Magic Me

A group of Year 4 children have been working with some older adults from the local community on an inter-generational project organised by ‘Magic Me’.  Working with artists Liane Harris and Verity Standen, over the equivalent of five days, the group has used sound and image to create collage portraits including photography, collage, drawing and sound recordings.

The project culminated in a performance and exhibition at the Idea Store in Whitechapel.  It showed that some shared understanding and empathy had been created during the course of an exciting creative experience.

Y4 Roman Visit

On Wednesday 7th March, the children in Y4 visited The Museum of London.

We went there to learn more about  Romans in Britain, after learning  in class that they played an important role in history for Britain.

The Romans built the city where London now stands, bridging the Thames and creating Londinium. From around AD 50 to 410, this was the largest city in Britannia and a vital international port.

Did you know?

Very few of the Roman Londoners came from Rome itself.
The skeleton of a Spitalfields Woman is the only person so far in Roman Britain known to have come from Rome.

We had an wonderful day, and when we came back to school we had the opportunity to share some of the information we found out.
