Year 4 visit Murton Park

Year 4 visited Murton Park on Thursday 22nd January. It was a very cold day but we had all wrapped up warmly! We dressed up as Roman soldiers, it was quite difficult to keep our helmets on and carry a spear and shield at the same time! We signed up to the army for 25 years and then made clay oil lamps as well as practising our weapons training. Later in the day a Celt attacked our fort but we saw him off! At the end of our visit we tried the Testeudo formation and then marched off home, left, right, or, as the Romans would have said:SIn, Dex, Sin, Dex!P1000032The main gate.

Murton Park

Year 3 have survived the coldest day ever at Murton Park!

As you can see from the photos, it was a very busy day. As well as making clay lamps, learning how to write in Latin, and battle practise we even had to scare off a Celt!

Although it was FREEZING, everyone had a great time, learned lots and made it back from the fort safely. As usual, all the children were wonderfully well behaved and we were very proud of them.

It’s all normal

As part of Anit-Bullying month we have been raising disability awareness here at Lakeside Primary School.  We were lucky enough to have a day of workshops lead by John McCorkell who inspired the children and really made us all think about what we can achieve if believe in ourselves.  The aptly named workshop, It’s All Normal, made the children realise that though everyone is different, everyone is also normal.  Children got the chance to experience what it would be like to have a disability and how they could manage this to still be able to achieve.
