Castell Henllys 

Y3/4 had an amazing day at Castell Henllys in West Wales. We were met by a Celtic man and the fun began. We walked across the bridge and roared as loudly as we could to go back in time!

We have been researching Poland and writing persuasive texts in the form of leaflets about Poland. After researching, homes, education, geography, population, landmarks, food and cities we had a 'Polish Feast'.

Zuzanna's parents provided Polish food and drinks and we made a Polish cheesecake. It was all scrumptious!

We have been learning about Celtic Life and researching homes, clothing, hill forts, food, cooking, warriors and Boudicca. Pupils have made truly amazing Celtic round houses using recyclable materials.

This week we have continued looking at our recount writing with the myth of Romulus and Remus. We have then imagined ourselves to be one of the characters and recounted the story, first drafting in our language books and then typing up our work on laptops.

 

We have also started drawing our own calligrams using flight as a theme, decorating pictures with words relating to our topic.
