Lullingstone Roman Villa 

Year 4 had an amazing day at Lullingstone Roman Villa yesterday. A big thank you to our volunteer Sarah who was a fountain of knowledge and answered many of the children's hard hitting questions. The children explored an ancient roman villa and even found some evidence of Christian symbols in a time when Christianity was illegal to practice. They also worked in groups and became archaeologists, digging for artefacts.

Science Experiment 18/05/22

Year 4 are currently investigating the effect different liquids have on the enamel of our teeth. As we didn't have any spare teeth to hand, we decided to use eggs to carry out our experiment. The eggs have a hard protective outer shell which is similar to the enamel of our teeth. Make sure to come back for the results.   

Congratulations to this week's Good News winners! Well done guys!

UK Parliament Week 2021

Just like MPs and members of the House of Lords use debates to discuss topics and challenge the work of the Government, Year 4 put their debating skills to work this week. Year 4 worked in teams to answer some tough questions: "Do uniforms lead to better behaved pupils?", "Is it wrong to keep any animal as a pet?" and "Should bullies be excluded from schools?".  

They all did an amazing job and we look forward to our next debate.  


Class Trip to Morden Hall Park 19/10/21


We had a fantastic time at Morden Park Hall today. Students worked in groups to measure the physical features of the River Wandle from two different sites. After a big lunch, students set off to catch different invertebrates from the river. A big thank you to Snuff Mill for having us today and leading an excellent session. 

Science Fun!

This half-term we have been learning all about Electricity. Students have good knowledge of the essential components of a circuit. Yesterday, they were put to the test by creating different circuits to see if they were complete or incomplete. 

Come back next week to see us testing different conductors and insulators.
