Owls Roman Topic 

Owls have had a wonderful time at Mount Cook. As part of their Roman class topic they toook part in archery, dressing up as Roman soldiers. In the evening they did bushcraft - thinking about what the Roman's might have used fire for. 

Below are some recounts by the children of their stay at Mound Cook.

Astrid

At Mount Cook we dressed up as Romans and went outside to do column formations. We also threw spears at the target but my favourite part was the seige. We worked together to build a catapult then we put safety helmets on and finally we got to shoot arrows at each other! In the end it was a draw.

Eli

On the 15th, group 1 did archery tag. Archery tag is where you shoot the other team with your bow and arrow. To get the arrows you have to go into the neutral zone where you can't get hit. To get someone out you have to hit them with the arrow. I hit 10 or more people. We made Roman formations like Testudo (tortisie formation) and we looked at Roman weapons.

The food was really good. For dinner we had spaghetti bolognese and chocolate cake.

Eza

I enjoyed the archery at Mount Cook and the battle with the bows and arrows. I had a good time with my friends.

Scarlett

First we put our bags on the outside benches and had a safety talk. Then we stayed outside and did some activities, like dressing up as a Roman Soldier. Next we found out where we were sleeping and then we had dinner and it was delicious! Last but not least, Mrs Lambert read us our class story 'Romans on the Rampage' by Jeremy Strong.

Finally we went to bed!

 

Owls visit to the Heritage Centre Wirksworth

What have we been doing in Owls Class?

The children in Owls Class have all settled into a busy term. This term we have been learning all about the Stone age to the Iron age.  We have visited the Heritage museum in Wirksworth and learnt all about our local Stone age to Iron age history (including the famous woolly rhino) and studied some artefacts from this period. We have even built a Stonhenge model from biscuits and we have used a choclate fountain for the science topic about changing states! 

Year 4 Experience 'Via Ferrata'

Our Owls Year 4 children were invited to try out a new activity, a ‘Via Ferrata’ at Mount Cook. They had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the session.
