Year 4 Trip to Aston Hall - 17th April 2018
On Tuesday, Year 4 embarked on a trip to Aston Hall. As Birmingham has been the focus of our Topic Week, studying the involvement of Birmingham in the English Civil War has been an interesting history lesson. Approaching 400 years since it was built, the children were fortunate to be able to visit the remarkable home of Sir Thomas Holte. This was a fantastic experience for them as they were able to imagine key events of the war during their guided tour of the building. Some children even had the opportunity to dress up as Holte, Oliver Cromwell, King Charles and Queen Henrietta, as well as holding replica weapons and re-enacting the role of pikemen soldiers. The children were respectful and very well behaved throughout the duration of the trip and were yet again a credit to the school.
Year 4 Visit to Islamic Exhibition – 5th June 2018
On Tuesday Year 4 visited the Islamic Exhibition where they observed and learned about the Islamic faith, noting the similarities and differences in their beliefs compared to our own. It was a wonderful opportunity to appreciate what a multi-cultural society we live in - in which we can each have our own beliefs whilst respecting and tolerating other faiths around us. The children were impeccably behaved and their intelligent questions were appreciated and answered. Our hosts were very impressed and wrote a letter saying so.
