What a busy and wonderful week we have had!

When I arrived on Monday morning I had quite a shock!  As I walked into my classroom I was amazed to find Emperor Hadrian sitting on my step.  What a delightful and funny way to start the week.  Thank you Sebastian – I love him and don’t want to give him back.  You will have to look at the pictures to see what I am talking about.

Ken Brooks also visited us on Monday morning.  He showed us some clips and told us all about how the Romans in Britain would have lived and how advanced they were.  He had numerous artefacts for us to hold and the children now have lots of things they would like to find out about Britain in the Roman era.

Then on Monday afternoon Lucy P, Connie M, James L and Ethan S went off to Yardley Court for a maths challenge.  I drove up and down the A21 a few times to get there whilst the children practised their times tables.  Thank goodness for sat navs!  Once there, the children worked in pairs to solve puzzles and work out maths questions.  It was quite challenging, but they did very well and it was great fun.

On Tuesday the dentist arrived in our science lesson!  She looked rather familiar, but was very knowledgeable about teeth.  We are not sure where she came from, but she certainly had an interesting accent.  The children answered lots of questions and listened carefully.  I think the dentist was rather scared of Hadrian and she wondered if he looked after his teeth!

The week has quietened down since then for Year 4, but you never know what might happen in the De Beer block next!
