During Heritage week, we followed the footsteps of Romans and walked the perimeter of the Verulamium wall.
We used aerial photographs of the area and then on tracing we drew our impressions of what it would have looked like during Roman times using and including information from our research.
We had a great day at Whipsnade Zoo, we learnt all about adaptation and habitats. We were able to handle a snake and we saw lots of animals.
This half term our BAME influencer is Jean-Michel Basquiat. He was an American artist who rose to success during the 1980s as part of the Neo-expressionism movement. His artwork was used to illustrate the Maya Angelou poem 'Life doesn't frighten me'. We created our own version of the poem and illustration.
