Autumn in Year R

Y4 Roman Day

Today we celebrate 400 years of the Roman Empire in Britain. Our Soldiers completed a final march, our chefs prepared a lavish feast and our artisans designed a marvelous mosaic floor. However, change is coming, as worrying rumours of attacks on Rome suggest that these may be the final days of Imperial control of Britain!

Y1 Maths

Year 1 have been very busy in Maths this half term. The children have been learning about place value; knowing how many tens and units make a number. They have been enjoying practising their counting to and from 20, especially with the flossing monkey to help them! When learning their number bonds to 10 and 20, the children have been using their wiggly fingers to help them.

Y1 Baking Bread

The children had the opportunity to bake some bread rolls this half term. They had to use their measuring, mixing, kneading and rolling skills to create the perfect bread rolls. The children had lots of fun during this activity.

Y1 Wonderful Me

This half term, Year 1's topic has been Wonderful Me. We have been learning all about our 5 senses; writing poems using them and learning about Louis Braille. In our RE, we baked some delicious bread rolls and have produced some lovely Autumnal trees in our Art work. We used our knowledge of colour mixing to make the autumn colours for our trees and have been observing the changes within the season.

A visit to the Oakwood Museum

Year 4 took an exciting trip to Oakwood's very own Roman museum. While we were there we had to work out what each artifact was used for by the Romans, before some of us got into character as some of the different people from the Roman era.

All About Me

Harvest Festival

We held our Harvest Festival last week and what a wonderfully generous array of donations we had!

Thank you to everyone who donated for this event. Southampton City Mission volunteers arrived with their van that afternoon to transport the goods back to the Southampton Basics Bank, where it will be distributed to families in need.
