We go on some great trips in Year 4 at different times throughout the year.
During the Autumn term we visit a local air raid shelter in Sheen. We get to go down in to the shelter to imagine what it would have been like for the local residents during the time of the war.
After Christmas, we hope to visit the Richmond Museum and look at a collection of Roman artefacts. We also have our own Roman day at school, with fancy dress and Roman inspired activities.
In the Summer term, we get to feel very grown up when we spend two nights at Henley Fort. Henley Fort was used by the Home Guard during WW2. The centre is run by brilliant qualified staff who run activities such as: rock climbing, fire lighting and orienteering. As well as being fun and educational children learn a lot of independent skills and teamwork skills during their time away. On our return to school, we link some of our maths and English learning to our trip.
