Year 4 Overnight Camp Outdoor Adventure 12th & 13th June: Year 4 set off on their overnight camping trip to Fernhill Farm on 12th June. They enjoyed a range of outdoor activities including an assault course, a water fight and team building games. The event was a great success and the children ended the day with a talent show followed by hot chocolate and marshmallows around the camp fire. For many children this was their first experience of camping and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and all had a fantastic experience. Thank you to the staff who gave up their own time to take the children, activities like this cannot take place without their support. Thank you also to the team from Osprey for making the visit so enjoyable.
Avon Wildlife Trust Visit and Bristol Water Project: At the beginning of Term 5, the Year 4 children were fortunate to be visited by the Avon Wildlife Trust and Bristol Water giving the children an opportunity to take part in activities and workshops. They learned how to look after the elvers which they cared for during 4 weeks. During a visit, Avon Wildlife Trust taught the children about conservation issues and projects which are in place to help the eels survival.
At the end of Term 5, the Year 4 classes visited Blagdon Lake to release the elvers. During the day the children worked closely with Bristol Water and Avon Wildlife Trust representatives to learn more about Blagdon Lake and Eel Conservation. They had an opportunity to feed rainbow trout and were also involved in poetry and art workshops.
World Book Day 1st March 2018: pupils and staff came to school dressed in their fantastic World Book Day costumes. The children were able to take part in a variety of Dr Seuss based activities within school. Thank you to all our parents and carers for your support with the wonderful costumes.

They were led by Mrs Anne Clough, from North Somerset Music Service, for a fantastic afternoon of singing together. Songs included Wonderful World and The Mexican Counting song. The children had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and all sang brilliantly.
Friday 13th October : Year 4 Educational Visit to Caerleon Roman Fort Wales (letter sent home, see copy below)
Year 4 Roman WOW Day: During Term 1 the Year 4 Roman WOW day, the children dressed up and learnt about daily life. They studied Roman numerals and Roman food and then created a menu using the information they had learnt. The 4S classroom was transformed into a Roman Bath House and the children experienced what it would have been like to wash in the different temperature rooms and use a Roman strigil. The children are now looking forward to learning even more about the Romans at their Educational Visit to the Caerleon Roman Museum on 13th October.
