Trips and Workshops 2017-18

Throughout the academic year, each class attends a school trip linked to an area of study. These
trips aim to further their subject knowledge and give them a more hands on experience of their 
chosen topic. Our children always enjoy these educational visits and are keen to share their 
additional learning with staff, parents and other students.

Celtic Harmony - Year 3

Celtic Harmony Trip

We saw people making a fire. In  the old days they didn’t have any electricity so they had to 
make a fire to keep warm. We built our own tents out of leaves and tree branches and an 
enormous tree. In the stone age they didn’t have houses like we have now so they had to make
their own houses with wood and sticky material. We were told a story about a little princess. A 
fairy made a curse that she would never speak. A magician told the princess that he was going 
to heal her. The magician gave her some medicine. Three days later she was healed. We also 
made a flint out of lolly sticks. We warmed up some soap then used the lolly sticks to cut off 
the edges

St Alban's - Year 4

Year 4’s St Alban’s Trip

Last week we visited the Verulamium Museum because we are learning about the Romans. 
Verulamium used to be the third biggest Roman city in Britain. We saw lots of mosaics—a 
mosaic is a pattern made out of tiny, singular cubes. We saw models of Roman houses and the 
coins they used—some of them were massive! We took part in a workshop to see how they
used to cook. We saw a stove and the types of bowls that they used and we found out they 
used to crush herbs using the bones of animals. Ria and Jamie dressed up like Roman people.
Ria was dressed like she was going to a dinner party and Jamie was dressed as a servant! One 
thing that I found out was when the Romans went to their dinner parties they perfumed their 
feet because they laid down and their feet would have been close to someone’s head.
