This Saturday’s cross country meet at Charlecote Park has been cancelled, due to the strong winds.

Active History at The Croft

Mrs Dennes, Head of Humanities, writes: Last week in History, Year 3 time travellers made their way back to Ancient Egypt and will now be very happy to enlighten you on the ins and outs of mummification – a particularly good conversation for suppertime!

Viking Master Chefs have been hard at work in Year 4, making very good use of the blackberries around us.

With the help of giant Horrible History picture cards and two long ropes marked up in centuries, Years 5 and 6 have been getting to grips with all things chronological. Classes created their very own Great Big Human Timeline, discovering where the time periods they have studied so far, fit in.

The Blitzed Brits, Terrible Tudors and Vicious Vikings jostled for position. The Stormin’ Normans made their way confidently to 1066, meanwhile The Awful Egyptian from each class certainly felt a long way from the action (and yet it was fascinating to realise just how long the era of the Ancient Egyptians lasted). Having ventured back in time to the AD/BC divide, pupils began to gain a visual sense of the reverse order of BC dating.
