To enrich our learning about the Victorian period, all children enjoyed visiting Bacup museum where they experienced items, stories and a scavenger hunt to identify key items.  Children enjoyed making a rag rug which they all said was 'fun but fiddly'.  Thank you to Bacup museum for supplying resources to support the children's learning.


After completing our RE unit of Islam, children enjoyed visiting a mosque to make links with the 5 pillars of Islam.  During their visit, they saw the wudu area, prayer halls, classrooms, a meeting room, community areas and the library.  Thank you to the mosque for welcoming our group.  


During our latest enrichment visit, we explored the creation story through the 'Threads' exhibition.  Each textile panel showed a different part of the creation story which has been created with 8 million hand-crafted stitches.  The amount of detail inspired the children to create their own stained glass window showing a part of the creation story.  Children enjoyed learning about symbolism in the cathedral and brought home a piece of their own detailed artwork.  


Here are some of the amazing exhibits we saw at the Roman museum in Ribchester.  All children had the chance to try on Roman replica armour and they visited the remains of the original Roman granary which was part of the Roman fort at Ribchester.  They stood on what would have been the main Roman that led to Hadrian's Wall.    The ceremonial mask on display was a replica of a real Roman ceremonial helmet that was found in Britain.  Only 3 have been found in Britain!  The real artefact is on display in the British Museum in London.


Here is an overview of what the children in Year 4 will be learning this half term.
