in Roman Britain! What a wonderful day we had learning all about the Roman way of life from a huge selection of artefacts including children’s toys, coins and jewellery. The children got so much from a hands on learning approach and we’re amazed to discover how Ronulus spent his time!
Check out the amazing costumes too!

Relentless fun with Roman Ron

Today Year 3 were transported back in time to Roman Britain. The children dressed up as Romans and even had a visit from Roman Ron. They spent the morning learning all about roman artefacts, from children’s toys and games to parts of a wall! This afternoon the children then took part in a “Roman Army Workshop”, where they learned to march and stand to attention like the Roman Army. We think y3 look amazing in the Roman armour, even if the helmets were a little big!

Representing Numbers

3HJ have had their heads in the game this week and have made an awesome start to their maths work. The beautiful weather has enabled us to to take lots of our learning outside. Today Children challenged each other to represent a range of numbers in many different ways. Here we are using Base 10. Super learning on a super morning!

The Crew Gate Roman Army

Truly Legion!

What a fantastic start to the school year by 4GC! They have settled brilliantly, worked hard and demonstrated our core values in abundance throughout the week. This term’s expedition is entitled ‘Relentless Romans’ and we have been busy this week making Roman shields, traditional mosaics and even and centurion’s battle helmet! In these accompanying pictures, you can marvel at the detail and precision at which these shields have been put together. Perhaps the best way to summarise our efforts this week is through the Roman Latin phrase ‘Carpe Diem‘…Indeed, 4GC have Seized the Day.

Exploring the work of Quentin Blake

This week, we are excited to reveal some of the wonderful art work we are creating for our walking guide. We have taken our inspiration from the magnificent and extremely talented artist Quentin Blake – the author of countless Roald Dahl and David Walliams books.

Our crew used peer assessment and critique to improve they’re first draft and I am exceptionally impressed with the progress so far!

The Water Cycle

This week, we have spent time investigating how water moves around the water cycle. 3HJ thoroughly enjoyed creating their very own ‘water cycles’ but adding food colouring to water. The children drew the different stages onto clear plastics which we hung on the windows in our classroom.

We can’t wait to see the results!
