What a Shocker! Well, not really.

Last week Hettie's dad, Mr Jones, came to visit Hazel Class to tell us about the journey that electricity takes from source to our homes. Mr Jones works for an electricity supplier and shared with us loads of great facts and information as well as some really interesting objects like a huge fuse and some of the clothes he wears to protect himself when he goes to work. Samuel and Amy got to try them on but we decided not to field test them ourselves this time around.

For maths homework this week we are asking every member of Hazel class to learn one of the 3,4,6 or 8 times tables off by heart. All children have been given their own laminated sheet with all times tables on for them to learn at home. We have asked the children to choose one of the four tables above and learn to recite them by the end of this week (25th November). All the maths work we have done so far this term is made easier by instant recall of  key times tables and the National Curriculum requires all year four pupils to know them thoroughly (up to ten times tables) by the end of the school year. We will obviously be working hard on these in class but would also greatly appreciate parents support with this whenever possible.

On 31stOctober , Hazel Class joined the rest of Key Stage Two on a trip to Colchester Castle.  We have been studying Romans this term and the visit was of particular interest to us.  The castle vaults are where the Romans that occupied Colchester took refuge when, leader of the Iceni tribe Boudica, stormed the city after being betrayed by the Emperor Nero. The castle was built on top of what was left of a great temple built by Nero’s predecessor Claudius.

We began the day with an activity with the children in groups building and then dismantling a Roman Villa and a Celtic Roundhouse. It was tremendous to see how the children worked together in teams and solved the challenge with only a little prompting from adults present.

After  lunch,  we visited the vaults, climbing down a narrow, steep, stone, staircase and in doing so stepping back over 2000 years. The children were told more of the history of the Roman occupation of Colchester,  examined weapons used by Romans and Celts and heard in gory detail how Boudica vented her anger on the city. It was strange but exciting to be sitting surrounded by the very walls where the Romans sat in fear as she unleashed her ferocious forces.

Finally, we visited the museum, packed with Celtic and Roman artefacts such as coins, vases, weapons and even the skulls of two Celts that had been brutally killed by the Roman invaders (you could still see the marks where they had been hacked at by Roman swords!

We managed to pack a lot in, the children had fun while learning and being inspired by what they saw, heard and touched. We even managed to get back to school on time!
